ReSTOR® – Cataract Surgery Lens

Cataract surgery is one of the most successful and safest procedures performed today. Cataract surgery has advanced in recent decades into a painless, 15 to 20-minute outpatient procedure.

What is ReSTOR®?

The ReSTOR® lens is the latest advancement in cataract eye surgery, designed to enhance image quality and restore vision at all distances for cataract patients.

Vision at all distances

The AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® IOL is designed to improve vision at all distances – near, far, and everything in-between.

What are Cataracts?

Developing a cataract is just as normal and expected as any other change in the aging process. A cataract is the result of a natural change occurring inside your eye; a gradual clouding and hardening of your lens that can make your vision foggy and blurry over time.

Cataract development begins when proteins in the lens begin to cluster together, forming dense and solid clumps. As time goes by, these protein clusters will eventually cloud your lens, limiting light to pass through. The small amount of light that does make it to the retina is dispersed and scattered, making your vision out of focus. Leaving cataracts untreated may lead to a complete loss of vision.

Symptoms of Cataracts

  • Blurred vision is the earliest and most common signs of cataracts.
  • Faded or dull colors. Colors seem less vibrant and vivid, and shades become more and more difficult to differentiate.
  • Poor night vision. As your cataracts develop, you will find it more and more difficult to see objects in dim light.
  • Sensitivity to light. Lights may seem extremely bright, and/or have a halo effect.

The latest advancements in cataract lens surgery

Through the latest innovations and advancements in vision technology, Dr. Gwynn can restore full functional vision. In 4 out of 5 cases, the need for glasses or contacts can be eliminated altogether.

Vision Correction at All Distances

Previous standard lenses were only able to correct for near or far vision, leaving patients needing glasses for one or the other. However, with the AcrySof® ReSTOR® Multifocal developed by Alcon (the world’s leading eye care company), a premium intraocular lens is now available to correct vision at all distances. The AcrySof® ReSTOR® Multifocal Lens has multiple focal points to correct near, intermediate, and distance vision.

Vision Correction for Astigmatism Patients

The AcrySof® Toric® IOL is a lens with a single focal point that can correct not only your cataract, but your pre-existing astigmatism. The Toric® IOL creates excellent distance vision without the help of glasses or contact lenses for astigmatism patients.

ReSTOR® Surgery Process

Process – Day of Surgery

$

STEP ONE

After making a microscopic self-healing incision in your eye, Dr. Gwynn will insert a probe to break up and remove the cloudy, cataract-affected lens.
$

STEP TWO

The flexible artificial IOL (intraocular lens) is folded up and inserted into the lens capsule, where the lens unrolls and opens up. The arms of the lens unfold to keep it in the proper position.

STEP THREE

TYour vision is restored. With the old cataract removed, and the new IOL in place, light can once again travel unhindered to the back of your eye, for clearer, more youthful vision.

Process – After Surgery

  • Patients return home the very same day.
  • Eye drops may be prescribed to avoid infection and to help with the healing process.
  • You will need to wear dark, polarized sunglasses for light sensitivity.
  • Most patients are back to their routine activities within a few days of recovery.

I brought my 3 year old and 7 month old in for eye checkups. The front office staff were so nice and efficient. The nurse or assistant that took us back was so amazing with my 3 year old and made sure she understood what she was being asked. It had potential to be a terrible experiment but was absolutely wonderful. Dr. Weiss was so great with my kids also. We will definitely be back.
