ReSTOR is a multifocal intraocular lens (IOL), used to replace the natural lens of your eye. You can choose the ReSTOR lens whether you are having cataract surgery or Clear Lens Exchange. Rather than working with your eye muscles, as Crystalens does, ReSTOR uses gradual steps in focus to provide clear distance and near vision. To some extent it’s like the ReZoom IOL.
The technology used in ReSTOR is much like that used in microscopes and telescopes. It gives you clear distance, intermediate, and near vision by using tiny stair steps from the center to the edge of the lens. They bend incoming light rays at different angles, to make them focus clearly at different distances. Unlike the Crystalens, ReSTOR IOLs are not attached to the eye muscles.
The center of the ReStOR lens provides your near vision. The concentric rings of the lens focus farther away as the incoming light rays hit the step levels nearer the lens edge.
All lighting conditions
The ReSTOR lens provides clear vision at any distance, and in all lighting conditions.
Very tiny incision
The ReSTOR lens is flexible, and it is folded up before it is inserted into the eye. This means that the incision can be very tiny. Once inserted, the lens unfolds. The tiny incision gives you a very rapid recovery and minimal discomfort.
