          Sight changing, life changing.

Introducing a breakthrough in vision surgery.

Now there's a revolutionary new way to potentially leave your glasses behind forever – the innovative AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® intraocular lens (IOL), the latest advancement in cataract surgery technology. The AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® IOL has been uniquely designed to provide enhanced image quality and a full range of vision – up close, far away and everything in-between – giving cataract patients the best opportunity to live life free of glasses.

Previously, the IOLs used in cataract procedures provided good distance vision, but offered little benefit in the way of a full range of vision. This meant that people with IOL implants still needed reading glasses from time to time. Now, however, there is a new option: The AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® IOL is designed to improve vision at all distances – near, far and everything in-between.

Does this mean freedom from glasses?

For many people, yes. With the AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® IOL, many people can read, drive and perform most other tasks without the need for glasses. In fact, in clinical trials, after having the AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® IOL implanted in both eyes, 76% of patients reported never wearing glasses. However, there can be a trade-off – while you may gain clear vision throughout your visual range, you can also experience halos or glare. Most patients find these trade-offs tolerable, but you should still discuss it with your doctor. Learn more about cataract surgery and the AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® IOL and your freedom from glasses.
