What are the difference between AcrySof Restor IOL and other IOL technologies?
It is estimated that more than 45 million cataract surgery implants were performed globally to date. Most surgeons prefer to use lenses made by AcrySof, a family of intraocular lens (IOLs) products that proved to be very stable and provide long-term positive treatment results.
At Boothe Eye Care we perform successful cataract surgeries drawing on decades of experience and taking advantages of new technologies such as the AcrySof Restor IOL. After a successful cataract surgery is completed and the patient heals, he/she will see near, far, and between without eyeglasses or bifocals.
More than 80% of patients who had the AcrySof Restor IOL placed in both eyes by Boothe Eye Care & Laser Center enjoy clear vision at all distances. 94% of the patients with AcrySof Restor IOL implants no longer require eyeglasses or contact lenses. Nearly 94% of our patients indicated that they would have the lenses implanted again, if needed.
What makes AcrySof Restor IOL so unique?
Very often intraocular lenses are made from either hard plastic or silicone, which is not a convenient application. AcrySof Restor IOL uses a soft acryl. This material allows surgeons to better implant the lens for and provides a greater deal of comfort for patients. AcrySof Restor IOL technology utilizes small incisions, resulting in a quick recovery period and clearer vision.
Patients with cataracts or presbyopia may have both eyes operated on in the same procedure. This convenience offers patients the option of a shortened recovery time; additionally patients are no longer required to wear spectacles post operation.
Are you a suitable candidate for AcrySof Restor IOL?
Virtually every patient who suffers from cataracts may be a suitable candidate for AcrySof Restor IOL. After a thorough examination at Boothe Eye Care, we will be able to determine if AcrySof Restor IOL is appropriate for you. Patients with uncontrolled diabetes or chronic infections may have to undergo an additional treatment, after which we will be able to offer them to do the procedure.
