    ReSTOR Implantable Lens = No More Reading Glasses


    San Antonio, TX

    Recently, the FDA approved the long-anticipated ReSTOR lens manufactured by Alcon Surgical, one of the leading optics manufacturers in the United States for 50 years.

    As with Crystalens, Refractive Lensectomy addresses the underlying problem with presbyopia (the need for reading glasses) by replacing the existing crystalline lens with the multifocal ReSTOR. Unlike accommodative lens, the ReSTOR does not depend on contraction of the ciliary muscle to move the lens to create a range of vision. It is made of AcrySof, a material that has been implanted 21 million times since the early 1990s as part of another IOL.

    Instead, the ReSTOR has a central 3.6-mm diffractive region that facilitates both near and distance vision. It gradually blends into the outer (refractive) portion of the optic through a controlled 12-step height reduction called "apodization". In normal lighting conditions, the apodized diffractive portion of the ReSTOR lens sends optimal light to both near and distance focal points, providing a full range of quality vision. In dimly lit conditions the refractive portion sends greater light energy to the distant focal point for enhanced distance vision.

    Amazingly, these "step heights" are smaller than a human hair or a red blood cell. For example, the thickness of a human hair is equal to 60 microns, and a red blood cell is equal to seven microns.

    The FDA trial results showed 80 percent of ReSTOR patients "never" needed glasses following surgery. The ReSTOR provided excellent near and distance vision - and very good intermediate vision - compared with conventional monofocal intraocular lens (IOLs). Previously, cataract patients received a monofocal - or single focus - lens that required some type of glasses.

    In an independent study in which ReSTOR was compared to the Array TM IOL and monofocal IOL in terms of reading performance (whether they could read paragraphs of decreasing size). Four of five ReSTOR patients were able to read small type at 20/16. Only one in 7 Array patients was able to read small type at 20/16. And none of the multifocal patients were able to read small type at 20/16.

    Most importantly, 94 percent of patients who received the ReSTOR lens were so satisfied with their new vision they would have the procedure again.
