Although each implant recipient will have a unique healing time, your doctor will be able to give you an idea of what to expect as far as visual recovery goes. Most ReSTOR patients are able to see clearly the very next day after surgery! Driving can usually be resumed within a couple days, with gradual vision improvement over the next week.
We do not offer a guarantee with any of our procedures as individual results may differ. However, we can give a person examples and statistics of past ReSTOR patients and their experiences. Some patients may experience 20/20 vision, 20/40 vision, and varying degrees between near, far and middle distances. Very few patients will require glasses for any activity.
The best way to find out if you one is a good candidate for the ReSTOR procedure is to schedule a thorough eye evaluation with one of the Cherry Creek Eye Physicians and Surgeons, P.C. physicians. Generally, presbyopia patients who wish to become less dependent on reading glasses, or who show cataract development may qualify. Patients who require good night vision, airline pilots, and patients with ongoing glare problems should not have this procedure.
Yes – Although the ReSTOR IOL is relatively new, it has been time tested. The material used to make the ReSTOR Lens has been utilized in millions of cataract surgeries over the years.
Because cataract surgery involves the removal of the eye’s natural lens, there is no going back. However, this lens like other implant is interchangeable – if refractive error changes over time, a new implant can be inserted in place to improve accommodation.
The ability to change distances and retain clear vision is very appealing to presbyopia and cataract patients. Using apodized diffractive technology, the ReSTOR lens is able to focus near and far images perfectly without glasses by using light refraction.
