Imagine driving with more confidence. Or golfing without losing sight of the ball. From reading to playing tennis to playing bridge, you can experience clear vision at near, intermediate and far distances with the help of multifocal lenses. When you opt for cataract surgery with a multifocal lens, such as the AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® family of lenses, you’re opting for the opportunity for freedom from both cataracts and presbyopia, a condition that makes it difficult to focus on objects that are close to you, and reduce your dependence on spectacles.
Designed to deliver excellent visual quality and acuity over a range of distances, AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® IOLs could give you more opportunity to see all distances without having to wear glasses. If you desire to be free from glasses most of the time for both distance and near vision (16-20 in/40-50 cm). Multifocal lenses can help you reduce your dependency on glasses. In fact, four out of five AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® IOL recipients reported never wearing glasses after having the lens implanted in both eyes.1
It’s important to note that while Medicare or private health insurance covers a portion of the costs of surgery and lenses for qualifying patients, some out-of-pocket expenses are associated with multifocal IOLs. Even so, more than 93 percent of patients who received AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® IOLs said they’d choose the same lens again.
