We now offer ReSTOR® lens at our treatment centers in Virginia. The long-awaited Acrysof ReSTOR lens is a revolutionary innovation in foldable intraocular lens (IOL) technology.
The distinguishing characteristic of ReSTOR lens is that it may allow recipients to focus images at near, intermediate and far distances without the aid of spectacles. Using apodized diffractive optics, ReSTOR lens diffuses light to various parts of the lens depending on the size of the pupil. Unlike its predecessors, ReSTOR lens operates independently of muscle activity, producing more predictable and more reliable results. The manufacturer of ReSTOR lens reports that 80 percent of ReSTOR lens recipients no longer require spectacles for any activity.
The ReSTOR lens does exactly what its name implies: It can restore the ability of the eye to focus on objects at multiple distances after the natural lens has been removed. Patients who are interested in learning more about ReSTOR lens are invited to contact our offices in Chesapeake, Virginia Beach or Portsmouth for more information.
