Cataract surgery with ReSTOR® can potentially eliminate a patient's needs for glasses or bifocals.
The Acrysof® ReSTOR® lens provides patients peace of mind to do normal daily activities without relying on their glasses. Simple tasks such as driving and reading the newspaper become more enjoyable without have to go find your reading glasses. The ReSTOR® lens changes the focus at various distances which allows patients to see at the various distances.
