AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® Toric IOL

Visual Performance at All Distances for Cataract Patients

AcrySof IQ ReSTOR Toric IOLOmni Eye Services of Atlanta will has embraced premium lens technology, and the ReSTOR Toric is a great option for cataract patients who have large amounts of astigmatism and want independence from glasses.

“We are very excited about the AcrySof IQ RESTOR Multifocal Toric now available for our patients,” said Paul Ajamian, O,D., Center Director for Omni Eye Services. “We have many happy patients that have enjoyed a full range of vision with the standard AcrySof IQ RESTOR Multifocal. Now we are happy to be able to offer our cataract patients who have significant amounts of astigmatism a lens that clears their vision from cataracts, provides them with a full range of vision, and corrects their astigmatism.”

The vision simulator below shows how the Multifocal Toric IOL works. left-click on the slide bar at the bottom of the image and slowly slide your mouse from left to right, to see the animation.

More than three million cataract surgeries are performed each year and of those patients more than 50 percent have astigmatism. Astigmatism is a variation in the shape of the curvature of the cornea and if left untreated, can cause blurred vision at all distances after cataract surgery.

Presbyopia is a condition that most people experience around the age of 40. It involves the gradual loss of the eye’s natural lens ability to change its shape, which allows it to change its focus from distance to near.

Cataracts are a gradual clouding of the eye’s natural lens. In order to clear vision after cataract form, they must be surgically removed from the eye. Vision is then restored by the insertion of an intraocular lens.

“Prior to approval, there was an unmet need for the AcrySof IQ RESTOR Multifocal TORIC intraocular lens,” said Lawrence Woodard, M.D., Medical Director at Omni Eye Services. “We want our patients to know that Omni was among the first to offer this exciting new lens technology to our patients. We applaud their unanimous decision for approval, and I’m excited to be using this lens.”

Which lens you choose will affect how you see for the rest of your life so it is important that you fully understand your options. Your surgeon or a member of our staff will be happy to discuss these options with you and the associated costs to upgrade to one of our premium IOLs.
