- AcroSof IQ ReSTOR
- Crystalens HD
- Tecnis Multifocal Lenses
For patients with an active lifestyle who also spend time at the computer or enjoy reading, the ReSTOR Lens may be the best solution as it corrects for multiple distances to accommodate your activities and lifestyle.
The ReSTOR Lens uses “apodized diffractive” technology, which functions like two lenses in one, allowing for near, intermediate and distance vision correction.
In clinical trials, the ReSTOR Lens completely eliminated the need for corrective eyewear in over 80% of patients who received the implants in both eyes. 94% of patients involved in the clinical trials reported they would elect to have the procedure again.
Unlike a standard lens replacement, Crystalens can be used for cataracts and presbyopia, as it improves vision up close, intermediate as well as distance, allowing patients to read a book, work on the computer and drive a car.
Crystalens is the first FDA approved “accommodating” LifeStyle Lens, meaning the lens automatically moves using the internal ciliary muscle of the eye, allowing patients to focus naturally at a range of distances.
In clinical trials conducted by the FDA, patients who underwent a LifeStyle Lens procedure with the Crystalens HD reported a variety of benefits.
• More than twice as many patients who chose the Crystalens enjoyed better vision at every distance than those who chose a standard lens with their cataract procedure.
• Most patients report excellent vision even 7 years after their Crystalens procedures
• Over 200,000 procedures have been performed internationally to date

The Tecnis lens is the only wavefront-designed lens with FDA-approved claims for improved functional vision in low-light environments. The lens is designed to improve vision at all distances in a variety of environments, even low-light conditions.
How does it work?
