ReSTOR® +2.5D Multifocal Toric IOL with ACTIVEFOCUS™: A New Option for Cataract Patients with Astigmatism and Presbyopia
We are very excited to announce a new intraocular lens option for cataract surgery patients who suffer from astigmatism and presbyopia: the Acrysof IQ ReSTOR® +2.5 Multifocal Toric IOL with ACTIVEFOCUS™. Recently approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the Acrysof IQ ReSTOR® +2.5 Multifocal Toric IOL with ACTIVEFOCUS™ can improve vision for a wider range of distances and correct for astigmatism at the same time, helping patients reduce their need for glasses and other types of corrective eyewear after cataract surgery.
This latest advancement in custom cataract lens options is one of only three FDA-approved multifocal lens options available here in the U.S. that can also correct astigmatism. Last year, the ReSTOR® Toric IOL was granted FDA approval, giving patients a wider range of choices. Our very own medical director and cataract surgeon here at The Eye Institute of Utah, Dr. Robert J. Cionni, served as a principal investigator for the clinical trials of the ReSTOR® Multifocal Toric IOL, and he is delighted to have played a significant part in helping to obtain FDA approval for this advanced IOL. Dr. Cionni believes these new options will ultimately allow more patients to reduce dependence on glasses and contacts after cataract surgery than ever before.
In addition to cataract patients, the Acrysof IQ ReSTOR® +2.5 Multifocal Toric IOL with ACTIVEFOCUS™ and the ReSTOR® Multifocal Toric IOL can also be utilized for individuals who choose to undergo refractive lens exchange procedures. Until now, patients suffering from both astigmatism and presbyopia have had very limited options when it came to lens implants that could help them see more clearly at multiple distances. This new IOL changes the game and takes quality vision correction even further into the future!
