This means that the series of tiny steps in that center area work together to focus light for near.
The refractive region of the Acry Sof Re STOR™ IOL bends light as it passes through the lens to a focal point on the retina.
After cataract surgery you can live a life without the hassles of glasses and contact lenses.
If you have been suffering from cataracts or poor vision and cataract surgery is an option, you should be aware of a new technology that can help you reduce dependence on glasses and contacts after cataract surgery.
Crystalens is an accommodating intraocular lens that, unlike a standard IOL, can treat both a person’s cataracts and presbyopiaï¿½loss of near and intermediate vision.
You probably noticed in your forties that you started to lose some of your up-close vision and had to start wearing reading glasses.
This outer ring of the Acry Sof™ Re STOR™ IOL surrounds the apodized diffractive region and is dedicated to focusing light for distance vision.
The Acry Sof Re STOR™ Intraocular Lens has been shown in a clinical study to provide good near, intermediate and distance vision with increased independence from glasses.
It does so by recreating accommodation similar to your eye’s natural lens.
An IOL will assume the function of the natural lens and will be undetectable.
Today, IOLs are available as monofocal lenses (correcting vision for one distance), accommodating lenses (correcting for near, far, and intermediate vision), toric lenses (astigmatism correcting), and multifocal lenses (correcting for near, far, and intermediate vision).
The patients of Westlake Eye Specialists now have the option to see at far, near and even intermediate distances after cataract surgery.
This enables our cataract patients to be able read the newspaper, play golf and other activities without the hassles of glasses.
