Eye Physicians of Central Florida ophthalmologist David B. Auerbach, D.O. was the first surgeon in Central Florida to offer cataract surgery with the new AcrySof® ReSTOR® intraocular lens (IOL). This breakthrough technology enhances your vision and may help you to see clearly at all distances without bifocals or reading glasses. Until recently, most patients undergoing cataract surgery received artificial lenses that provided excellent distance vision. However, they still needed reading glasses to see near objects.
AcrySof® ReSTOR® -- A Safe and Effective Alternative
- The FDA-approved AcrySof® ReSTOR® lens is inserted using the same minimally invasive, outpatient cataract surgical procedure that has been performed for decades.
- In a clinical study, 80% of patients who received the AcrySof® ReSTOR® reported that since the surgery, they never wear glasses for any activities. They can read a book, work on the computer, drive a car and play golf or tennis without the hassle of glasses. By comparison, only 8% of patients who received the traditional monofocal IOL eliminated their need for glasses.
- In fact, 84.3% of patients achieved 20/25 vision or better for distance and 20/32 or better for near.
- Patients in the study were so pleased with their vision that 94% said they would have the AcrySof® ReSTOR® implanted again if given the choice.
