Clinical experience with the AcrySof ReSTOR lens in cataract patients

October 2, 2005

I would like to share my clinical experience with the AcrySof? ReSTOR? intraocular lens (IOL) in patients with cataract. We performed a prospective study of 63 eyes of 32 patients (31 bilateral and 1 unilateral). All surgeries were performed by 1 of 2 surgeons, and second eyes were operated on within 2 weeks of the first eye. The inclusion criteria were senile cataract with corneal astigmatism less than 1.5 diopter (D) and IOL power between 16 and 25.5 D; ocular comorbidity was excluded. Based on these criteria, about 56% of our cataract patients were eligible. Our outcome measures were both refractive status and quality-of-life issues.
