The AcrySof® ReSTOR® is an FDA-approved multifocal intraocular lens (IOL)– an artificial replacement lens that can help most people with cataracts improve their vision and image quality.
Available at our Huntington Beach office, the AcrySof® ReSTOR® multifocal lens goes beyond a monofocal lens, which is limited to one focal point. AcrySof® ReSTOR® has been designed using patented apodized diffractive and refractive technologies. The unique lens technology distributes light to multiple focal points, thus minimizing visual disturbances. The result is an increased range of vision and a decreased dependency on corrective lenses.
In addition, AcrySof® ReSTOR® has a special optical feature that mitigates the halo effect that occurs with multifocal lenses–a detail that differentiates it from other multifocal lenses featured in our Orange County office.
Multifocal intraocular lenses have revolutionized the treatment of cataracts, but they may not be for everybody.

At Beach Eye in Orange County, we specialize in intraocular lens replacements. Our cataract and artificial lens specialists can examine your eyes at our Huntington Beach practice and determine whether AcrySof® ReSTOR® is an appropriate option for you.
AcrySof® ReSTOR® lenses may greatly benefit those who lead an active lifestyle and want to lessen the inconvenience of wearing corrective lenses. In clinical studies, 80% of AcrySof® ReSTOR® recipients stated that they did not need glasses after their lens replacement. (In comparison, only about 10% of those receiving monofocal lens replacements reported being glasses-free.)
AcrySof® ReSTOR® lens replacement is considered a safe procedure and complications are rare. However, lens implantation carries similar risks associated cataract surgery.
