At Texas Eye Physicians, PA, we also offer ReSTOR, Toric , Symfony , and PanOptix lens for the treatment of cataract and presbyopia for a spectacle free lifestyle. To reduce the patient's need for glasses, an intraocular lens matching the patient's prescription is inserted into the eye during cataract surgery ( see our section on cataract surgery). During this procedure, we have the ability to implant lenses, like the Acrysoft Toric IOL, than can correct corneal astigmatism that before required glasses or toric contact lens. As a result, after surgery many patients will be less dependent on glasses for driving.
As an alternative, we can also place a bifocal ALCON ReSTOR IOL, or Technis Symfony lens to allow the patient to see far and near. The three bifocal types of Restor lens comes in the distance centered +2.50 that allows monofocal like distance vision and intermediate vision. The +3 and soon to be discontinued +4 ReStor have a near center and distance outer ring that allows better near vision than the +2.50 ReStor. These lens also comes as a toric to correct astigmatism.
The only FDA approved trifocal PanOptix lens allows the patient to see distance for driving, intermediate distance like for computer and read a book without glasses. This lens also comes as toric for the correction of astigmatism.
