What to Expect After Cataract Surgery?

Here are some important things to know about cataract surgery
with the AcrySof® ReSTOR® lens:

  • It is important that you do not evaluate your vision until you have had the procedure done in both eyes. It is very difficult for your brain to accept the difference in vision until both eyes adjust.
  • Optimal results are achieved by having the AcrySof ® ReSTOR® IOL in both eyes. However, clinical studies also showed positive results with the AcrySof® ReSTOR® lens in one eye.
    For certain levels of astigmatism, it may be necessary to have another procedure to treat this condition following or during surgery.
  • Your near vision may be approximately 12 inches closer than you remember before surgery. You may have to bring objects closer to read comfortably. The range of your vision may increase after your second lens is implanted, and as time progresses.
  • It is important to remember that your eyes are accustomed to relying on glasses and you may be tempted to use them after surgery. Rather than using glasses, work with your new vision and allow your eyes to adapt.
  • Your vision in the intermediate range (16 inches –7 feet) should be good and functional, but may not be as sharp in the early postoperative days as it will become over the next few months. You may find that over time and after the second lens is implanted, your intermediate vision range will improve. In the meantime, you may need to make minor adjustments, such as moving closer to the computer or bringing objects in closer.
  • Clinical results showed that without glasses, the majority of patients achieved distance vision of 20/25 after surgery.
  • You may initially see some glare and halos around lights early after surgery. This usually improves over the next few months. 5% of the AcrySof® ReSTOR® IOL patients in the clinical trial experienced severe glare and halos. Your eye care physician will discuss the risks and benefits of cataract surgery with the AcrySof® ReSTOR® lens.
