What’s an IOL?
IOLstands for intraocular lens – an artificial lens that’s implanted during cataract surgery.
In order to provide his patients with the best vision correction results possible, Dr. Goldberg offers only the best premium IOL — AcrySof ReSTOR. This sophisticated lens implant is a multifocal IOL that allows Dr. Goldberg’s patients to experience improved vision at multiple distances following cataract surgery. In fact, many patients who receive the ReSTOR lens are able to greatly reduce their dependence on corrective eyewear.
Multifocal lenses are designed to replace cataracts and correct presbyopia at the same time. Their goal is to give you a full range of clear vision, near to far, and everywhere in between.
Patients with astigmatism can also experience true performance at all distances with Acrysof IQ ReSTOR Multifocal Toric IOL.
Astigmatism-correcting lenses are for patients with existing corneal astigmatism. These lenses usually give patients quality distance vision with less dependence on glasses. Most patients will still need to wear glasses for tasks such as reading or working at a computer.
Monofocal lenses have one point of focus and can usually give you clear distance vision. While distance vision is improved, most patients still need to wear glasses for certain tasks, such as reading or working at a computer
