Re: Restor Cataract Lenses not working
Sorry to hear about your vision after your cataract operation. The Restor lens is a multifocal lens implant that has concentric rings throughout the lens to allow you to see both far and close up. This means that it can cause visual symptoms such as those you describe. There are a couple of reasons why you might be having difficulty with your vision.
Firstly, the lens is "sized" before the surgery and it is pretty tricky for any surgeon to get the strength just right and leave you without any residual glasses prescription. If this is the case, once your vision stabilises, it may be possible to have your surgeon or another surgeon address and residual presciption using laser.
Secondly, your symptoms may be related to the multifocal lens design. If this is the case then you may be best to allow your brain to adapt to the new image and your awareness of the problems will diminish over time. If you need to have the other eye done you could ask your surgeon about some of the newer lens designs that provide distance, mid and close vision without concentric rings. Read up about the Oculentis Mplus, which is big in Europe.
Best to discuss all the options with your surgeon.
