A friend of mine recently had the Restor Lens implant. She told me she didn't have cataracts; her
eye dr. used this to correct her vision. My eye doctor says that she must have had cataracts and
that this surgery is not perfected. He says that the vision is not sharp. He is talking to me
about having the Lasik (monovision) I wear the hard gas permeable lens now. I have been wearing them for over 40 years when they first came out. I appreciate all your advise and help. Thanks.
Some people, believe it or not, pay to have their lens removed even though it doesn't have a cataract and an intraocular implant put in the eye. This is called a clear lens extraction. They take the risks and pay the money to make their glasses thinner, reduce their dependence on glasses.
Any operation involves risks, multifocal implants like the Restor lens implant not infrequently end up with an uphappy or dissatified patient. There are many unhappy postings on the two eye care forums.
LASIK is a much safer operation if you are a good candidate. That can be determined by seeing an ophtalmologist that does refractive surgery.
