I have bilateral cataracts with numerous sx & will be having them done in Dec. The MD, knowing I was on Medicare & wanted not to wear glasses after surgery offered me a deal ($500 q eye) on the above captioned implants as the company had overcharged him & owed him a pair. He is a very nice man so please, I am not impugning him in any way.
My question is in reference to the product. I can't seem to get quality info on pros/cons for this vs. the "normal" Medicare model. This is what I would like to know. I don't want a bunch of problems w/my eyes after surgery or w/the implants. Sooner wear glasses than that.
Lots of stuff on the Internet was scary & seemed inflated.
Please advise & thank you.
Search all the comments posted on this forum. I had these Restor in June and have ghosting and blurring vision. I am not happy with them.This I find is normal for the restor lens. So beware and do your homework.
Your best bet for a problem-free outcome is aspheric monofocal lenses. If you want to minimize your dependence on glasses, then have your lenses set for blended vision (distance vision in dominant eye, intermediate in non-dominant eye). If all goes as planned, you'll only need glasses for prolonged reading or seeing small print. Check out the patient education video at www tecnisiol com for more information about what aspheric monofocal lenses can do for you.
There is no additional fee for AMO's Tecnis monofocal lens (which Dr. Hagan favors). My surgeon only used Alcon lenses, so I got Alcon's aspheric monofocal lens (the AcrySof IQ)--with excellent results. Bausch & Lomb also makes an aspheric monofocal lens. Any of the three would be a good choice (IMO).
