Don't do it! go with regular lens Period

Suffering  4 years of revisits speculation and promise of getting better but it never happened!

Horrible decision to have them removed. downright scared to death!

We discussed this with the best in the country   and came away with the decision to remove them
Weighting the complications it is a  Quality of life issue!

We have our life back and - the frustration is over the result was excellent

The irony  is its all about the product  hype & greedy it is very  sad.

This discussion is related to Restor Lens IOLs.

Please tell me the name of your surgeon?  I'm about to set up an appt. to have an explant done.  I'm scared to death!  Since your surgery was a success, I would like to contact your doctor.  Did he have to place your new lens outside the capsule?

Thank You so much for sharing - happy for you.  I"m trying to make that horrible decision right now.  Please see my question posted under username "eyecry".  Who did your surgery?  How were you able to discuss your problem with the best in the country.  I've had several second opinions & I have no way of knowing who is the best.  I'm leaning toward my original surgeon as the other docs said it looks like he did a good job. He was originally chosen because of his years of experience.
Please reply - Hoping to get my life back also.
