ReStor IOLs are not more prone to retinal detchments (RD)s than other IOLs. There are problems but they have to do with night vision, need for glasses, and unwanted light reflexes (dysphotopsia). Without increased risk factors the chance of a RD after uncomplicated cataract/IOL surgery is only one in about 3000-5000. But once you have RD in one eye if you have an IOL in the other eye the change of Rd may be as high as 5-10% so watch the other eye carefully. Also let your blood relatives know about your problem as it puts them at higher risk also.
