New technology implants, such as Acrysof ReSTOR, are designed to provide a full range of vision-near, far and everything in between. Medicare and private insurance provide basic coverage and allow you to pay for the upgrade, if you choose to do so. Based on FDA clinical data, 80% of patients never need glasses again for any activities. Those who do need glasses need them only for very specific tasks. The goal of the ReSTOR lens is to allow you to live a spectacle-free life, to see things near and far without glasses. There is an additional cost for this technology. If it is determined that you are a candidate for Acrysof ReSTOR, we can discuss payment plans that make this option affordable for our patients.
