Eye World takes a look at the pros and cons of the lenses. D., Nashville, agreed, “The Re STOR is definitely the best near vision lens on the planet.” However, Dr.
According to the Acry Sof® IQ Re STOR® IOL clinical studies, three out of four patients implanted in both eyes with the Acry Sof® IQ Re STOR® reported never wearing glasses following cataract surgery.

And now, with the addition of proven aspheric technology, the Acry Sof® IQ Re STOR® IOL takes the advancements one step further, for a lens with enhanced image quality and clarity.
A big advantage of multifocal lenses, said Stephen G. D., Houston, is that the Re STOR lens (Alcon, Fort Worth, Texas) has the best near vision of any of the lenses. Slade said, “The disadvantage [of multifocal lenses] is that some patients, not very many, but some have problems with the quality of vision, either glare or halos or they describe waxy vision or things like that.” Paul J. D., clinical instructor of ophthalmology, Jules Stein Eye Institute, University of California at Los Angeles, said of the two multifocals, his preferred lens is the Re STOR Aspheric because it tends to be the most effective at eliminating the need for glasses for distance and near.
