Augusta

Pre-op AssessmentODOS
Grade32
BSCVA20/6020/50
Astigmatism0.75 D0.75 D
Myopia/Hyperopia+3.25 D+3.0 D

Augusta wears glasses to correct her myopia and astigmatism. She plays tennis three days a week, and she drives across state lines once or twice a month to visit her children and their families. She complains that her glasses are always falling off, especially when she’s jumping up and down at her grandkids’ soccer and volleyball games. Other than her cataracts, Augusta has no history of ocular pathology.

Based on her biometry and lifestyle, is Ms. Gasparro a better candidate for AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® +3.0 D IOLs, AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® +2.5 D IOLs or monofocal IOLs?

Thanks for Playing!

AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® Multifocal IOL

CAUTION:
Federal (USA) law restricts this device to the sale by or on the order of a physician.

INDICATIONS:
The AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® Posterior Chamber Intraocular Lens (IOL) is intended for primary implantation for the visual correction of aphakia secondary to removal of a cataractous lens in adult patients with and without presbyopia, who desire near, intermediate and distance vision with increased spectacle independence. The lens is intended to be placed in the capsular bag.

WARNING / PRECAUTION:
Careful preoperative evaluation and sound clinical judgment should be used by the surgeon to decide the risk/benefit ratio before implanting a lens in a patient with any of the conditions described in the Directions for Use labeling. Physicians should target emmetropia, and ensure that IOL centration is achieved. Care should be taken to remove viscoelastic from the eye at the close of surgery.

Some patients may experience visual disturbances and/or discomfort due to multifocality, especially under dim light conditions. Clinical studies with the AcrySof® ReSTOR® lens indicated that posterior capsule opacification (PCO), when present, developed earlier into clinically significant PCO. Prior to surgery, physicians should provide prospective patients with a copy of the Patient Information Brochure available from Alcon for this product informing them of possible risks and benefits associated with the AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® IOLs.

Studies have shown that color vision discrimination is not adversely affected in individuals with the AcrySof® Natural IOL and normal color vision. The effect on vision of the AcrySof® Natural IOL in subjects with hereditary color vision defects and acquired color vision defects secondary to ocular disease (e.g., glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, chronic uveitis, and other retinal or optic nerve diseases) has not been studied. Do not resterilize; do not store over 45° C; use only sterile irrigating solutions such as BSS® or BSS PLUS® Sterile Intraocular Irrigating Solutions.

ATTENTION:
Reference the Directions for Use labeling for a complete listing of indications, warnings and precautions.
