No More Glasses in the OR With the ReSTOR IOL!

I work in a very busy outpatient surgery center.  We have over 20 ophthalmologists performing thousands of cataract surgeries yearly.  Several months ago, one of our OR nurses, Linda, approached me.  She was sick and tired of wearing bifocals to drive, work on the computer, chart notes, and eat.  After speaking to many of my patients and their new abilities to function glasses free, Linda decided to pursue her options.  I told her to make an appointment at my office so that I could examine her and give her a recomendation.

It ends up that Linda was moderately farsighted, she needed glasses for all visual tasks.  She also had some small cataracts that were affecting her night driving.  After some more discussion, we decided that cataract surgery with the implantation of the ReSTOR IOL would give Linda the best chance of reducing her need for spectacles.

Linda had her surgery last month, and is now 20/20 both near and far without the need for glasses.  Needless to say, she is thrilled.  In fact today she told me she is bringing a "jealous" friend to my office next week to see what her options are.
