FDA approves Alcon’s new IOL to treat presbyopia, astigmatism
“The AcrySof IQ ReSTOR +3.0D Multifocal Toric IOL is an important addition to our market-leading IOL portfolio, and broadens our offering of presbyopia- and astigmatism-correcting lenses to meet the different visual needs of patients,” Alcon Region President for North America Sergio Duplan said. “We are committed to delivering ongoing innovation that enables surgeons to provide the best possible outcome for their patients.”
The IOL is already available in the European Union, Australia, Canada and other countries in Central and South America and Asia.
“Correcting presbyopia and astigmatism, with one lens, at the time of cataract surgery is a great benefit to patients and can improve patient satisfaction,” Associated Eye Care Medical Director Dr. Stephen Lane said. “The introduction of this advanced technology IOL gives us an additional treatment option to help reduce dependence on spectacles for patients with astigmatism.”
