Poughkeepsie, NY (PRWEB) February 15, 2006
Satish Modi, M.D., F.R.C.S. ( C ) a leading Cataract and LASIK surgeon in Poughkeepsie, New York who performed some of the first cataract surgery using the ReSTOR® Multifocal Lens Implant in New York, reports that cataract surgery and lens implant surgery using the ReSTOR® Lens Implant, has produced excellent clinical results and patient satisfaction. “After having now used the ReSTOR® Lens for more than 9 months, our patients are telling us that their goal of being able to see at far and near distances without having to depend on glasses or corrective lenses after their cataract surgery has been achieved,” said Dr. Modi.
The ReSTOR® Lens works by using a sophisticated lens design that incorporates apodized diffractive optics in order to create a multifocal lens effect allowing patients to have distance and near vision and thus minimizing or eliminating the need for bifocals or reading glasses after cataract surgery.
“Patients are extremely happy with the results of their cataract surgery with ReSTOR® in that it gives them the ability to see at a range of distances and in most cases, without the need for bifocals or reading glasses for most ordinary activities. Having this convenience after cataract surgery is a real benefit for my patients,” said Dr. Modi.
Dr. Modi, one of the first cataract surgeons to implant ReSTOR® in New York, has implanted more than 150 ReSTOR® since its F.D.A. approval. Of those, over 95% are now able to read, drive and see objects at intermediate distances, without needing glasses or bifocals.
