Apodized Diffractive Optics for a Full Range of Vision

In the healthy eye, the lens flexes to focus on objects at varying distances. The AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® IOL was designed to provide a complete range of vision independent of the ciliary body muscle. To achieve this, the AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® IOL combines the functions of both apodized diffractive and refractive regions.

Apodized Diffractive Optics for a Full Range of Vision In the solid eye, the lens flexes to concentrate on articles at different separations. The AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® IOL was intended to give a complete scope of vision free of the ciliary body muscle. To accomplish this, the AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® IOL consolidates the elements of both apodized diffractive and refractive districts. Apodization is the steady diminishment or mixing of diffractive step statures. The AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® IOL highlights protected apodized diffractive innovation that circulates the proper measure of light to close and far off central focuses, paying little heed to the lighting circumstance. The apodized diffractive optics are likewise intended to enhance picture quality and minimize visual unsettling influences—a change over customary multifocal technologies.1 Some visual impacts might be normal, incorporating radiances around lights in evening time conditions.

Apodized Diffractive

The apodized diffractive optics are found inside of the focal 3.6 mm optic zone of the lens. This zone includes 9 concentric strides of slowly diminishing (1.3–0.2 microns) step statures that dispense vitality in view of lighting conditions and action, making a full scope of value vision—close to inaccessible.
