Restor vs. Rezoom vs. Crystalens-Help!
February 26, 2009
What is an ophthalmologist to do? It seems every IOL manufacturer and every surgeon swears by one over the other, regardless of what the data shows, which seems to favor Restor. Personally, I don’t think I would want Restor or Rezoom in my eye- the idea of dealing with halos and hoping my brain can seamlessly prefer one image over the other seems too risky. But Crystalens’s data looks pretty poor when it comes to close reading- I don’t care what those Crystalens surgeons say. I am looking forward to the NuLens from Israel which promises almost 8(!) diopters of accomodation- sign me up for that! What do others think? How do you handle dissatisfied patients- do you return their money? Do you refer them elsewhere if the IOL has to be replaced?
