One of the most advanced cataract surgery technology is the ReSTOR Intraocular Lens. It is a revolutionary new way to potentially leave your glasses behind. ReSTOR not only corrects cataracts, it has been uniquely designed to improve vision at all distances – up close, far away and everything in between – giving cataract patients their best chance ever to live free of glasses. After being certified by Alcon in 2005, Dr. Berry was the first eye surgeon in the entire Burleson/Cleburne area to implant the ReSTOR lens implant.
How does the ReSTOR IOL work?
As we perform daily activities such as reading, watching television or working at the computer, our eyes are constantly focusing on objects at varying distances – up close, far away and everything in-between. The ability to quickly change focus throughout this range of vision is called accomodation. Unfortunately, this ability diminishes as we grow older causing us to become dependent on bifocals or reading glasses. However, the ReSTOR Intraocular lens was designed to "restore" the full range of vision that was lost, reducing the need for glasses. In the FDA study, 80% of patients receiving the ReSTOR lens reported that they never wear glasses for any activities. Unfortunatley, not everyone is a candidate for the ReSTOR IOL and knowing who is and is not a good candidate is extremely important. Drs. Berry and Stewart will conduct a thorough examination of your eyes in order to determine if ReSTOR is a good choice for you.
"I was 52 when I had to start wearing glasses. It just wasn't right for me. Contacts were not the answer either. I went to Dr. Berry and after a comprehensive exam he diagnosed cataracts. In reviewing my options for lens implants, we decided I was a great candidate for the ReSTOR implants. Within a couple of days I could really see the difference. It's wonderful because I don't have to wear glasses for anything, distance or near. It was the best investment I ever made, an unbelievable experience. I have been a nurse for over fifty years and I have never met a doctor like Dr. Berry."

"My cataracts had gotten so bad I had to get my golf buddies to follow my ball because I just couldn't see where it went. My glasses were not helping. I just couldn't see to do most things. Now my eye sight is better than it was when I was twenty. I do not ever have to wear glasses for anything at all, whether driving or reading or whatever. Dr. Berry is the best doctor around and his staff are all great people. I am 110 percent satisfied with the surgery and the experience. I was expecting improvement, but not as good as it turned out to be. The whole experience was great."
"My vision was getting more and more blurry, with or without my glasses. I knew I was ready for cataract surgery. Dr. Berry and his staff were very helpful in preparing me for surgery, which ended up being very easy and without any pain. I chose the ReSTOR lens because I didn't want to wear glasses at all. I'm so thankful for Dr. Berry and having good vision again. Yea no glasses! I highly recommend Dr. Berry and his staff for cataract surgery."
