Question:
I recently had the ReStor lens put in my left eye and even though my right eye still has a cataract, I can now see perfectly without glasses. Can I just have a regular lens put in the right eye instead of paying for a ReStor?

Answer:
Although most patients choosing to have multifocal lens implants get them in both eyes, there are patients who only have a multifocal lens in one eye. Your eye surgeon is in the best position to advise you on the pros and cons of having these lenses implanted.
