Cataract Removal: The AcrySof IQ ReSTOR Way

My mother has cataract in both eyes. This eye condition usually occurs in older patients. However, such eye problem may also affect younger patients.

A couple of weeks ago, my mother underwent eye check-up, not for her cataract, but for the floater she has been complaining for days. Her ophthalmologist advised her not to be concerned about the floater as it can simply go down, anytime. Plus, it is innocuous. But he recommended removal of her cataract as this eye condition worsens my mom’s visions.

The recommended procedure requires small incision in the affected eye to melt the clouded lens of the said eye. The surgeon will then replace the removed lens with AcrySof IQ ReSTOR lens.

That cataract removal procedure seems simple. But it is not easy on the pocket. Each lens cost PHP80k ($1800+). Then again, after putting a hole in my mom’s pocket, her ophthalmologist assured that she would get a clear vision and that she would no longer need to wear reading glasses.

In the meantime, my mother has to bear with wearing prescription eyeglasses while we are still trying to figure out where to get such a big amount. Ugh!
