ReZoom is a progressive lens inside the eye. The ReZoom lens (made by Advanced Medical Optics, Inc.), like the ReSTOR lens (see below), is a non-moving lens implant.
It gives near (1-2 feet), arm’s length (2-3 feet), and distance vision simultaneously because it has three focusing zones. Light entering the eye passes through all three of these zones simultaneously. This means there is no ‘learning curve’ for reading with this lens. Distance and reading vision are available almost immediately.
Some patients may have difficulty with driving at night because of glare from oncoming lights. This can occur with any lens implant but is more likely with implants that focus light in two or more places at once.
Just as progressive spectacle lenses can cause distortion under certain conditions, the ReZoom lens may not give perfect vision in dim light situations. The ReZoom lens gives generally satisfactory arm’s length (eg…desktop computer screen) vision but may not yield perfect vision for reading very small print up-close.
How quickly will my vision become clear with ReZoom?
- Far Away- Immediately
- Mid-Range (2-3 feet)-Slowly improves over time one to several weeks
- Up-Close (1-2 feet)-Slowly improves over time one to several weeks
What are the ReZoom Advantages?
- Excellent results for distance and arm’s length
What are the ReZoom Disadvantages?
- May get halos around lights when driving at night
- May need glasses for some fine print
Who is the Ideal Candidate for ReZoom?
- People who spend more time at the computer rather than reading
- People who drive minimally at night or are not bothered by glare
