A quick explanation of apodization.

The AcrySof® ReSTOR® multifocal intraocular lens (IOL) is designed to help patients see in multiple ranges of vision from close to distance following cataract surgery. An innovative optical technology called “apodization” makes the AcrySof ReSTOR lens uniquely effective, especially when placed in both eyes. A similar technology is used in microscopes and telescopes. Some patients experience visual disturbances. Additionally, some side effects with the AcrySof ReSTOR IOL may make it more difficult to see in low lighting conditions; therefore, increased care should be taken when driving at night.
