I had RESTOR put into left eye. $7000. My money, around 2007/8 please read: https://us.search.yahoo.com/yhs/search?hspart=iry&hsimp=yhs-estor+lens // Dr. Barry Wolstan ruined my left eye forever. his contact number is 310-543-4546.
RESTOR LENS put in, then I had to enlarge my text to 24 point bold on laptop. B4 : 8pt light, 6 point light type face. He said how great it was! a pretense. Tried to talk me into getting r eye done for more $$$$. I did not fall for that. He sent me to Dr. ( Head of Jules Stein, UCLA) had it taken out. Now when I am in my AZ home - sometimes dry air hurts my eye, also dust. I must wear an eye patch or keep left eye closed then get up and finish house work. Im a Graphic Designer - who used to b happy with my near sightedness. Making fine lines, reading 5-6 pt type etc. Also, same happened to good v-ball player, she Had Both eyes done by Wolstan. She would go for the ball and her depth perception was screwed up. She had to give up v-ball. Depth perception off by bout a foot.

Nov 29th, i also had RESTORE LENS placed in my right eye for reading - with plans for a distance lens in my right eye. The day after surgery, I got really dizzy with room spinning, passed out, vomited - went to ER the next day with no clear answers as to what was going on. I was in bed for 8 days - taking meclazine and Valium prescribed by ER doctor. Doped up, I finally was able to ride to Opthamolgist office - was told my condition had nothing to do with the lense. My vision test was 20/20 - so I was pleased but baffled as to what was going on with my dizziness. Gradually, my vision has become blurry and surrounded by cobwebs in my visual field. My eye is sensitive to light, sore and painful, using / reading computer makes me dizzy. My eye feels strange - like a rock is in my eye socket. I regret having the surgery and am wondering if my body is rejecting the lense. I really don’t know what to do next, especially since dizziness (although impoved) has become such an overwhelming problem. I am wondering if the lense could be removed and perhaps, I could go back to wearing contact lense? Any ideas or input would be much appreciated.

I'm so very sorry that happened to you that is why I'm sooooo frightened of having this done
