ACRYSOF IQ VIVITY EXTENDED VISION IOL
VIVITY® IOL EXCEPTIONAL CLARITY
The Acrysof® IQ VIVITY® Extended Vision IOL is the most technologically advanced intraocular lens developed by Alcon. This newest IOL lens brings unparalleled clarity for post-cataract nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism treatment. VIVITY® IOL allows for greater clarity for near and intermediate vision as well as distance vision. Other IOL’s focus on distance vision.
VIVITY® IOL TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCEMENT
IOLs are clear lenses that are surgically implanted on top of the eye’s natural lens and lessens the need for glasses and contact lenses. The VIVITY® IOL lens exceeds monofocal lenses for clearer distance, as well as improves intermediate and near vision.
VIVITY® IOL utilizes newly developed X-WAVE technology that expands and uses light rays that permit an extended range of vision for near, intermediate and distance. Multifocals and trifocals use rings that split the light that works to improve distance vision.
VIVITY® IOL Clinical Studies
- 87% of patients reported they do not need glasses for intermediate vision (arms-length) compared to 57% with a standard lens
- 47% of patients reported not needing reading glasses, compared to 16% using standard options
VIVITY® IOL VISION ENHANCEMENTS
The Acrysof® IQ Vivity® Extended Vision IOL can be used to enhance vision for people with cataracts, astigmatism, nearsightedness, farsightedness, and hyperopia.
CATARACT TREATMENT & VIVITY® IOL
For patients receiving cataract treatment, VIVITY® IOL can reduce dependence from glasses and contacts providing clearer, enhanced vision at a wider range of distances. Cataract surgery lifts the cloudiness from your vision but does not improve refractive problems. VIVITY® IOL can help with refractive problems to further improve your sight particularly near and intermediate vision which is not improved by other IOLs.
Cataract surgery is one of the safest and common procedures performed in the U.S according to the National Institute of Health.
Speak with your eye surgeon to see if you are a candidate and if VIVITY® IOL can help you
QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
How is VIVITY® IOL better than other IOLs?
VIVITY® IOL helps patients who hope for better near and intermediate vision rather than just distance vision.
When should I notice vision improvements?
Most patients notice an improvement within the first couple of days.
What is an intraocular lens (IOL)?
An intraocular lens is an artificial lens which replace your natural lens when it is removed during cataract surgery. The lens is permanent and does not need further replacement or maintenance. You should still see an ophthalmologist for regular eye appointments.
