If you ever imagined a non-diffractive lens that extends your depth of focus, mitigating presbyopia, then you would have visualized the Alcon AcrySof® IQ Vivity® lens (Vivity). This premium intraocular lens (IOL) is now available at all of our offices.
The lens replacement option allows for clear distance and intermediate vision after cataract surgery.
The Alcon AcrySof® IQ Vivity® lens uses X-Wave™ non-diffractive technology that allows you to see with all available light because it does not split light like a multifocal lens does. An added advantage of this is that it enables you to drive at night with minimal to no glare thanks to the extended range of vision.
Unlike other IOLs where the light is split into several focal points, resulting in vision that may have glare and starbursts around light, the Vivity lens minimizes this effect.
In addition, the X-Wave™ technology also provides protection from UV rays.
The intraocular lens is used to focus images clearly onto the retina with the Alcon AcrySof® IQ Vivity® lens enabling better distance and intermediate vision. This may be the ideal solution for you if:
Vivity IOL provides patients with sharper vision.
Unfortunately, you may not be an ideal candidate for the Alcon AcrySof® IQ Vivity® lens if you suffer from chronic eye infections or have any autoimmune conditions that may adversely affect recovery after cataract surgery.
It is therefore advisable to consult one of our Beach Eye Medical Group specialists in Huntington Beach, Irvine, or Long Beach to find out whether the Vivity IOL is an ideal solution for you.
No medical procedure is without risk. Should you be an ideal candidate for the Alcon AcrySof® IQ Vivity® lens implant, then we will discuss this with you during your consultation at one of our Orange County offices or Los Angeles County offices.
It is therefore important to ensure that a detailed medical history is shared with your specialist and that all pre, and post-surgery instructions are followed.
