AcrySof® IQ Family of IOLs

Important Product Information

CAUTION: Restricted by law to sale by or on the order of a physician.

DESCRIPTION: The AcrySof® IQ Family of Lenses are artificial lenses implanted in the eye of adult patients following cataract surgery. The AcrySof® IQ IOLs are designed to allow for clear distance vision. However, you will likely still need glasses for reading and for distance vision particularly ifyou already have astigmatism. The AcrySof® IQ Toric IOLs are designed to correct pre-existing corneal astigmatism, which is the inability of the eye to focus clearly at any distance because of difference curvatures on the cornea, and provide distance vision. The AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® and AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Trifocal Family of IOLs are types of multifocal lenses (sometimes called “presbyopia-correcting IOLs”) designed to allow for clear distance, intermediate, and near vision with the potential to be more independent of the need to use glasses for daily tasks. The AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® and AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Trifocal Family includes the AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® multifocal Toric and AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Trifocal Toric IOLs which correct for astigmatism as well as cataracts. The AcrySof® IQ Vivity™ Extended Vision IOLs provide clear distance vision, and better intermediate and some near vision compared to a monofocal IOL.

WARNINGS/PRECAUTIONS: You may experience and need to contact your eye doctor immediately if you have any of the following symptoms after cataract surgery: itching, redness, watering of your eye, sensitivity to light. The safety and effectiveness of these IOLs have not been established in patients with eye conditions, such as an increase in eye pressure (glaucoma) or complications of diabetes in the eye (diabetic retinopathy). As with any surgical procedure, there are risks involved. These risks may include but are not limited to infection, damage to the lining of the cornea, the retinal layer which lines the inside back wall of your eye may become separated from the tissue next to it (retinal detachment), inflammation or swelling inside or outside the eye, damage to the iris (the colored diaphragm around the pupil), or an increase in eye pressure that cannot be controlled by medicine and secondary surgical procedure. There is a possibility that the IOL may be placed incorrectly or could move within the eye. This may result in less improvement or a reduction in vision, or it may cause visual symptoms. AcrySof® IQ Toric IOLs, AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® multifocal Toric IOLs, and AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Trifocal Toric IOLs correct astigmatism only when placed in the correct position in the eye. There is a possibility that these Toric IOLs could be placed incorrectly or could move within the eye. This may result in less improvement or a reduction in vision because your astigmatism has not been fully corrected, or it may cause visual symptoms. With the AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR®, AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Trifocal IOLs, and AcrySof® IQ Vivity™ Extended Vision IOLs there may be a loss of sharpness of your vision that may become worse in dim light or in foggy conditions. There is also a possibility that you may have some visual effects such as rings or circles (halos) around lights at night. You may also have trouble seeing street signs due to bright lights or glare from oncoming headlights.

ATTENTION: As with any surgical procedure, there are risks involved. Prior to surgery, ask your eye doctor to provide you with the AcrySof® IQ Patient Information Brochure for the lens to be implanted. This Document which will inform you of the risks and benefits associated with the IOL. Discuss any questions about possible risks and benefits associated with your eye doctor.
