In a clinical study, cataract patients were asked about their vision with the AcrySof® IQ Vivity™ Lens 6 months after surgery:

Icon-94%

94% reported good or very good vision far away without glasses in bright light.2,*,†

Icon-92%@

92% reported good or very good vision at arm’s length without glasses in bright light.2,*,†

Icon-78%@

78% reported less bothersome glare.2

*Results from a prospective, randomized, parallel group, subject-and-assessor-masked, multisite trial of 107 subjects bilaterally implanted with the AcrySof® IQ Vivity™ IOL and 113 with the AcrySof® IQ IOL with 6 months’ follow-up. Patient-reported outcomes for spectacle independence were evaluated subjectively through IOLSAT questionnaire.

Patients were asked, “How well did you see without wearing eyeglasses in the past 7 days?” Patients who reported not using glasses at least some of the time were asked to rate their quality of vision n = 96.

Important Product Information

 

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

DESCRIPTION: The AcrySof® IQ Vivity™ Extended Vision IOL is a type of IOL used to focus images clearly onto the back of your eye (retina) to allow clear vision after the cataract removal. The AcrySof® IQ Vivity™ Extended Vision IOL provides clear distance vision (e.g., for watching children playing in the backyard). In addition, the AcrySof® IQ Vivity™ Extended Vision IOL allows for better intermediate (working on a computer, applying makeup or shaving) and some near (reading, knitting) vision compared to what a monofocal IOL would provide. The AcrySof® IQ Vivity™ IOL is not a multifocal IOL, as it uses a new Wavefront-Shaping technology to provide the broader range of vision. There is a chance you may still need glasses for distance, intermediate, and/or near vision. You will get the full benefit of the AcrySof® IQ Vivity™ Extended Vision IOL when it is implanted in both eyes. Please discuss with your eye doctor whether this is the right IOL for you.

POTENTIAL SIDE EFFECTS: There are some side effects that can be associated with the design of IOLs that provide a broader range of vision, which may be worse than with a monofocal IOL. These side effects include visual disturbances such as glare, rings around lights, starbursts, and a decrease in ability to distinguish objects from their background, especially in dim lighting. These side effects may make it more difficult to see in some situations. Contrast sensitivity, an important measure of visual function, is the ability to distinguish objects from their background, especially in dim lighting. In the AcrySof® IQ Vivity™ IOL clinical study, contrast sensitivity in dim lighting was reduced in patients who received the AcrySof® IQ Vivity™ compared to those who received the Monofocal IOL. A toric IOL corrects astigmatism only when it is placed in the correct position in the eye. Some patients may have some level of astigmatism remaining after IOL placement, especially if they had a lot of astigmatism before surgery. There is also a possibility that the toric IOL could be placed incorrectly or could move within the eye. As with any toric IOL that provides an extended range of vision, if the lens is not positioned correctly in your eye, or if the amount of astigmatism to be corrected is calculated incorrectly, you may experience poor vision, you may need to wear glasses to see clearly at all distances, or you may need additional surgery to reposition or replace the IOL.

ATTENTION: As with any surgery, there are risks involved. Prior to surgery, ask your eye doctor to provide you with the Patient Information Brochure for the proposed AcrySof® IQ Vivity™ Extended Vision IOL to be implanted. This document will further inform you of the risks and benefits associated with this IOL. Discuss any questions about possible risks and benefits with your eye doctor, as well as your medical condition and any eye disease you may have.
