The AcrySof® IQ Vivity® IOL is a presbyopia-correcting non-diffractive extended vision intraocular lens that provides cataract patients with a continuous range of vision after cataract surgery.
Innovative X-WAVE™ technology separates the AcrySof® IQ Vivity® lens from other intraocular lenses currently on the market by providing an extended range of vision and providing patients a reduced need for glasses. Presbyopia is a common, age-related vision condition in which people have difficulty focusing on things up close. It involves the gradual loss of the eye’s ability to focus on close objects, such as smartphones, computers, books and menus.
The AcrySof® IQ Vivity® IOL Improves Both Quality And Range Of Vision
With the AcrySof® IQ Vivity® IOL, you can expect a continuous range of vision for distant and intermediate tasks, while also providing you with functional near vision. Functional near vision reduces your need for glasses when performing up-close tasks such as using your smartphone or reading a menu in adequate light, compared to a basic monofocal intraocular lens which doesn’t address presbyopia.
The technology in the AcrySof® IQ Vivity® IOL supports your vision in low light through its extended range of vision and reduction of monofocal-like visual disturbances like halos and glare.
The need for reading glasses when performing up-close tasks, such as using your smartphone or reading a menu in adequate light, is reduced compared to basic monofocal intraocular lenses because of the near functional vision of AcrySof® IQ Vivity®.

AcrySof® IQ Vivity® IOL Can Reduce the Need for Glasses
AcrySof® IQ Vivity® lOLs make it easier to see intermediate and far distance tasks while providing functional near vision for tasks such as using your smartphone or reading in natural light, reducing your need for glasses. You may find that detailed tasks like reading fine print, are improved with wearing glasses or by adjusting the font size adjustments or zoom functions on your smart phones or devices.
What to Expect
For many patients, lasting vision and the confidence their sight will not undergo major changes following cataract surgery is just as important as removing their cataracts.
Ask your eye surgeon how to care for your eyes after surgery, when you can return to your normal activities, and what to watch for (including signs that you should contact your surgeon). The amount of time it takes to adjust to new lenses after cataract surgery can vary by individual. You will have a follow-up appointment a day or two after your surgery.
It is unlikely your vision will change significantly in the years following your cataract surgery. Have your vision and eye health tested:
- At least every 2 years if you are under 65
- At least annually if you are 65 and over
- If you notice any changes in your vision
As with any surgery, be sure to speak with your eye doctor about all of the risks associated with cataract surgery.
The AcrySof® IQ Vivity® IOL is a First-Of-Its-Kind Lens
Innovative X-WAVE™ technology separates the AcrySof® IQ Vivity® IOL lens from other intraocular lenses currently on the market by providing an extended range of vision and providing patients a reduced need for glasses. The unique non-diffractive design means that light is not split to create multiple focal points, allowing patients to enjoy an extended range IOL with a halo and glare profile comparable to a monofocal IOL.
