Presbyopia correcting intraocular lenses (IOLs) – whether trifocals or extended depth of focus (EDOF) lenses – traditionally induce the risk of an increased incidence of dysphotopsia such as glare and halo compared to monofocal IOLs.1
The AcrySof IQ Vivity IOL is a first-of-its-kind, non-diffractive presbyopia-correcting lens that provides good distance, good intermediate and functional near vision, while providing a visual disturbance profile comparable to a monofocal IOL.2-4 This means that patients, who previously may not have been suitable for a presbyopia correcting IOL, can now experience the convenience of an extended range of vision.2-4
