Watch As an IOL Is Placed...
AcrySof® IQ Toric
When the cornea is shaped more like a football than a sphere, vision at both near and far distances can be impaired. This condition, known as astigmatism, requires a special IOL to successfully correct. The AcrySof IQ Toric lens from industry-leading vision tech company Alcon is designed to treat astigmatism and reduce the need for glasses and contact lenses. The AcrySof Toric lens is less likely to become repositioned compared to other toric IOLs.
AcrySof IQ Vivity
The AcrySof IQ Vivity Extended Vision IOL is an innovative new lens from Alcon. The Vivity IOL is a great choice for patients with nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism looking to reduce their dependence on glasses after cataract surgery. This type of lens uses a groundbreaking new technology called X-WAVE that shifts light rays instead of splitting them like multifocal IOLs. This gives patients an even and continuous range of vision at several distances.
AcrySof IQ PanOptix
The PanOptix is the first trifocal lens approved in the United States and provides patients with unparalleled focus at all distances. Similar to multifocal IOLs, trifocal IOLs can alternate their refractive powers for near and far distance, with an additional setting for intermediate focus. While patients who receive multifocal and monofocal IOLs may still be dependant on glasses and contacts, trifocal IOLs provide clear vision at most ranges, further reducing the need for corrective lenses.
AcrySof IQ PanOptix Toric
The AcrySof IQ PanOptix Toric IOL extends Alcon’s trifocal PanOptix technology to a wider range of candidates. This toric IOL treats cataracts in patients with astigmatism who wish to address their near, intermediate, and distance vision. This is the only IOL that delivers a patient-preferred intermediate focal point at 60 cm, helping you get back to your favorite activities such as reading, playing sports, and driving.
Crystalens is an intraocular lens designed to treat cataracts in patients with or without presbyopia. Crystalens is known as an "accommodating IOL," meaning it uses the muscles that cause the natural lens to change its shape. The lens contains hinges on each side, allowing it to move slightly as you shift your vision and focus on different distances. Studies have shown that Crystalens patients see significantly better at all distances than patients with standard IOLs and are at low risk for experiencing complications.
