Vivity Lens: The New Intraocular Lens

June 3, 2022

INTRODUCTION
A cataract is a condition in which cloudy areas are formed in the natural lens. The development of a cataract in the eye obstructs the passage of light that causes difficulty in vision. It can be treated by replacing the cloudy lens with an intraocular lens through surgery.  If someone is suffering from a cataract and looking for independence from glasses, there are various intraocular lenses which can be used during cataract surgery which will correct the existing refractive errors including astigmatism and presbyopia.

WHAT IS VIVITY LENS?
Vivity lens is the latest generation of lenses from Alcon. It uses special X wave non diffractive technology which stretches and shifts light rather than splitting it, thereby giving excellent far, intermediate and near vision. X-wave technology protects the eyes from harmful UV radiations of sunlight and digital devices. The traditional intraocular lens splits the light into many focal points. This may result in blurry vision, double vision, glare like visual disturbances after the surgery. If you choose Vivity lenses, you have improved ability to see excellent near and distance vision without the side effects of glare and haloes associated with conventional trifocal lenses. The reports show that The Vivity lens is also successful in patients suffering from glaucoma and macular disorders.

CAN VIVITY LENS CORRECT ASTIGMATISM?
Astigmatism is a type of refractive error in which the eye cannot make focus correctly on the retina. Yes, it can be treated at the time of cataract surgery. Specially designed lenses, such as toric Vivity lenses, are used to correct astigmatism during cataract surgery.

WHAT DO THE SAFETY STUDIES FOR VIVITY LENS CONCLUDE?
The Vivity lens got FDA approval in 2020 after completing two successful clinical trials. The Vivity lens has been used globally and reported great clinical results and patient satisfaction.

ARE GLASSES REQUIRED AFTER HAVING THE VIVITY LENS?
