Alcon Vivity Extended Depth of Focus (EDOF) IOL

The Alcon Vivity IOL is typically implanted during cataract surgery, a common procedure to replace the cloudy natural lens of the eye with a clear artificial lens. The choice to use the Vivity IOL will depend on the patient’s individual needs, lifestyle, and the recommendations of their eye care professional.


The suitability of the Alcon Vivity IOL for a particular patient may depend on factors like their eye health, lifestyle, and visual goalThe Alcon Vivity IOL is designed to provide an extended depth of focus, which means it aims to enhance a patient’s range of vision, reducing the dependence on glasses for both near and distance vision. It helps to address presbyopia, a common age-related vision problem that makes it difficult to focus on close objects. 

Alcon Vivity provides extended depth of focus...reducing the dependence on glasses for both near and distance vision.

Unlike some multifocal IOLs that work on diffractive principles, the Alcon Vivity IOL employs non-diffractive technology. This can reduce the potential for visual disturbances such as halos and glare, which can be associated with diffractive multifocal IOLs.  The design of the Vivity IOL is intended to provide a smooth and continuous range of vision. This means that patients may experience less disruption when transitioning between different distances, such as reading and driving. Like many modern IOLs, the Alcon Vivity IOL typically incorporates a blue light-filtering feature to help protect the retina from the potential harmful effects of high-energy blue light.


It’s important to remember that the effectiveness and performance of any intraocular lens, including the Alcon Vivity IOL, can vary from person to person. Patients considering cataract surgery and the implantation of an IOL should have a thorough discussion with their eye care professional to understand the potential benefits and any potential risks associated with the specific lens chosen.
