Introducing The Vivity™ Extended Vision Intraocular Lens
Specialty Eye Institute is pleased to introduce the Alcon Vivity™ Extended Vision Intraocular Lens. The Vivity Lens is the latest advancement in IOL technology providing cataract patients with clear distance vision, intermediate vision, and functional near vision. As a practice, we’re always working toward giving our patients the best possible visual outcomes and we are the first in Michigan and among the first in the country to offer this new technology.
The Vivity lens is the first-of-its-kind and uses a non-diffractive technology called X-Wave™. Alcon’s proprietary non-diffractive technology uses all available light to create a continuous, extended range of vision to reduce a patient’s dependence on glasses. This technology reduces visual disturbances like halos, starbursts and glare reported with other multifocal and extended depth-of-focus lenses.
“The Vivity Lens gives the vision quality of a 48-year-old who does not wear glasses for distance. This smooth depth-of-focus lens design gives excellent distance vision, intermediate vision and functional near vision with no halos or glare that you would get from a multifocal lens,” says Paul H. Ernest, M.D., Founder and Cataract Specialist at Specialty Eye Institute.
