Data presented are representative of each participating surgeon’s own experience and do not arise from formal clinical studies.

AcrySof IQ Vivity answers thecall for continuous range of vision,with an aspheric monofocal visualdisturbance profileCataract surgery is one of the most frequentlyperformed procedures worldwide, involving theremoval of the opacified natural crystalline lens andsubsequent replacement with an intraocular lens(IOL).1 Traditional IOLs are monofocal and typicallyfocused on distance vision.2,3 However, becausepresbyopia is the most common refractive disorder inpeople over 40 years of age,4 there is a need for IOLsthat offer improved near and intermediate vision.Presbyopia-correcting IOLs have been developed with

were intended to provide extended range of visionwithout the typical visual disturbances associatedwith diffractive trifocal and bifocal technologies.5However, many EDoF IOLs are still associated withphotic phenomena and reduced contrast sensitivity;2and so, despite the numerous IOL options available tosurgeons and patients, distinct unmet needs remain.4AcrySof IQ Vivity IOL is the First and Only ExtendedDepth of Focus (EDoF) IOL with the Wavefront-ShapingX-WAVE technology. It provides patients with acontinuous extended range of vision from distanceto functional near, thereby reducing their need forspectacles. X-WAVE technology stretches and shiftsthe wavefront rather than splitting it. This means itcan utilize almost all of the light, like a monofocal, andhence has an aspheric monofocal visual disturbanceprofile, while the uniform light intensity distributiongives “more natural vision” (see Figure 1).7–11Global perspectives on thereal-world use of AcrySof IQ Vivity :Helping to translate clinicaldata to practiceRegulatory approval of IOLs in various countries oftenrequires a research study (ie, clinical trial), in whichparticipants are prospectively assigned to one or moreinterventions to evaluate safety and performanceof the IOL. These results are usually compared witha concurrent control group and, collectively, thisevidence forms the basis for supporting the safety andeffectiveness of the device. Although these controlledstudies provide a useful baseline for understandingthe safety and performance of an IOL, clinical trials cansometimes be narrow in scope due to their practicalchallenges and carefully controlled target populations.Hence, case series utilizing real-world data cancomplement this evidence by providing informationon a wider patient population that cannot be obtained

Furthermore, patient satisfaction, asobserved by the surgeons in their routine clinicalpractice, was reported to be high, with no visualdisturbances or night vision problems reported in themajority of patients. Spectacle independence has alsobeen reported to be high (see Figure 6), although itwas noted that it cannot be guaranteed; reading booksor newspapers, especially in dim light, or activitiesinvolving delicate hand–eye coordination may requirespectacle use in some patients (see Figure 6).

Personal clinical experienceof using AcrySof IQ Vivity that was discussed duringthe meeting reflected the results of a registrationstudy carried out in the United States (US), whichdemonstrated excellent distance, intermediate, andfunctional near visual acuities for AcrySof IQ Vivity (see Figure 3).8,10 AcrySof IQ Vivity was alsodescribed as the default lens for many, even in thepresence of eye pathologies (see Figure 4).AcrySof IQ Vivity is a “forgiving”lens that can tolerate residualrefractive errorAcrySof IQ Vivity was described as a “forgiving”lens because patients could tolerate some residualrefractive error, which encouraged many of the groupto feel confident in adopting a mini-monovisionapproach with patients. Additionally, it was arguedthat the “forgiving” attributes of AcrySof IQ Vivity could benefit post-LASIK patients, in whom IOLcalculations may be difficult.Vivity provides excellentdistance visual acuity, withextended range of visionto intermediate and functionalnear, combined with anaspheric monofocal visualdisturbance profile.Dr. Francesco Carones, Carones Ophthalmology Center, Milan, Italy.

Using AcrySof IQ Vivity in post-LASIK eyesPreliminary clinical experience withAcrySof IQ Vivity in post-LASIKeyes shows early promisePost-LASIK patients are typically more challenging totreat, given the difficulty of IOL power calculationsinherent in the post-LASIK eye due to alterations inthe cornea.13 Furthermore, these patients have highexpectations of treatment and are keen to protecttheir investment in LASIK by retaining or restoringfreedom from spectacle use.13,14 Despite this,promising results have been observed in the limitednumber of post-LASIK patients who have receivedAcrySof IQ Vivity (see Figure 8).Although these early results suggest thatAcrySof IQ Vivity is an appropriate lens for myopicand hyperopic post-LASIK eyes, success is likely todepend on the degree of corneal irregularities inthe post-LASIK eye. Further studies are requiredFigure 8: Preliminary visual acuity data atdistance, intermediate and near in post-LASIKeyes implanted with AcrySof IQ Vivity to determine the types of corneal irregularitiesthat AcrySof IQ Vivity can tolerate, including safethresholds for coma and other higher order aberrations.Using AcrySof IQ Vivity in patients withglaucomaInitial clinical experience inpatients with preperimetric andmild glaucomaBoth glaucoma and cataract are common causes ofblindness worldwide, and frequently coexist in theelderly population.15 Therefore, it was of particularinterest to understand how AcrySof IQ Vivity performs in patients with glaucoma. Initial experiencefrom 2 patient cases shows both cases achieved goodvisual outcomes at all distances (see Figure 9).Another consideration in glaucoma patients iscontrast sensitivity, which has been suggested in thistarget population to be linked to subjective complaintsFigure 9: Visual acuity data fromindividual patients with preperimetricor mild glaucoma (n 2)Binocular uncorrected VAsMean VA (logMAR)-0.16Myopic(n 3*)Myopic(n 1†)-0.12–0.08-0.08-0.040.00Hyperopic(n 1*)0.00 0.000.00 0.000.00 0.000.04All eyes werewithin 0.50 Dof target arTarget MRSE in non-dominant eye was approximately -0.5 D.*Dr. Carones’s patient cases, with VA measured at distance,intermediate (60 cm), and near (45 cm); †Prof. Braga-Mele’s case study,with VA measured at distance, intermediate (60 cm), and near (40 cm).D, diopters; LASIK, laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis; logMAR,logarithm of the minimum angle of resolution; MRSE, manifestrefraction spherical equivalent; VA, visual acuity.Mean VA (logMAR)-0.20Binocular uncorrected .080.100.12Preperimetric(n 1*)0.00 0.00Mild(n 1†)0.00 0.000.050.10DistanceIntermediateNear*Dr. Gundersen’s case study, with VA measured at distance, intermediate(100 cm), and near (50 cm); †Prof. Kohnen’s case study, with VA measuredat distance, intermediate (66 cm), and near (40 cm).LogMAR, logarithm of the minimum angle of resolution; VA, visual acuity.

of blurred vision.16 In the US registration study,reported outcomes in AcrySof IQ Vivity patients(albeit without ocular comorbidities) were similar orbetter than monofocal controls for hazy and blurredvision, despite observed reductions in monocularmesopic contrast sensitivity with increasing spatialfrequency.*8,9 It would be important to study thisfurther and understand if glaucoma patients reportsimilar results.On reflection of the available data, the group agreedthat AcrySof IQ Vivity could be considered in patientswith preperimetric and mild glaucoma. However, furtherresearch is required to determine the performance ofAcrySof IQ Vivity in individuals with glaucoma.*The proportion of patients who reported that they did not experiencehazy vision was 88.6% and 86.5% for AcrySof IQ Vivity and monofocal,respectively (95% CI -7.2, 11.3). Significantly more AcrySof IQ Vivity patients (90.6%) than monofocal patients (80.2%) reported that they didnot experience blurred vision (95% CI 0.6, 20.1).9SummaryAcrySof IQ Vivity IOL is the First and OnlyExtended Depth of Focus (EDoF) IOL with theWavefront-Shaping X-WAVE technology, whichprovides a continuous extended range of vision fromdistance to functional near, reduces patients’ relianceon spectacles, and has an aspheric monofocal visualdisturbance profile. Early clinical experience suggeststhat AcrySof IQ Vivity is a versatile technology thatcan be used in pristine eyes, as well as those withcertain ocular pathologies. As clinical experienceand confidence in the IOL grows, surgeons maygradually expand their use of AcrySof IQ Vivity toother patient groups. In the meantime, Alcon remainscommitted to ongoing research to help guide howbest to use AcrySof IQ Vivity in practice.Based on initial observations of these real-lifepatient cases:A mini-monovisionapproach usingVivity resulted in excellentdistance to near visual acuity,with no visual disturbances ornight vision problems reportedin the majority of patients.Mini-monovision: AcrySof IQ Vivity was considered a great choice formini-monovision by advisorsPost-LASIK: Many surgeons have extendedthe application of AcrySof IQ Vivity topost-LASIK eyesGlaucoma: AcrySof IQ Vivity may beconsidered for patients with preperimetricor mild glaucomaDr. Kjell Gunnar Gundersen, Ifocus Øyeklinikk AS, Haugesund, Norway.References1.2.Davis G.
