Clareon® Vivity Specialty

Extended Vision Intraocular Lens

The Clareon® Vivity® IOL by Alcon is one of the many excellent IOL options available here at Oregon Trail Eye Center. 

What is an Clareon® Vivity™ Intraocular Lens?
The Clareon® Vivity® intraocular lenses by Alcon were released in early 2021 and are among the very latest lenses available.  They are well suited for the patient who desire a functioning near vision (reading, knitting), excellent mid-range vision (working on computer, shaving, applying makeup) and an excellent mono-focal-like distance vision (watching the kids play in the backyard). 

While this lens is not a multifocal IOL, it uses a new Wavefront-Shaping technology and feature two smooth surface transition elements that work to seamlessly stretch and shift incoming light in such a way as to allow excellent and uninterrupted vision at multiple depths and distances. The first and most elevated surface of the lenses helps extend the focal range, while a second transition surface element with a slight curvature allows your eyes to make use of all available light.

There is still a chance patients may still need glasses for distance, intermediate, and/or near vision. Full benefits from this lens are achieved when the Clareon® Vivity® Extended Vision IOL is implanted in both eyes.
