Alcon announced the availability of AcrySof IQ PanOptix UV intraocular lenses (IOL), AcrySof IQ PanOptix Toric UV IOL, AcrySof IQ Vivity UV IOL and AcrySof IQ Vivity Toric UV IOL as part of the presbyopia-correcting lens portfolio in Canada. These next-generation IOLs provide ultraviolet (UV)-filtering hydrophobic protection for Canadians to help prevent UV damage and prolong vision health after cataract surgery. The new lenses add to the existing AcrySof IQ PanOptix and Vivity IOL portfolios, which currently offer lenses that filter both blue light and ultraviolet light.
"We are very proud to add ultraviolet light-filtering intraocular lenses to our market-leading presbyopia-correcting IOL portfolio," said Brian O'Neal, general manager of Alcon Canada. "We developed these in response to surgeon feedback in Canada and are pleased we can expand this offering to both AcrySof PanOptix and Vivity lenses."
Alcon Advanced Lenses are designed to correct cataracts, presbyopia and astigmatism by providing a continuous range of vision and reducing the need for glasses or contact lenses after cataract surgery. Designed to help Canadians enjoy their daily activities, AcrySof IQ PanOptix IOLs provide exceptional visual performance at meaningful distances – for driving, working at a computer or looking at a smartphone – with increased spectacle independence.
