AcrySof® IQ Aspheric IOL – Visual Performance When It’s Needed Most

The Aspheric Design of the AcrySof® IQ Aspheric IOL Results in Improved Clarity and Image Quality

The Reassurance of Excellent Image Quality

Proven to deliver excellent visual performance in even the most challenging situations, the AcrySof® IQ Aspheric IOL provides the confidence of:

  • Reduced spherical and total order aberrations1
  • Improved functional vision in all conditions1
  • Increased mesopic contrast sensitivity1
  • Over 50 million implants worldwide

Aspheric Design See More

After analyzing more than 700 corneas,2 the AcrySof® IQ Aspheric IOL was engineered with a negative spherical aberration to compensate for the positive aberration of an average cornea. This aspheric design results in dramatically improved clarity and image quality with reduced aberrations.

Spherical IOL

Aspheric Design

Spherical aberration occurs when light rays are over-refracted at the periphery of a spherical IOL.

Aspheric IOL

An aspheric IOL correctly aligns the light rays to adjust for possible corneal spherical aberrations.

Image Quality2 See More

The AcrySof® IQ Aspheric IOL delivers a mean ocular spherical aberration of approximately 0.1 μ. When compared to a spherical IOL control, the AcrySof® IQ Aspheric IOL showed a statistically significant reduction in spherical and total higher order aberrations.1

Nighttime Driving2 See More

Driving at night is a common cause of anxiety among cataract patients. Adding obstacles such as fog, glare, and high speeds represents an even greater risk. Under similar conditions when measured against a control lens, the AcrySof® IQ Aspheric IOL:

  • Performed functionally better in 34 of 36 conditions
  • Improved functional vision under real-world challenges
  • Allowed patients more time to take appropriate action

A subset of patients underwent testing in a validated night driving simulator. Patients were tested monocularly under conditions that simulated city and rural settings under normal, glare, and fog conditions.

Additional Stopping Distance with AcrySof® IQ Aspheric IOL

AcrySof® IQ Aspheric IOL patients had an average increase of 130+ feet (vs the control lens) in which to stop after identifying a warning sign.

Contrast Sensitivity See More

The AcrySof® IQ Aspheric IOL is engineered to excel in low-light conditions, improving contrast sensitivity and functional vision for patients when they need it most.1

CAUTION:
Federal (USA) law restricts this device to the sale by or on the order of a physician.

INDICATIONS:
The AcrySof® IQ posterior chamber intraocular lens is intended for the replacement of the human lens to achieve visual correction of aphakia in adult patients following cataract surgery. This lens is intended for placement in the capsular bag.

WARNING / PRECAUTION:
Careful preoperative evaluation and sound clinical judgment should be used by the surgeon to decide the risk/benefit ratio before implanting a lens in a patient with any of the conditions described in the Directions for Use labeling. Caution should be used prior to lens encapsulation to avoid lens decentrations or dislocations.

Studies have shown that color vision discrimination is not adversely affected in individuals with the AcrySof® Natural IOL and normal color vision. The effect on vision of the AcrySof® Natural IOL in subjects with hereditary color vision defects and acquired color vision defects secondary to ocular disease (e.g., glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, chronic uveitis, and other retinal or optic nerve diseases) has not been studied. Do not resterilize; do not store over 45°C; use only sterile irrigating solutions such as BSS® or BSS PLUS® Sterile Intraocular Irrigating Solutions.

ATTENTION:
Reference the Directions for Use labeling for a complete listing of indications, warnings and precautions.
