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 aberration occurs when light rays are over-refracted at the periphery of a spherical 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 (in a Rural Setting in Fog Conditions at 55 mph)
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
