AcrySof® IQ IOL BioOptics Advantage

Improved Functional Vision1

With an aspheric design and unique light-filtration properties, the AcrySof® IQ Monofocal IOL delivers an advanced optical profile that was designed to emulate the natural crystalline lens.


The optical design of the AcrySof® IQ IOL provides1:

  • Excellent clarity
  • Better image quality*
  • Improved functional vision*
With AcrySof® IQ IOLs, patients’ functional vision improved in challenging driving conditions.

AcrySof® IQ IOL Aspheric Design

Spherical aberrations can reduce image quality, especially in low-contrast situations or when the pupil is dilated.5 AcrySof® IQ IOLs feature a unique negative spherical aberration to compensate for the positive aberration of an average cornea, contributing to1,5:

  • Significantly improved clarity (contrast sensitivity)
  • Reduced aberrations

The residual mean ocular spherical aberration of eyes implanted with the AcrySof® IQ IOL is approximately 0.1 μm, which approaches that of a young crystalline lens.6,7 When compared to a spherical IOL control, the aspheric AcrySof® IQ IOL showed a statistically significant reduction in spherical and total higher order aberrations.1

The residual mean ocular spherical aberration of eyes implanted with the AcrySof® IQ IOL is approximately one micron.

Clinical studies suggest that a relatively small amount of positive spherical aberration may be correlated with natural super vision (natural uncorrected visual acuity 20/15 or better).7,8

AcrySof® IQ IOLs deliver a positive residual aberration that more closely approximates that of a natural human lens.

§Residual aberration of the eye equals average corneal spherical aberration (0.27 µm) minus aberration correction of the lens.

ACRYSOF® SINGLE-PIECE MONOFOCAL INTRAOCULAR LENSES IMPORTANT PRODUCT INFORMATION

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

INDICATIONS: AcrySof® single-piece monofocal intraocular lenses (IOLs) include the AcrySof® IQ Aspheric Natural IOL (Model SN60WF), AcrySof® UV-Absorbing Aspheric IOL (Model SA60WF), AcrySof® Natural IOL (Model SN60AT) and AcrySof® IOL (Model SA60AT). Each IOL is indicated for visual correction of aphakia in adult patients following cataract surgery. These IOLs are intended for replacement in the capsular bag.

WARNINGS/PRECAUTIONS: Careful preoperative evaluation and sound clinical judgment should be used by the surgeon to decide the risk/benefit ratio before implanting an IOL in a patient with any of the conditions described in the Directions for Use that accompany each IOL. Caution should be used prior to lens encapsulation to avoid lens decentration or dislocation. Viscoelastic should be removed from the eye at the close of surgery.

Studies have shown that color vision discrimination is not adversely affected in individuals with the AcrySof® Natural IOL (Model SN60AT) 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 at temperatures over 45° C. Use only sterile irrigating solutions to rinse or soak IOLs.

ATTENTION: Refer to the Directions for Use labeling for each IOL for a complete list of indications, warnings and precautions.
