The Vivity intraocular lens represents a breakthrough in IOL design. Unlike multifocal IOLs, the Vivity Extended Range of Vision IOL does not divide light energy. With patented X-wave technology most of the light is focused at distance allowing for very high-quality vision like a traditional IOL. However a small area in the center of the lens extends the depth of focus and allows for intermediate and reading vision also. The standard monofocal lenses used routinely in cataract surgery provide excellent visual quality, but only allow for reduced dependency on glasses for either distance or near objects, but not both. The new Vivity IOL is the first and only X-wave IOL which provides reduced dependency on glasses for all distances — distance, intermediate (computer distance) and near and provides improved quality of night vision over traditional multifocal IOLs.
Dr. Kandavel, Dr. Colvard, and Dr. Dredge were the 1st doctors to implant the lens in California. They have the most experience of any physician in Los Angeles with this new technology. They also have performed their own independent study on the lens and have published those results for others to learn from their experience.
Colvard-Kandavel Eye Center offers personalized eye care services for patients with routine and complex eye conditions.
