Vivior AG IOLs

Intraocular lenses

Metabolic changes in the eye lead over time to the loss of transparency, called cataract, causing impairment or loss of vision. The standard treatment consists of implanting an artificial intraocular lens (IOL). Most IOLs fitted today are fixed monofocal lenses matched to see clearly at a certain distance (refractive target). Other types are also available, such as multifocal IOLs, which allow the patient to see clearly at different distances.
In 2015, 20 million cataract surgeries were performed worldwide; for 2020, 32 million are projected worldwide (WHO). The premium IOL sector is the fastest growing sector. In Western Europe & North America approx. 1.5 million laser eye surgery procedures are performed per year. Both premium IOLs and laser eye surgery are predominantly self-pay markets.
Vivior educates patients on their visual needs as well as on premium IOLs and their benefits, leading to an increased confidence in choosing a premium IOL. Health care professionals feel more confident about choosing a premium IOL based on objective data that provide an optimal and personalized solution for each patient.
Vivior Laser correction

Laser correction

In addition, there has been an increase in presbyopia (impaired near-sighted- ness) due to the aging of the eye. More and more of these are treated with laser eye surgery (e.g. LASIK: laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis). For this, the surgeon will need to decide on the refractive target, i.e. the optimal viewing distan- ce for the patient.
Vivior provides a personalized, detailed and accurate account of their visual needs based on their personal lifestyle, leading to the highest level of visual performance and comfort resulting in high customer satisfaction.
