A new option for cataract patients is now available at Specialty Eye Institute!
The Tecnis Symfony Intraocular Lens provides an extended depth of focus for cataract patients. The extended depth of focus allows post-surgery patients to experience a wider range of vision, including near, intermediate, and far distances.
During cataract surgery, the natural lens of the eye is removed, and an artificial lens, called an intraocular lens, or IOL, is inserted into the eye. The IOL most commonly used in cataract surgery is a monofocal lens, which only allows the person to see at a distance, with closer objects being out of focus. In contrast, the Symfony lens was specifically developed with features to improve both the range and quality of vision.
The recent FDA approval of the Tecnis Symfony includes the Tecnis Symfony Toric IOL, a version of the lens for people with astigmatism.
