For those suffering from presbyopia and cataracts, there is a new Intraocular Lens (IOL) on the market called the Tecnis Symfony. The Symfony is the first of its kind that’s able to treat both cataracts and presbyopia, while improving a full range of vision. Unlike most intraocular lenses, the Symfony IOL exhibits low instance of the effects of halos and glare around lights. Instead, patients are left with clear, crisp vision. Even if a patient has cataracts, they get the full range of their vision back: intermediate, distant and near vision. The Symfony IOL allows for a higher quality of life and a lessened dependence on reading glasses.
How Does The Tecnis Symfony IOL Work?
The Symfony IOL is ideal for patients who are already candidates for receiving cataract surgery. During cataract surgery, the Symfony IOL is implanted in the eye. The Symfony IOL is used to replace the cataract affected lens in the eye, leaving in its path clearer vision. The Symfony IOL doesn’t affect the way that cataract surgery is performed. Instead, it only changes the way that you see after. Most patients are able to see more clearly almost immediately after surgery, and full results are achieved thereafter.
Why Should You Choose The Tecnis Symfony?
A big advantage of the Symfony IOL is most patients who receive it find that they no longer need their reading glasses to see things. Standard lenses used during cataract surgery will not change the need for glasses, and in many cases do not correct presbyopia. Another advantage over standard lenses is not having to worry about pesky halos and glare surrounding lights. The Symfony IOL improves vision for patients at all distances, which standard lenses cannot do.
How Do I Get The Tecnis Symfony?
Since the Symfony IOL lens is new technology to the United States, it can be difficult to find practices at which it is offered. Not to worry, because The Harman Eye Clinic is now offering the brand new Symfony presbyopia-correcting IOL. Contact us for more information about cataract surgery consultations.
The Symfony IOL is a revolutionary new lens, but not everyone is a good candidate for receiving this new technology. It’s important to talk to your doctor to see if cataract surgery is the best solution for you. For those that suffer from both cataracts and presbyopia, the Tecnis Symfony IOL lens could be the answer to regaining clear vision.
