The Tecnis Symfony® Intraocular Lens is a multifocal IOL that provide continuous high-quality vision following cataract surgery. The purpose is to improve visual acuity at any distance, simultaneously decreasing the effects of presbyopia to help people focus on near objects. This release also includes a version of the IOL lens for people with astigmatism. The lens is an improvement on the traditional monofocal IOLs being used, which are designed to improve distance vision at the expense of seeing things closer up.
The Tecnis Symfony® IOL was FDA-approved in 2016 and has been making waves in the ophthalmology world since. What makes this IOL so special? It’s the first IOL designed specifically with presbyopia in mind.
If you are have been dealing with presbyopia for some time, you know how hard it can be. Now imagine what its like to have presbyopia and cataracts. This is a recipe for some serious vision problems. Fortunately, the Symfony® IOL corrects both.
