Enhance Your Vision After Cataract Surgery With the Tecnis Symfony™ IOL

By the age of 80, over half of Americans will have experienced a cataract, the buildup of proteins in your eye’s natural lens that hardens and clouds your vision. Laser cataract surgery replaces this compromised natural lens with a new, artificial intraocular lens (IOL) to renew your sight and provide a clearer distance vision.

Our ophthalmologists at LaserVue Eye Center are dedicated to going beyond just restoring your vision. The Premium Lifestyle Lenses we offer our Bay Area patients utilize the latest multifocal lens technologies to enhance your vision at all distances. The Tecnis Symfony is one such revolutionary IOL that provides continuous high-quality vision.

Tecnis Symfony™ IOL Advanced Design and Technology 

The Tecnis Symfony IOL

The Tecnis Symfony lens offers a unique combination of a diffractive pattern design and achromatic technology to correct vision loss due to cataracts and eliminate visual glares, halos, and contrast issues that many patients experience with traditional IOLs after cataract surgery. 

Tecnis Symfony Diffractive Pattern Design

Unlike standard multifocal IOLs that split your focal points into separate rings, the Symfony intraocular lens diffractive design extends your eye’s depth of focus. To achieve this, the height and profile of the echelettes are optimized to transmit light over a range of distances, called constructive interference.

Tecnis Symfony™ Achromatic Technology

The diffractive lens design also reduces chromatic aberration that occurs when light is refracted at different angles by your cornea. This splits the clear image your retina should receive, resulting in a blur and loss of contrast. The diffractive Symfony IOL counters the refractive cornea, letting every wavelength of color meet at the same focal point to provide sharp focus and visual contrast.   

The Benefits of the Tecnis Symfony™ Intraocular Lens

LaserVue Eye Center’s ophthalmologists help cataract surgery patients achieve better clarity every day with the Tecnis Symfony IOL. With this premium lens we can lessen your dependency on corrective glasses and offer an extended range of high-quality vision after cataract surgery.  

The Tecnis Symfony™ IOL Delivers Continuous Full Range Vision

The proprietary design of the Tecnis Symfony IOL elongates the patient’s depth of focus, offering clear vision over near, intermediate, and far distances simultaneously. Patients with the Tecnis Symfony lens rely far less on glasses for near and intermediate activities than those with traditional monofocal and multifocal IOLs.

Correct Presbyopia with Tecnis Symfony™ IOL Extended Vision Technology

The Tecnis Symfony IOL is the first lens to achieve an extended range of continuous, high-quality vision for cataract surgery patients that also suffer from presbyopia. Presbyopia is an age-related farsightedness that distorts near vision as the natural lens hardens and becomes less flexible with age. The Tecnis Symfony IOL allows your eyes to focus on nearby objects once again with no or minimal assistance of reading glasses.  

Tecnis Symfony™ IOL Reduces Visual Disturbances

The elongated focus of the Tecnis Symfony IOL implant reduces visual disturbances such as a halo effect or glares. In a clinical study, patients found a lower level of these spherical aberrations than with other multifocal intraocular lenses. 

Seamless Day-to-Night Vision with the Tecnis Symfony™ IOL

Patients with the Symfony lens are able to see objects at all distances with a sharpness and clarity no matter the time of day. Reduced glare and halo effects, as well as enhanced night-time vision make activities such as driving at night and reading in a dim setting much easier. Eye adjustments from a bright area to a darker space are also improved with Tecnis Symfony IOL patients.

The Tecnis Symfony™ Toric for Astigmatism 

the Tecnis Symfony Toric IOL

The Tecnis Symfony IOL also comes in a toric design to correct a patient’s astigmatism. Astigmatism is a common eye condition caused by a misshapen cornea that bends light in a way that doesn’t focus properly on the retina. The result is blurry and distorted eyesight that typically requires prescription eyewear to alleviate. You can now enjoy brilliant continuous vision in any light, without the need for glasses with the Tecnis Symfony Toric IOL. Cataracts, presbyopia, and now astigmatism are addressed with this premium intraocular lens.
