Tecnis Symfony™ and Symfony Toric™ with Optiblue Extended Depth of Focus (EDOF) IOLs. This lens is designed to allow viewing of objects afar, up close and in between, restoring a patient’s range of vision after cataract surgery or lens exchange surgery – without the need for glasses. This includes activities such as driving, playing golf, reading the newspaper, working on the computer… all without glasses or contacts.
The Tecnis Symfony™ is the first presbyopia-correcting extended depth of focus IOL. It delivers a continuous full range of high-quality vision while correcting issues which have typically been associated with traditional multifocal IOLs:
- Reduced incidence of halos and glare compared to a traditional multifocal IOL, with a 31 patient study reporting no spontaneous complaints of glare or halos at three months after implantation of the Tecnis Symfony™.
- Improved contrast sensitivity and reduced chromatic aberration (an effect resulting from a failure of a lens to focus all colors to the same convergence point) compared to traditional multifocal IOLs.
- Astigmatism correction can be included in the Tecnis Symfony™ IOL, removing what was once a barrier to restoring a range of focus after cataract surgery.
