The TECNIS® Symfony IOL is a brand new offering for those that are suffering from presbyopia in addition to cataracts. The Symfony IOL is the only lens that has been approved to treat presbyopia, as well as improve distance vision. Unlike many intraocular lenses, the Symfony IOL doesn’t give patients halos or glare around lights, instead leaving them with clear, crisp vision. Have cataracts? Getting the Symfony IOL will give patients their full range of vision back: distant, intermediate and near vision.
How does it work?
For patients who are having their cataracts removed, the Symfony IOL is implanted during surgery. The Symfony is used to replace the natural cataract-affected lens of the eye. That's it! The Symfony does not change how cataract surgery is performed; it only changes the way you see afterward. Patients see clearly almost immediately after surgery, with full results achieved shortly after.
Why choose Symfony?
Many patients who receive the Symfony IOL find that they no longer need their reading glasses - a big advantage over standard lenses. Another distinct advantage over standard lenses is a decreased chance of experiencing the annoying glare and halos around lights. The Symfony IOL also provides patients with improved vision at ALL distances!
How do I get the Symfony IOL?
Since the Symfony IOL is so new, not many practices are currently offering it. Luckily, Regional Eye Associates, with many convenient locations throughout West Virginia and Maryland, is offering this brand new technology! Contact one of our many locations in Morgantown, Fairmont, Bridgeport and more for your cataract surgery consultation.
The Symfony is a revolutionary new lens, but it’s not for everyone. Make sure to talk to your doctor and see if you are a good candidate for cataract surgery. For those that are suffering from cataracts and presbyopia, the Symfony IOL is a great new option for regaining clear vision. To learn more about the Symfony IOL and if it is right for you, schedule a consultation with one of our skilled cataract surgeons!
