Have you noticed that as you age, you are beginning to struggle with your vision? Even if you have not yet developed cataracts, you may be having trouble with focusing on objects up close such as the newspaper or a computer screen. Depending upon your particular lifestyle and current prescription, your surgeon may recommend Refractive Lens Exchange.
Tecnis Symfony IOL
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.
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.
