TECNIS Symfony Extended Range of Vision IOL
A New Option for Cataract Patients
On July 15, 2016, the FDA approved the Tecnis Symfony® Intraocular Lenses. According to Abbott, the maker of the new lenses:
The first in a new category of intraocular lenses (IOLs), the Tecnis Symfony lenses are the only lenses in the United States that provide a full range of continuous high-quality vision following cataract surgery, while also mitigating the effects of presbyopia by helping people focus on near objects. The FDA approval includes a version of the lens for people with astigmatism, the Tecnis Symfony Toric IOL.
Download or view their Patient Brochure, or view the Abbott IOL Vision Simulator here for online presentations including How the Eye Works and Understanding Your IOL Options plus a Vision Simulator to compare different lens options.
