With the Tecnis Symfony intraocular lens having been available for a little over a year now, we are starting to see many cases of this lens being implanted, the post-operative journey that the patients went through, and the refractive and vision results from the Symfony lens.

I currently work at a refractive surgery center in which we now almost exclusively use the Symfony lens for our patients who are undergoing cataract surgery with a multifocal lens implant. Our outcomes are better than before; sharper vision at both distance and near with less glare and halos, a smoother transition through the viewing distances, and greater depth of focus. Our patients and our surgeons have been extremely satisfied! 

Interested in learning more about the optics of the lens and how to explain cataracts, cataract surgery, and lens options to your patients? Check out this video by Dr. Marc Bloomenstein and Dr. Justin Schweitzer!
