Toric LensIf you are over the age of 40, chances are you’ve experienced a decline in near vision, forcing you to wear reading glasses several times a day. Many people are fine with wearing reading glasses, while most find them annoying and aging. If you are getting cataract surgery and you have struggled with near vision in the past, the Tecnis Symfony® IOL may be right for you.

The Symfony® IOL is approved to correct presbyopia, the age-related refractive error responsible for your blurry near vision. After cataract surgery with the Symfony IOL, you can enjoy freedom from reading glasses and experience crystal clear vision.

There are multiple choices available for cataract surgery and each has its own advantages and disadvantages. All lenses used by Dr. Yuen and Dr. Tokunaga are FDA approved and come highly recommended by both Doctors and patients.

Symfony IOL

Tecnis Symfony Extended Depth of Focus (EDOF) Intraocular Lens

The Tecnis Symfony lenses were approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on July 15, 2016. The approval was based on results of a U.S. pivotal study involving 298 patients. In clinical studies the Symfony lens:

Provided seamless, day-to-night vision. Patients could see objects sharply and clearly at near, intermediate and far away distances, and points in between.
Provided high-quality vision. Some IOLs may leave patients with an inability to focus clearly due to competing wavelengths of light passing through the lens at different angles (known as chromatic aberration), or with vision that is not completely focused because of the shape of the lens (known as spherical aberration). The Symfony lens has been engineered to correct these issues.
Demonstrated a low incidence of halo and glare, which may be perceived as rings or blurring around bright lights. Glare and halo can sometimes affect an individual’s ability to drive at night or to perform other visual tasks.
