The Eye Center strives to be on the leading edge of technology for LASIK and cataract patients. Recently, our own Dr. Brian Huff is the first doctor in South Carolina to implant the new TECNIS® Symfony IOL as a lens replacement option for cataract surgery patients.
The TECNIS® Symfony IOL is the first and only presbyopia-correcting extended range of vision IOL available to cataract patients. The lens is designed to provide outstanding distance vision while also offering a continuous range of quality vision up close. The new lenses also present no increase in nighttime halos when compared with standard IOLs. This new, advanced lens replacement for cataract patients is available in both a Non-Toric version and a Toric version for patients with astigmatism.
“The most exciting aspect of this new technology is we are now able to provide the high quality distance and near vision that the TECNIS Multifocal family of lenses achieves to patients with astigmatism,” says Dr. Huff. “This opens up a whole new frontier in our ability to give patients the best vision possible.”
While IOLs have long been available to correct vision concerns after cataract surgery, many patients found they still required prescriptive lenses for reading and other up close tasks. “Thanks to this advancement, cataract patients have an option that can help them avoid the need for glasses after surgery,” says Dr. Huff. “Being able to help patients enjoy the best vision possible after cataract surgery is a goal this new technology is making attainable.”
