Goodbye Cataracts

Goodbye, Cataracts! The Tecnis IOL is Here!

TECNIS® Symfony Premium IOL Offers Visionary Eye Doctor’s Cataract Patients Freedom From Glasses

Visionary Eye Doctors is led by the vision of providing our patients the best eye health care available with kindness and a loving touch! One way we continue working toward this goal is by providing our patients the most advanced technology available to ensure the best vision correction possible. When it comes to refractive vision correction treatments to reduce or eliminate your need for glasses, the new advanced TECNIS® Symfony Intraocular Lens (IOL) may be the best option for you.

During cataract surgery, you have the option of electing technology and premium lenses that work to get you out of glasses and contact lenses. Often, even the most advanced options will still require the use of reading glasses to see up close. The Symfony lens offers new optical technology to provide an Extended Range of Vision for your eyes.

The lens works to create continuous, clear vision with minimal to no need for glasses at every visual range – near, far and intermediate. This allows patients to see well when they are reading the newspaper or their phone, working on the computer or watching television and driving or playing golf.

The Symfony IOL comes in a Non-Toric and Toric version. The Toric Symfony IOL is used when a patient needs astigmatism correction at the same time as cataract surgery, enabling them to have the clearest vision possible after their surgery.

Premiere Cataract Surgery at VED

For years the femtosecond technology has been used in the LASIK procedures to sharpen the vision of more youthful eyes. Our experienced physicians use the same technology to safely remove cataracts and correct astigmatism for vision that is clear and sharp. Also the Optiwave Refractive Analysis (ORA) delivers real-time analysis of lens power, lens position, and astigmatism correction during cataract surgery that optimizes results and minimizes the need for further refinement. We are one the few practices in the Washington, DC, DC metro area with this technology. Our Premium Cataract surgery offering with the use of the Symfony IOL works the same as cataract surgery with any other type of intraocular lens implant. Your cataract surgeon removes your old, cloudy lens and replaces it with the new Symfony IOL. This advanced lens has proven to give our patients the freedom from vision correcting devices such as contacts or glasses.

The Tecnis Symfony lens received FDA approval in the United States in July 2016 and is available at Visionary Eye Doctors. If you notice that your vision is changing and your glasses are no longer creating a crisp, bright image, you have poor night vision and your vision may be blurry, you may have cataracts. Schedule an appointment with one of our optometrists to have a complete eye exam and learn more about our Cataract surgical options!
