At Exeter Eye our ophthalmic surgeons are pleased to use Symfony lens implants – the only presbyopia-correcting extended range of vision intraocular lens (IOL).
The Symfony is an example of an emerging class of IOL known as ’the extended-depth-of-focus lens’. It is the first lens that corrects all types of vision problems at once and can be inserted in just a simple operation. It works at any distance and in any light condition, acting more like a camera zoom than other multi-focal lenses which have three distinct points of focus.
Unlike traditional multifocal lenses there is no reduction in contrast sensitivity with the Symfony lens, and it has a special defraction grating, making it similar to a traditional lens implant but with the added benefit of a reading prescription.
Treating presbyopia (age-related long-sightedness), the IOL is implanted into the eye during a normal cataract operation. Recovery time is minimal, with most patients able to return to their usual routine just 24 hours after surgery.
At Exeter Eye we will only recommend a treatment if we feel it is appropriate for you and believe it will help you achieve the results you are looking for.
