Intraocular Lens Implant (IOL) Options
Standard Monofocal Implants provide the patient with clear distance vision; but, they may still need corrective eyewear for near and intermediate vision.
Multifocal Implants give patients a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a full range of vision. These lenses allow clear vision for near, intermediate and far distances, and can eliminate or greatly reduce the patient’s need for glasses.
Scott and Christie and Associates was one of the first ten locations nationwide to offer the SYMFONY lens to patients that suffer from cataracts. The SYMFONY lens from Abbot Medical can reduce and in many cases eliminate a patients need to wear glasses after cataract surgery. The Tecnis SYMFONY Intraocular Lens was specifically developed to improve both the range and quality of vision.
In 2014 Scott and Christie participated in a clinical study that compared the SYMFONY lens to an aspherical monofocal lens. Compared to the monofocal group, the SYMFONY lens achieved greater improvements in near and intermediate vision. It also provided seamless day-to-night vision, a higher quality of vision, and demonstrated a low incidence of halo and glare.
These combined technologies provide patients with a fine-tuned, full range of vision.
