Symfony toric is a new premium intraocular lens to correct astigmatism. It is manufactured by Johnson and Johnson, the same company which also makes Band Aids.
There are about 4 million cataracts surgeries that are performed every year and more than half of Americans have undergone cataracts surgery by the time that they are 80 years old. It is not only a condition that treats older people, but it can occur in the eyes of any human being. Similar surgeries are done in people who suffer from presbyopia, astigmatism, and other problems people may experience with their vision. These surgeries are not necessarily painful, but they do cause some discomfort. However, there is a new way in which patients can look forward to crisp vision after the surgery.
Symfony Toric is FDA approved
The Symfony Toric contact lens has been approved by the FDA recently and shows that it can help with any of the above problems. Doctors have recommended it to their patients following their cataract surgery in order to help them enhance their recovery and vision. It is especially helpful for those who suffer from presbyopia. The lens returns the sense of freedom and independence to the patients and allows them to continue with an active lifestyle without having to wear glasses.
During a cataract or presbyopia surgery, the lens of the eye is removed and an artificial lens, or IOL, is inserted into the eye. The IOL is usually a monofocal lens which only allows patients to see objects at a distance. The result is then that objects that are closer are out of focus. The Symfony lens is developed in such a way that both the objects at a far distance and those at a closer distance can be seen perfectly. It improves the range as well as the quality of vision in patients. Those who have had the Symfony implanted in their eyes have proven to have more successful results than those who have the IOL implanted in their eyes.
The Symfony lens has been approved by over 50 different countries worldwide and is also available in the United States of America. It has been clinically tested on over 2,000 eyes and these are the results that have been returned:
- Provides seamless, day to day vision: the patients with the Symfony lens showed that their vision has improved and that they could see objects that were far away, objects that were at intermediate distances, and objects that were close to them. They could also see different points in between and they reported clearer and sharper vision.
- Symfony Toric provides high-quality vision: in contrast with the IOLs, the Symfony does not leave the patient with an inability to focus. The reason for this is because the Symfony is specifically engineered to capture the wavelengths of light at the right spots as it hits the lens. It also moulds to the shape of the cornea for improved vision.
- Symfony Toric has a resistance against halo and glare: the Symfony has reduced the chances of bright glows around bright lights, enabling the patient to see better without disturbances. This allows the patient to drive and see better at night time.
