NEW SYMFONY LENS IMPLANTED BY DR. DAVIES!

This week, Dr. Davies implanted the recently FDA approved, first-of-its-kind intraocular lens (IOL) for cataract treatment that provides vision at near, intermediate, and far distances as a multifocal IOL does, but with less of a halo and glare problem.

The new lens, the Tecnis Symfony IOL, from Abbott Medical Optics, gives patients with cataracts “extended depth of focus” to improve visual acuity at any distance, according to an FDA news release. That’s an improvement upon traditional monofocal IOLs, typically designed to improve far-distance vision at the expense of seeing things closer up.

To learn more about this lens or to schedule an appointment for an eye exam with Dr. Davies to see if you qualify for this lens, call us at 760.729.7101.
