Latest addition in presbyopia correcting[ near vision correcting] lenses is Tecnis Symfony lens by Abott Medical Optics which is claimed to be truely presbyopic because of its extended range of vision for near and intermediate distances in addition to distance vision as compared to traditional multifocal lenses listed below which have near vision at a fixed distance only and limited vision at intermediate distances.
The latest addition to the TECNIS® Family of IOLs offers new optical technology for providing an Extended Range of Vision.
Traditional IOL solutions for treating presbyopia include Multifocals and Trifocals, which work on the principle of simultaneous vision by splitting light into multiple distinct foci, and Accommodative IOLs, which change in shape and power when the ciliary muscle contracts.
Traditionally with these technologies, the correction of presbyopia is commonly thought of in terms of the distinct distance for which functional vision is provided.
Key Needs for Presbyopia-Correcting IOLs
- High patient satisfaction by providing reliable outcomes
- Low number of complaints (on refractive outcomes or halos and glare)
- No significant additional chair time
