Now available at Canterbury Eye Specialists:
The Symfony Extended Range of Vision intraocular lens
“95% of patients NEVER wear glasses for driving, 85% NEVER wear glasses for computer,mobile phone etc and 75% NEVER wear glasses for reading”
The new Symfony intraocular lens - first implanted in Victoria by Dr Donald Collie of Canterbury eye specialists - is a revolution in implant technology.
The Symfony Extended Range of Vision lens differs from all other intraocular lenses. For the first time, it offers a continuous range of vision between distance and near resembling the natural vision in the healthy eye. Other lenses offer either a single point focus (monofocal lenses) or multiple points of focus (multifocal implants) and as a result, objects which are not at the focal point are blurred.
Because of its unique design, the Symfony lens also has a much lower rate of unwanted visual symptoms which have been seen with multifocal lenses. These symptoms have included glare and halos at night which, while still present in some patient's with the Symfony lens, are much less troublesome.
Dr Collie was selected to be the first surgeon in Victoria to implant the Symfony and has now been using the lens since September 2014. Having performed many Symfony procedures, Dr Collie is now one of the most experienced surgeons in the country with the Symfony lens.
