The New Symfony Lens is Here!
Bishop Eye Center was the first practice in South Carolina and the coastal empire to perform cataract surgery using the Symfony® Toric Intraocular Lens from Abbott Medical Optics.
The Symfony lens was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in July of 2016 and has gained approvals in more than 50 countries around the world. The FDA approval includes a version of the lens for people with astigmatism. These are the only lenses in the United States that provide a full range of continuous high-quality vision following cataract surgery. In clinical studies, the Symfony lens provided seamless day-to-night vision, provided high quality vision and demonstrated a low incidence of halo and glare.
Bishop Eye Center is proud to be the first in the state of South Carolina to offer the Symfony lens. Many of our patients lead active lifestyles and need crisp, clear vision from all distances. The results we are seeing with this new extended depth of focus Symfony lens have been impressive. It has improved our patients vision following cataract surgery and patients are highly satisfied with their individual outcomes.
