In 2016, the FDA approved the Tecnis Symfony intraocular lenses as the first and only extended depth of focus solution for people with cataracts.

Clear and crisp
vision at all distances

Most IOLs used in cataract surgery are monofocal lenses. They allow patients to see well at a distance, while nearby objects remain out of focus. The Symfony lens was designed specifically to address this issue, allowing patients to enjoy clear and crisp vision no matter where an object is located. In fact, many of our clients are able to stop wearing both distance and reading glasses once their Symfony lenses have been implanted.

The benefits

The Symfony lens has been proven both safe and effective. In clinical studies, the lens has been shown to:

  • Deliver enhanced day-to-night vision. Patients with Symfony lenses are able to see objects clearly during the day and at night, whether those objects are near, far or in between.
  • Provide high-quality vision. In the past, patients were unsatisfied with their standard IOLs because they were unable to focus due to the shape of the lens and the way light passes through. The Symfony lens was developed to resolve these precise issues and deliver high-quality vision.
  • Reduced halo and glare. With traditional IOLs, many patients reported issues with glare and haloes around lights, especially at night. Symfony lenses are not associated with these complications as often.

What to expect during the procedure

The procedure to implant Symfony lenses is fairly straightforward. When you arrive at our Los Angeles facility the day of your surgery, we will begin by prepping you for the procedure and reviewing the details of your treatment. From there, Dr. Benjamin will begin the operation by administering drops or an injection to numb your eyes. If you’re very nervous, he may also offer a sedative to help you relax and ensure your comfort.

To perform the actual surgery, the doctor will make a tiny incision on the surface of the cornea. This will allow them to access and carefully remove the clouded lens and implant the Symfony replacement lens. Generally, no sutures are needed to close the incisions as they are self-sealing.

After the procedure, you’ll need to spend about 15 to 30 minutes in our recovery room so our staff can monitor your condition. If you appear to be recovering as predicted, you will be free to return home to complete the healing process in the comfort of your own space. However, your doctor will want to see you again within a couple of days to examine your eyes and make sure the healing process is progressing.

Upon learning about Symfony lenses, many patients express an interest in using them during their cataract surgery. If you have been diagnosed with cataracts and the lens aligns with your lifestyle preferences and the health of your eyes, you may be considered a candidate.

During your consultation at our Los Angeles office, Dr. Benjamin will perform a full examination to help you determine if Symfony lenses are right for you.

    I have had dry eyes for a quite sometime and had seen several physicians and got eye drops etc but not until I have seen  Dr. Benjamin I found how serious problem that it was. I had the most thorough and individual attention by Dr. Benjamin. He explained to me my problem and treatment options available. Dr. Benjamin and His staff  are very caring and they spend as much time with you as needed and one feels taken care of. I was given state of the art treatment for my dry eyes and my eyes went from feeling tired , red , scratchy and itchy to brilliantly glowing clear. Office is very serene and staff is attentive, pleasant and smiling. Dr. Benjamin is very down to earth and explains thoroughly that one understands what alis them. I will definitely  keep coming back for all my eye issues.

    I wish I had come to Dr. Benjamin years ago!!!

    I have been hopping around between 3 eye doctors in the last few years complaining of severe eye pain, redness - so bad I haven't been able to wear contacts for a year. Every other doctor made a diagnosis in 2 minutes, prescribed a few things and sent me on my way. Nothing helped and the doctors kept saying my eyes looked fine despite my symptoms. Finally I saw Dr. Benjamin, and he listened to my concerns from top to bottom and did tests the other doctors never did! He made a brand new diagnosis which finally makes sense and fits my symptoms. He spent almost an hour with me which is unbelievable. I am so impressed with this place, even the front desk and other staff were so friendly. I'm so relieved and am looking forward to making a recovery with Dr. Benjamin and eventually getting LASIK.
