Abstract Details


To evaluate the clinical performance, efficicacy and safety of the multifocal Tecnis Symfony IOLs


Clicical of Ophthalmology, Pomeranian Medical University, Szczecin, Poland


Prospective study comprising 40 eyes of 20 patients undergoing cataract surgery with implantation of Symfony lenses. Three months postoperatively were evaluated: binocular uncorrected distance, intermediate and near visual acuities (UDVA, UIVA, UNVA)(logMAR), uncorrected binocular photopic and mesopic distance and photopic near contrast sensitivities (CSV-1000), spectacle independence, subjective symptoms, patient satisfaction (VFQ-25) and complications.


Three months after binocular uneventful surgery UDVA was equal of 0.1 or better. All eyes had binocular vision at 40 cm higher than 0.2. The intermediate vision was better than 0.35. Contrast sensitivities under different conditions were within normal age-matched limits. All patients were spectacle independent. Low level of halo perception was reported, less than 2 (0-4). Mean overall patient satisfaction was very high, more than 9.0 (0-10). No intra and postoperative complications were detected.


The Tecnis Symfony lenses implantation was a safe and effective method for patients who want to be spectacle independent at different distances.
