Abstract Details


To evaluate one month clinical outcome in patients with bilateral implantation of the Tecnis Symfony Extended Range of Vision intraocular lens (IOL).


University Eye Hospital Svjetlost, Zagreb, Croatia


Twenty patients (40 eyes) were followed after cataract surgery or refractive lens exchange with bilateral implantation of the Tecnis Symfony IOL. Uncorrected distant visual acuity (UCDVA), uncorrected intermediate visual acuity (UCIVA) at 66 cm, uncorrected near visual acuity (UCNVA), spectacle independence, patient satisfaction and visual disturbances were measured. Follow up was one month.


Patients were free of glasses. All patients achieved binocular UCDVA 0.00 logMAR or better. Mean binocular UCIVA at 66 cm was 0.01 logMAR and UCNVA at patient’s preferred distance (48.85±4.2 cm) was 0.11 logMAR. Night driving visual disturbances reported 3 of 20 patients. One of them had posterior vitreous detachment and second had posterior capsular fibrosis. Patients were asked to fill the questioner regarding to their functioning without glasses, satisfaction with vision and everyday activities. Only two of them complained to near reading and night vision. All of them would recommend the same lens.


The 1-month data of the TECNIS® Symfony Extended Range of Vision IOL demonstrate extended range of vision with excellent uncorrected visual acuity for far and intermediate, and providing functional near vision with low incidence of optical symptoms. Patients are highly satisfied and spectacle independent in everyday life.
