Important Safety Information
 
Welcome to the TECNIS® Intraocular Lens (IOL) Patient Education tool. This program is designed to assist you with an understanding of common eye conditions you may be experiencing, as well as an overview of the different type of IOLs available to address these conditions, and a vision simulator that helps illustrate the different performance benefits of each lens type.
 
Important Safety Information
 

Normal Vision

In a healthy eye, light enters through the cornea and passes through the natural lens. This light is then correctly focused onto the retina, yielding a clear image.

Weitsichtigkeit

In a healthy eye, light enters through the cornea and passes through the natural lens. This light is then correctly focused onto the retina, yielding a clear image.

Kurzsichtigkeit

In a healthy eye, light enters through the cornea and passes through the natural lens. This light is then correctly focused onto the retina, yielding a clear image.

Astigmatism

An eye with astigmatism has a cornea that is irregularly shaped, more curved in one direction than the other. This causes light images to not focus sharply on the retina, resulting in blurry vision.

Presbyopia

Around age 40, the natural lens inside the eye hardens and becomes less flexible. This reduces the eye’s ability to switch from seeing distance objects to seeing near objects.

Cataract

As we continue to age, the eyes natural lens becomes cloudy and discolored. When this occurs, light rays passing through the eye become scattered and unfocused, resulting in a blurry image.

Cateract Surgery

In order to see clearly again, the natural cloudy lens needs to be surgically removed and in its place, an artificial Intra-Ocular Lens (or IOL) will be implanted.

TECNIS® MONOFOCAL LENS
  • Provides high quality vision at one focal point - usually distance
  • Need glases for near vision
  • Does not correct pre-existing astigmatism
MONOFOCAL WITH ASTIGMATISM CORRECTION
  • Provides high quality vision at one focal point - usually distance
  • Need glases for near vision
  • Corrects pre-existing astigmatism
TECNIS® MULTIFOCAL LENS
  • Provides ability to focus near, intermediate and distance in most cases
  • Dependence on glasses reduced or eliminated all together
  • Does not correct pre-existing astigmatism
MULTIFOCAL WITH ASTIGMATISM CORRECTION
  • Provides ability to focus near, intermediate and distance in most cases
  • Dependence on glasses reduced or eliminated all together
  • Corrects pre-existing astigmatism

CLICK TO SEE THE IOL LIGHT DISTRIBUTION

Monofocal Lens

With a monofocal lens, light passing through the lens is directed to one focal point, typically distance vision. It will correct your cataract but you will need glasses for viewing objects up close and at intermediate distances.

Multifocal Lens

With a multifocal lens light passing through the lens is directed to multiple focal points – near, intermediate and distance. The intended benefit is to provide you with a full range of vision and to reduce or eliminate your need for glasses.

Symphony Lens

With a Symphony lens light passing through the lens is directed to multiple focal points – near, intermediate and distance. The intended benefit is to provide you with a full range of vision and to reduce or eliminate your need for glasses.

When we are young and have normal vision we can see near, intermediate and distant objects clearly.
Around the age of 40-45 the natural lens begins to harden causing the eye
to lose its ability to focus up close without reading glasses or bifocal lenses.
As we age, the natural lens inside the eye becomes cloudy and must
be surgically removed and replaced with an Intraocular Lens (IOL).
A Standard Monofocal IOL is designed to provide clear vision at one focal point, usually distance.
The TECNIS® Monofocal IOLs is designed to provide clear vision at one focal point, usually distance and has an
FDA approved claim for improved functional vision1 compared to a standard monofocal IOL.
Standard Monofocal IOLs provide good distance vision but may also create unwanted glare around lights at night.
The TECNIS® Monofocal IOL is designed to provide excellent distance vision at night1 and has an FDA approved claim
for improved functional vision1 which may be of benefit in low light situations compared to a standard monofocal IOL.
The TECNIS® Monofocal IOL is designed to provide clear vision at one focal point, usually distance. It will clear the distortions caused by the cataract but glasses will typically be required to provide a full range of vision and to clear the distortions caused by pre-existing astigmatism.
The TECNIS® Multifocal IOL is designed to clear the distortions caused by the cataract and to provide a full range
of vision2,3 (near, intermediate and distance) - reducing or eliminating the need for reading glasses or bifocals.
The TECNIS® Monofocal IOL is designed to provide excellent distance vision at night1 but will typically require glasses to
provide a full range of vision (near, intermediate and distance) and to correct the distortions caused by pre-existing astigmatism.
All multifocal IOLs divide light into different focal points which can create rings around lights at night.
For most patients, the rings become less noticeable over time.
The TECNIS® Monofocal Toric IOL is designed to provide clear vision at one focal point, usually distance. It is designed to clear the distortions caused by the cataract as well as the distortions caused by pre-existing astigmatism.
Monofocal IOLs along with astigmatism correction are designed to provide good vision at one focal point, usually distance. They are designed to clear the distortions caused by the cataract as well as the distortions caused by pre-existing astigmatism.
The TECNIS® Monofocal Toric IOL is designed to provide excellent distance vision at night1 and to eliminate blurry vision caused by pre-existing astigmatism.
Monofocal IOLs along with astigmatism correction are designed to provide good distance
vision at night and to eliminate blurry vision caused by pre-existing astigmatism.
The TECNIS® Multifocal Toric IOL is designed to clear the distortions cause by the cataract and to provide patients with pre-existing astigmatism
a full range of vision2,3 (near, intermediate and distance) - reducing or eliminating the need for reading glasses or bifocals.
Multifocal IOLs along with astigmatism correction are designed to provide patients with pre-existing astigmatism
a full range of vision2,3 (near, intermediate and distance) with reduced need for reading glasses or bifocals.

Astigmatism can cause blurry vision at all distances and often occurs with nearsightedness or farsightedness.
The TECNIS® Symfony Extended Range of Vision is designed to clear the distortions caused by the cataract and to provide a full range of of continuous, high-quality vision(##) (near, intermediate and distance) - reducing or eliminating the need for reading glasses or bifocals.

TECNIS® Symfony Extended Range of Vision IOLs extend light across distance, which can create rings around lights at night.You may notice the rings, but they should be less noticeable than with a multifocal IOL. For most patients, the rings become less noticeable over time.
