In a monofocal lens (the “standard” lens covered by insurance companies) you have one focal point, distance vision. But near vision continues to be blurry and glasses remain necessary for up-close tasks. With a multi-focal lens, a patient has vision with 2 distant focal points. With the Tecnis Symfony® lens, a patient has an elongated focal point.
The occurances of halo and glare following surgical implantation of the Tecnis Symfony® lens is comparable to that of a monofocal lens.

If you are interested in having a greater range of vision following cataract surgery, please ask your doctor about the Tecnis Symfony®, and see if you are a candidate for the lens.
