Seamless Brilliance

The TECNIS SymfonyTM IOL mitigates the effects of presbyopia so you can empower your patients to see clearly across the full range of vision.​1

Leading Innovation. High-Quality Vision. Exceptional Satisfaction.

Delivering excellent uncorrected visual acuity (VA) at all distances, 
the TECNIS SymfonyTM IOL allows your patients to see clearly across a full range of vision.1

Defocus Curve2

6-Month Data, Bilaterally Implanted Subjects


  • Sustained 20/25 or better mean VA through 1.5 D
  • Sustained 20/40 or better mean VA through 2.5 D
  • Increase of 1.0 D range of vision throughout the defocus curve

Rather than splitting light into distinct focal points,
the TECNIS SymfonyTM IOL elongates focus, resulting in an increased depth of field. This empowers you to deliver a full range of continuous vision while maintaining high image contrast.1

Monocular Contrast Sensitivity at 6 Months2

Mesopic without Glare

Deliver the visual quality that allows your patients with and without astigmatism to see clearly in any lighting condition.

  • High-quality distance vision in the presence of astigmatism1
  • Pupil-independent performance enables optimal performance in any lighting condition1
  • Low overall spectacle wear1

The TECNIS SymfonyTM IOL delivers 20/20 or better vision through 1.5 D of astigmatism.2

85% of patients wear glasses none or a little bit of the time.2

By combining a unique diffractive pattern with achromatic technology,
the TECNIS SymfonyTM IOL delivers outstanding visual acuity over a continuous range of distances while maintaining high contrast performance.1

  • Proprietary relief profile elongates focus1
  • Proprietary achromatic technology corrects chromatic aberration and enhances image contrast1

Degree of Difficulty with Visual Symptoms3

Percentage of Eyes, Non-Directed Reports, 6 Months Postoperative


Low incidence of visual symptoms, including halos, glare and starbursts1

Unlike another leading IOL, TECNISTM IOL material is not associated with
glistenings,4-8 which can inhibit your patients’ vision. Glistenings cause light scatter, which can result in a reduction in image contrast.5-9
