If you are over the age of 65, your risk of developing cataracts becomes increasingly high— leaving you with the inability to see as well as you once used to. Luckily, with cataract surgery, the doctors at Keamy Eye and Laser Centre can remove your cataract and replace it with an artificial intraocular lens. As one of the specific types of lenses that we like to use in our office, Symfony lenses come with a variety of added benefits. From giving you back your full vision to helping you live a healthy and active lifestyle, this article will discuss just a few of the benefits of the Symfony lenses. Read on to learn more.
They Restore Your Full Vision
Unlike other types of intraocular lenses that only give patients back one or two vision problems, Symfony lenses give patients back their ability to see both up close and far away, while mitigating symptoms of presbyopia. In fact, after you get your new Symfony lenses, your vision will be as good as it was when you were in your early teens and twenties.
You Can Live a Healthy and Active Lifestyle
Having cataracts can limit your ability to do normal activities like drive, read, and play activities or sports. However, once you have recovered from your cataract surgery, you will be able to live a healthy and active lifestyle once again. And because your full range of vision will be restored, you won’t have to worry about wearing things like reading glasses to read or do activities that require you to see things up close like knitting.
There’s a Low Halo or Glare
One problem that a lot of patients who get intraocular lenses complain of has a weak halo or glare. One of the many benefits of Symfony lenses, however, is that you won’t have a halo or glare, so you will be able to see things more clearly and without hindrance.
Getting cataract surgery is one of the best ways to get rid of your cataracts and restore your vision. As one of the types of lenses we like to use most here at Keamy Eye and Laser Centre, the Symfony lenses have several benefits.
