New Technology Offers People with Cataracts a Full Range of Vision and Freedom from Eyeglasses.
Health Canada has approved TECNIS® Symfony Extended Range of Vision intraocular lens (IOL) for the treatment of people with cataracts.
The incidence of cataracts increases with age from about 12 per cent at age 50, to 60 per cent at age 70. In general, approximately 50 per cent of Canadians 65 years of age or older have cataracts.
In a clinical study of 31 people who had the TECNIS Symfony IOL implanted showed 70 per cent of them reporting rarely or never requiring wearing glasses.
