TECNIS® synergy

Cataracts are a common visual condition and the leading cause of global blindness. Research estimates that around 90% of people will develop at least one cataract by the time they reach the age of 65. Cataracts occur when the natural lens of the eye experiences cellular changes that cause proteins to clump together, creating cloudy patches in your field of vision. Without treatment, these will get worse until your vision is significantly impaired. Cataract treatment involves surgical replacement of the natural lens of the eye with an artificial alternative, called an intraocular lens, or IOL. There are many types of IOL available, but few have as many benefits as TECNIS Synergy.

TECNIS Synergy

What is TECNIS Synergy?

TECNIS Synergy is a breakthrough optical solution that delivers continuous high-contrast vision for patients with cataracts, from near to far vision and everything in between. This provides them with the greatest levels of visual clarity possible during every activity.

TECNIS Synergy:

  • Provides distance vision for reading street signs and intermediate vision for the computer, with improved near vision.
  • Supports continuous, high-contrast vision which can be helpful in low-light scenarios.
  • Gives you improved, continuous vision that could reduce the need with which you need to wear glasses.
  • Contains violet-filtering technology which reduces halo intensity for tasks like driving at night.
  • Reduces the need to begin wearing glasses as visual light conditions change.
  • Eliminates the visual gaps present in trifocal and other multifocal technology.

What makes TECNIS Synergy better than other specialty intraocular lenses?

There are many other types of IOL available, but many of these lack the built-in technology that enables patients to be able to see nearby objects clearly. This has resulted in most patients who have undergone cataract surgery needing to use reading glasses for any activities occurring within arm’s reach, such as reading or using a computer. However, the TECNIS Synergy range of intraocular lenses contains special technology which creates a new standard in vision correction. They are the same shape and size as standard IOLs and so do not add any risks to the surgery itself. They are also available both as standard and toric lenses, meaning that they are suitable for patients with astigmatism too.
