Have you heard about the new Symfony intraocular lens and want to visit an ophthalmic office that offers them? If so, you will definitely want to come in to meet with our Garden Grove eye doctor at our practice, Orange Coast Eye Centers; our two top-notch ophthalmologists are Dr. Lincoln L. Manzi and Dr. Jared R. Younger.

At our ophthalmology practice, we are very pleased to offer Tecnis Symfony intraocular lenses. These lenses are often referred to as extended range of vision lenses. These lenses can be implanted by our eye doctor during cataract surgery, to replace the damaged natural lens of the eye. The benefits of these lenses is that they provide a full range of high quality vision, similar to the zoom lens of a camera. This intraocular lens is approved in more than 50 countries around the world, and has been the subject of many clinical studies. Our ophthalmologist is the first surgeon in our area of Orange County to use this lens. The benefits of the Symfony lens to the patient are many. To begin with, this lens provides seamless day-to-night vision for our patients. Our patients can see objects clearly at all distances. The Symfony lenses do not cause some of the problems other intraocular lenses do which leaves the patient with an inability to focus clearly. These lenses also have a low incidence of halo and glare problems which can be common with intraocular lenses. These problems can sometimes hurt a patient’s ability to drive at night or to perform certain other tasks. If you are interested in learning more about these innovative intraocular lenses, and seeing if they can be used in your cataract surgery, we hope you will visit our Garden Grove eye doctor.

If you think you may be developing cataract problems, or know that you will be needing cataract surgery, we know that you will want to meet with our Garden Grove eye doctor at our vision practice regarding cataract care and Symfony lenses.

Do you have cataracts? If you do, then we don’t have to tell you about the obstacles that they create to living your life independently, the way you want to. Here at Orange Coast Eye Center, we understand the frustration and that’s why we want to help. Our Garden Grove eye doctor works closely with you from examination to diagnosis; from treatment with eyeglasses or contact lenses all the way through surgery to correct the effects of cataracts on your eyes. And that’s why we’re especially excited about Symfony, a new frontier in state-of-the-art treatment for cataracts.

When you first get cataracts, you may not notice any changes to your vision at all. But soon enough, everyone with this disease will experience some degree of blurriness or cloudiness. This is due to the protein buildup on the lenses of your eyes that defines cataracts. Depending on your unique circumstances, you may be able to get by for a very long time with varying updates to your prescription lenses and still be able to enjoy sufficient vision to work, use a computer, watch TV, read, and engage in your favorite activities. But what happens when the threshold has been crossed and you are no longer able to get effective results from corrective lenses? That’s when our Garden Grove eye doctor will recommend surgery to remove your eye lenses, since there is no way to remove the cataracts from them.

Cataract surgery leaves you will unhindered vision again, but without your natural eye lenses, which are the part that allow you to focus, you will need something to take their place. At one point, the only option was glasses or contacts. But then came the introduction of the intraocular lens implant, which replaced your natural eye lenses with prosthetics that provided clarity in distance vision, but not up close. With Symfony, though, our Garden Grove eye doctor can provide you with excellent multifocal vision, of the quality that one would expect from a zoom lens camera. It’s truly a revolution and is the first of its kind available. It can be implanted during the same procedure that removes your eye lens, for greater efficiency and convenience.
