The Synergy IOL is for Patients with Presbyopia and Cataracts
What Is A Synergy IOL?
Goal: The Synergy lens is the newest FDA-approved premium lens. It aims to provide a continuous range of vision to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses. It provides distance, intermediate, and near vision.
Distance: Reading road signs, playing sports like golf (4 meters)
Intermediate: Using the computer and cooking (66 cm)
Near: Reading a book or your phone (33 cm ***)
As with any lens, the vision may take time to come into focus
Clear vision at all 3 distances should occur within a few weeks
May give better near vision than other multifocals
Patients may have visual symptoms such as glare or rings around lights
Most patients tolerate these symptoms well and they diminish over time due to a phenomenon called neuroadaptation
More light may be needed at night or in low light conditions for the best vision
Results: Most patients who choose the Synergy IOL do not need glasses for daily activities and are happy. Synergy delivers excellent near vision that may be better than other multifocals.
Synergy improved vision so that 9 out of 10 patients did not wear glasses
One extra line of near visual acuity was present compared other leading lenses
