What are my choices for an IOL?
There are five types of intraocular lenses (IOLs) offered by Hattiesburg Eye Clinic. The Standard IOL, typically covered by insurance, corrects primarily for distance vision and is not effective if you have astigmatism (an imperfection in the curve of the eye). A Toric Lens can correct astigmatism as well as distance vision. The TECNIS Eyhance™ Lens, is a monofocal lens with a new breakthrough design that extends depth of focus for intermediate vision. The fourth type of lens we offer is the TECNIS Symfony® Lens known as an extended depth of focus (EDOF) lens which can correct near, intermediate (for example, computer screen) and distant vision, as well as contains a Toric component to correct astigmatism. Many patients who receive the Symfony® report better vision now than when they were younger. And, the TECNIS Synergy™ Lens features a new breakthrough innovation known as continuous-range-of-vision that extends depth of focus setting a new standard for IOLs. Our surgeons were among the first in the nation to provide Symfony and Synergy lenses to their patients.
