Tennis Symfony IOL

Patients are pleased with Symfony Lens

 

For those suffering from presbyopia and cataracts, there is a new IOL on the market called the Tecnis Symfony. The Symfony is the first of its kind that’s able to treat both cataracts and presbyopia, while improving a full range of vision. Unlike most intraocular lenses, the Symfony IOL exhibits low instance of the effects of halos and glare around lights. Instead, patients are left with clear, crisp vision. Even if a patient has cataracts, they get the full range of their vision back: intermediate, distant and near vision. The Symfony IOL allows for a higher quality of life and a lessened dependence on reading glasses.

How Does The Tecnis Symfony IOL Work?

The Symfony IOL is ideal for patients who are already candidates for receiving cataract surgery. During cataract surgery, the Symfony IOL is implanted in the eye. The Symfony IOL is used to replace the cataract affected lens in the eye, leaving in its path clearer vision. The Symfony IOL doesn’t affect the way that cataract surgery is performed. Instead, it only changes the way that you see after. Most patients are able to see more clearly almost immediately after surgery, and full results are achieved thereafter.

Why Should You Choose The Tecnis Symfony?

A big advantage of the Symfony IOL is most patients who receive it find that they no longer need their reading glasses to see things. Standard lenses used during cataract surgery will not change the need for glasses, and in many cases do not correct presbyopia. Another advantage over standard lenses is not having to worry about pesky halos and glare surrounding lights. The Symfony IOL improves vision for patients at all distances, which standard lenses cannot do.

How Do I Get The Tecnis Symfony?

Since the Symfony IOL lens is new technology to the United States, it can be difficult to find practices at which it is offered. Not to worry, because The Harman Eye Clinic is now offering the brand new Symfony presbyopia-correcting IOL. Contact us for more information about cataract surgery consultations.

The Symfony IOL is a revolutionary new lens, but not everyone is a good candidate for receiving this new technology. It’s important to talk to your doctor to see if cataract surgery is the best solution for you. For those that suffer from both cataracts and presbyopia, the Tecnis Symfony IOL lens could be the answer to regaining clear vision. To learn more about the Symfony, please schedule a consultation with one of our talented cataract surgeons.

Bring back the joy of childhood!

Wouldn’t it be great if you could go through the day without thinking about glasses or contact lenses to navigate?  Millions of people have discovered the freedom that comes from becoming functionally free.

Think about it.  Vision is the deciding factor for confidence, mobility, enjoyment, and on, and on, and on.  With vision, you can cook your dinner, drive your car, play tennis, swim, write a novel, play with your children, run in a race, smile at your spouse, take great selfies, read, dance, walk your dog.  It is true, you can do all these things with glasses and contacts.  And, if you are not sighted, you have learned how to get around the need for vision.  But you will agree, vision is a most wonderful sense.

Since 1995, we have been able to provide LASIK surgery to many people of the Pacific Northwest.  They have experienced a sort of rebirth experience.  Freedom from depending on glasses or contacts is invigorating, like the first day you drove with your new driving license.  It is worth looking into.

For more information, call our refractive consultant at 360-474-2561 or schedule an appointment.

Create a meaningful doctor encounter

Prepare for your encounters with your doctor.

Patient Portal Made Easy

More and more medical offices are offering an on-line connection with private medical charting.   At The Harman Eye Clinic in Arlington WA, we encourage patients to login to a secure online website to access personal health information from anywhere with an internet connection, and at any time of the day or night.  Our staff will help you set this up during a phone call.

Even more important is the ability to supply your doctor with information PRIOR to your visit.  Patients can register any time; most patients register when they schedule their appointment.  You are able to enter information such as:

  1. Your medications with dosage and strength
  2. Your past medical history
  3. Insurance information and any recent changes in your patient demographics.

At The Harman Eye Clinic in Arlington WA, the Patient Portal records are your medical records  This means that when you want your medical records, you no longer need to request them.  They are always within reach.

Providing  patient information updates,  past medical histories and medication updates, certainly helps create a more satisfying visit.

What about cataract consultations?

As you may know, every medical surgery comes with a list of risks and benefits and it becomes the patient’s responsibility to become sufficiently informed in order to give their consent.  If you first learn at your appointment that you are a candidate for cataract surgery, it can be stressful.

A way patients can make their consultation more meaningful is to watch the Informed Consent Video before they see their surgeon.  At The Harman Eye Clinic in Arlington, WA, patients are encouraged to watch the video and learn about the different options in lens implants.  Patients print out the quiz for their visit.  They cut off about 15 minutes of their exam by watching this at home.

Best though, is the fact that when you finally meet up with your surgeon after numerous diagnostic measurements and testing, you will better understand your surgeon’s recommendation.  It makes for a much more satisfying encounter.  We recommend that if you are considering cataract surgery, you watch this video prior to coming to your consultation.  You will be glad you did.watch-informed-consent-001
