TECNIS Symfony Lens Q & A

Atlanta Vision Cataract and Laser Center

What are cataracts?

Each of your eyes has a natural lens through which light passes on its way to each retina. This lens refracts light from your surroundings and focuses it so that you can see clearly. If this lens becomes damaged or clouded, so too do the images you see.

A cataract refers to the clouding of your typically clear lens. This cloudiness causes blurry vision, which many patients describe as similar to looking through a dusty window.

Though cataracts can develop at any time, ophthalmologists tend to see them most in aging patients, those who have been injured, and those with inherited genetic disorders.

What are the symptoms of cataracts?

While blurred vision tends to be the most obvious indicator of cataracts, there are plenty of symptoms to watch out for,  including:

  • Cloudy, dim vision — especially at night
  • Light sensitivity or strong glares
  • Double vision, typically in one eye
  • Sudden “muting” or yellowing of colors
  • A constant need to change contact lens prescription
  • “Halos” around lights

Is cataract surgery the best treatment option?

If your prescription lenses aren’t cutting it anymore, surgery is your best bet to treat cataracts.

Cataract surgery involves removing your cloudy lens and replacing it with a clear and artificial lens. This new lens will allow you to see the world clearly again.

Known as an intraocular lens — or I-O-L for short — the artificial lens will replace the damaged one. The replacement resembles the natural lenses in your eyes, and you can choose from several different options.

What are my lens choices?
