Defocus Curve1

Binocular Distance Corrected Defocus Curves at 6 Months

 

  • The TECNIS SymfonyTM Toric IOL delivers the same range of continuous vision as the TECNIS SymfonyTM IOL.1

    Rather than splitting light into distinct focal points, the TECNIS SymfonyTM Toric IOL elongates focus, resulting in an increased depth of field. This empowers you to deliver a full range of continuous vision while maintaining high image contrast.

    Monocular Contrast Sensitivity at 6 Months1

    Mesopic without Glare

Testing conducted using the TECNIS SymfonyTM IOL, and not the TECNIS SymfonyTM Toric IOL.

Modular Transfer Function (MTF) is a measure of the amount of contrast transferred by the optics in a visual system. The higher the MTF value, the more contrast transferred to the image, resulting in higher image contrast.

The  TECNIS SymfonyTM Toric IOL equips you with the state-of-the-art technology you need to deliver seamless vision across the full range in any lighting condition.

  • High-quality distance vision in the presence of astigmatism1
  • Pupil-independent performance enables optimal performance in any lighting condition1
  • Low overall spectacle wear1

85% of patients with the TECNIS SymfonyTM Toric IOL wore glasses none or a little bit of the time.*1

By combining a unique diffractive pattern with achromatic technology, the
 TECNIS SymfonyTM Toric IOL delivers outstanding visual acuity over a continuous range of distances while maintaining high contrast performance.

  • Proprietary relief profile elongates focus1
  • Proprietary achromatic technology corrects chromatic aberration and enhances image contrast1

Low incidence of visual symptoms, including halos, glare and starbursts1

The TECNIS SymfonyTM Toric IOL delivers excellent refractive cylinder results.

  • 92% of patients achieved ≤ 0.50 D of residual refractive cylinder**1

Unlike another leading IOL, TECNIS® IOL material is not associated with glistenings,1-5 which can inhibit your patients’ vision. Glistenings cause light scatter.2-6

FOOTNOTES

*Testing conducted with the TECNIS SymfonyTM IOL, not TECNIS SymfonyTM Toric IOL.

**The study design was to evaluate the clinical outcomes of far, intermediate and near visual acuities of patients implanted with the
 TECNIS SymfonyTM Toric IOL (n=39). This was a 6-month, prospective, bilateral, open label clinical investigation at two sites in New Zealand. Mean value is first eye data.

†Value theoretically derived for a typical 22.0 D lens. Johnson & Johnson Vision recommends that surgeons personalize their A-constant based on their surgical techniques and equipment, experience with the lens model and postoperative results.

INDICATIONS AND IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION FOR THE TECNIS SYMFONY®AND TECNIS SYMFONY® TORIC EXTENDED RANGE OF VISION IOLs

Rx Only

INDICATIONS

The TECNIS SymfonyTM IOL, Model ZXR00, is indicated for primary implantation for the visual correction of aphakia, in adult patients with less than 1 diopter of pre-existing corneal astigmatism, in whom a cataractous lens has been removed. The TECNIS SymfonyTM IOL, Models ZXT150, ZXT225, ZXT300, and ZXT375, are indicated for primary implantation for the visual correction of aphakia and for reduction of residual refractive astigmatism in adult patients with greater than or equal to 1 diopter of preoperative corneal astigmatism, in whom a cataractous lens has been removed. These models of IOLs, ZXR00, ZXT150, ZXT225, ZXT300, and ZXT375, mitigate the effects of presbyopia by providing an extended depth of focus. Compared to an aspheric monofocal IOL, these models of IOLs provide improved intermediate and near visual acuity, while maintaining comparable distance visual acuity. These models of IOLs are intended for capsular bag placement only.

WARNINGS

Patients with any of the conditions described in the Directions for Use may not be suitable candidates for an intraocular lens because the lens may exacerbate an existing condition, may interfere with diagnosis or treatment of a condition, or may pose an unreasonable risk to the patient’s eyesight. Lenses should not be placed in the ciliary sulcus. May cause a reduction in contrast sensitivity under certain conditions, compared to an aspheric monofocal IOL; fully inform the patient of this risk before implanting the lens. Special consideration should be made in patients with macular disease, amblyopia, corneal irregularities, or other ocular disease. Inform patients to exercise special caution when driving at night or in poor visibility conditions. Some visual effects may be expected due to the lens design, including: a perception of halos, glare, or starbursts around lights under nighttime conditions. These will be bothersome or very bothersome in some people, particularly in low-illumination conditions, and on rare occasions, may be significant enough that the patient may request removal of the IOL. Rotation of the The TECNIS SymfonyTM Toric IOL away from their intended axis can reduce their astigmatic correction, and misalignment ˃30° may increase postoperative refractive cylinder. If necessary, lens repositioning should occur as early as possible prior to lens encapsulation.

PRECAUTIONS

Interpret results with caution when refracting using autorefractors or wavefront aberrometers that utilize infrared light, or when performing a duochrome test. Confirmation of refraction with maximum plus manifest refraction technique is recommended. The ability to perform some eye treatments (e.g. retinal photocoagulation) may be affected by the optical design. Target emmetropia for optimum visual performance. Care should be taken to achieve IOL centration, as lens decentration may result in a patient experiencing visual disturbances under certain lighting conditions. For the TECNIS SymfonyTM Toric IOL, variability in any preoperative surgical parameters (e.g. keratometric cylinder, incision location, surgeon’s estimated surgically induced astigmatism and biometry) can influence patient outcomes. Carefully remove all viscoelastic and do not over-inflate the capsular bag at the end of the case to prevent lens rotation.

SERIOUS ADVERSE EFFECTS

The most frequently reported serious adverse events that occurred during the clinical trial of the TECNIS SymfonyTM lens were cystoid macular edema (2 eyes, 0.7%) and surgical reintervention (treatment injections for cystoid macular edema and endophthalmitis, 2 eyes, 0.7%). No lens-related adverse events occurred during the trial.

ATTENTION
