FDA approves one-of-a-kind IOL with extended range of vision
It has been a history-making week for the ophthalmic world, and the FDA approval of the first IOL with extended range of vision (Tecnis Symfony IOL, Abbott Medical Optics) has only added one more reason for celebration.

The novel IOL is the only lens of its kind to be approved in the United States for providing continuous extended-depth-of-focus and visual acuity (VA) following cataract surgery, according to the company. The lens also reduces presbyopia effects by giving patients near vision, while having halos and glare incidence rates that are comparable to a monofocal IOL, the company reported.

The FDA approval also includes a toric version of the lens for patients with astigmatism.
