What’s New

Dr. Murrell has been implanting a new multifocal intraocular lens (IOL) by the Johnson & Johnson Tecnic Company call the Symfony IOL. It is the latest generation of Multifocal IOL’s.

It is similar to the progressive/no line glasses that you might be wearing. The Symfony IOL has several advantages over older model IOL’s.

  • Less Chromatic Aberation (makes images sharper and crisper)
  • Greater Contrast Sensitivity (allows you to see more distinctly)
  • Gives a Full Range of Vision (distance, intermediate and near)
  • Can reduce astigmatism (irregular cornea)

The Symfony IOL also has a Toric version which can reduce astigmatism (irregular cornea). This makes the Symfony IOL Toric the only Multifocal IOL which can give the patient both a Full Range of Vision and Correct Astigmatism. This is the most advanced IOL currently available. Dr. Murrell feels that this IOL is awesome and is very excited that he can offer this to his cataract patients.
