After her TECNIS procedure Niliva Felipe feels like she is 22 again and her vision is better than 20/20.

Multifocal lens implant procedures are so advanced and the results so dramatic, especially with the Symfony lens. I can’t imagine why a patient might not choose this procedure.

Christenbury Eye Center now offers a new implantable multifocal lens by Abbott Medical Laboratories, the TECNIS® Symfony Extended Range of Vision iOL. Multifocal lens implants have been available for years; however, the TECNIS Symfony implantable lens is an upgraded technology providing even greater benefits. This new lens’ multiple benefits include high-quality vision at all distances and astigmatism correction. Night vision and reading vision in dim illumination is also improved. The implant procedures at Christenbury Eye Center are performed by Dr. Jonathan Christenbury and Dr. Casey Mathys.

In a 3-month study by the manufacturer, patients said they would choose the TECNIS Symfony implant procedure again. At Christenbury Eye Center, patients say in their testimonials, they are very pleased with this life-changing procedure.

One patient, Niliva Felipe, says, “I spend a lot of time in front of computers…reading, studying and working on my Ph.D. Today, [after TECNIS] I cannot tell you enough that I have bionic eyes. I swear by them…. I feel like I’m 22 again and my vision is better than 20/20.”

Patients normally choose a multifocal lens implant procedure to eliminate their reading glasses or bifocals. The TECNIS Symfony lens offers vision near and far and all distances in between.

Cataract patients also choose a multifocal lens implant. The implant is performed at the same time as the cataract removal surgery. Post procedure they are not only cataract free, but they no longer require reading glasses or bifocals or the need for future cataract surgeries.

“Why would anyone wear glasses at all?” says Dr. Jonathan Christenbury, Medical Director at Christenbury Eye Center. “Multifocal lens implant procedures are so advanced and the results so dramatic, especially with the Symfony lens. I can’t imagine why a patient might not choose this procedure.”

Dr. Christenbury’s passion for this procedure results from personal experience. After he received a lens implant in both eyes, his vision continues to be a perfect 20/20 years later. He continues to stay on top of the latest technology in this vastly improving field to bring the best options to his patients.

The TECNIS Symfony lens is now available at Christenbury Eye Center. If you would like to see if you qualify for a multifocal lens procedure, contact Christenbury Eye Center at (877) 702-2020 or visit the Christenbury Eye Center website to request a free consultation.
