The TECNIS Symfony® IOL mitigates the effects of presbyopia so you can empower your patients to see clearly across the full range of vision.

Recommended IOL Insertion:

  • UNFOLDER® Platinum 1 Series Delivery System
  • UNFOLDER® Emerald Delivery System
  • One Series Delivery System
Tecnis Symfony


Delivering excellent uncorrected visual acuity (VA) at all distances,1 the TECNIS Symfony® IOL allows your patients to see clearly across a full range of vision.

Defocus Curve1

6-Month Data, Bilaterally Implanted Subjects

  • Sustained 20/25 or better mean VA through 1.5 D
  • Sustained 20/40 or better mean VA through 2.5 D
  • Increase of 1.0 D range of vision throughout the defocus curve


Rather than splitting light into distinct focal points, the TECNIS Symfony® 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



Deliver the visual quality that allows your patients with and without astigmatism to see clearly in any lighting condition.

  • High-quality distance vision in the presence of astigmatism2
  • Pupil-independent performance enables optimal performance in any lighting condition1
  • Low overall spectacle wear1

The TECNIS Symfony® IOL delivers 20/20 or better vision through 1.5 D of astigmatism.1

85% of patients wear glasses none or a little bit of the time.1

By combining a unique diffractive pattern with achromatic technology, the TECNIS Symfony® 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

Degree of Difficulty with Visual Symptoms1

Percentage of Eyes, Non-Directed Reports, 6 Months Postoperative


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



Unlike another leading IOL, TECNIS® IOL material is not associated with glistenings,3-7which can inhibit your patients’ vision. Glistenings cause light scatter, which can result in a reduction in image contrast.4-8
