Today, patients needing cataract surgery want more from their visual outcome. They want to know what they can expect from their results, minimal halos and glare and most of all, improved vision at all distances. That’s why Stahl Vision is proud to be one of the first in the region to offer the TECNIS Symfony Lens – the first and only presbyopia-correcting extended depth of focus lens.

The FDA approved this intraocular lens (IOL) that provides improved vision at near, intermediate, and far distances with less incidence of halo and glare post-operatively than other lens options.

Results from clinical-trials show the Tecnis Symfony IOL not only has a low occurrence of nighttime glare and halos similar to that of a standard monofocal lens while also providing continuous vision at all ranges without any drop-offs in between. In fact, 97% of patients in the trial indicated that they would elect to have the lens implanted again.

Dr. Stahl and Dr. Knowles offer a full range of vision correction procedures and work closely with every patient to determine the option best for them.

A new study finds contact lens (CL) users who chose to have LASIK were more satisfied with their vision a year after the surgery, and even more satisfied after two and even three years, according to Francis Price Jr., MD, and others with the Cornea Research Foundation of America. The study is the first to directly compare satisfaction rates of CL wearers (n=819) with those who opt for LASIK (n=694). Some key findings were: The proportion expressing strong satisfaction with CLs decreased from 63% at the start of the study to 54% at year three. Conversely, 88% of former CL users and 77% of former spectacle users reported being strongly satisfied with LASIK at year three, consistent with the high satisfaction levels at years one and two.
