We also have premium lens options such as the ReSTOR® Intraocular Lens
that correct AcrySof® Toric Intraocular Lens
that corrects for . The latest premium lens technology is the Symfony Lens
which provides high-quality continuous vision so you can see clearly at near, intermediate and far-away distances, and points in between, while wearing glasses less. Extended Range of Vision Symfony lenses are available in both a Non-Toric version and a Toric version for patients with astigmatism.
Developed by Silicon Valley-based OptiMedica Corp., CATALYS is a new FDA market cleared medical device that features a state-of-the-art laser, advanced 3D imaging, and many other innovative features that can bring numerous benefits to Edina Eye Clinic patients.
Every eye has a unique size and shape. CATALYS' advanced 3D imaging technology builds a 3D map of each eye and tailors the treatment to that map. This enables Edina Eye Clinic surgeons to create a customized treatment plan that matches the uniqueness of each eye.
Next, Edina Eye Clinic surgeons use CATALYS to create a circular opening for accessing and removing the cataract. Clinical studies have shown that this opening is approximately 10 times more accurate when performed with CATALYS than what is achievable by hand.1,2CATALYS then softens and breaks up the hard cataract into tiny pieces, allowing for gentler, easier cataract removal.3
Depending on the patient's pre-operative vision and desired visual result, Edina Eye Clinic surgeons may recommend a tailored treatment plan that could include creating ultra-precise laser incisions in the cornea and a specific clear lens type, such as a multi-focal lens. This tailored treatment may reduce a patient's need for glasses or contacts after surgery.
