LONDON, July 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Optimax, the UK's longest-established vision correction specialist, are pleased to announce availability of Tecnis Symfony lens treatments at their UK clinics.
The advanced new lens can provide high levels of independence from reading glasses, and is the first of its kind to offer a smooth, continuous range of vision, from near to far.
Optimax Medical Director Mr Amir Hamid is one of a select group of eye surgeons in Europe to be granted early use of the Symfony Lens ahead of its worldwide release.
"This is the lens that refractive surgeons have been waiting for. It differs from a multifocal implant with three points of focus, and works like a zoom lens on a camera, providing a smooth range of clear vision. I am sure it is going to benefit an enormous number of people," he said.
Mr Hamid has now performed more than 20 Symfony treatments, and patients are reporting that they are delighted with their new vision.
"It was amazing to be able to read number plates at a distance and to recognise birds without having to search for my glasses…I was absolutely gobsmacked and delighted. Now I have 20/20 vision and it is very liberating," said Nicola Ellen, 60, treated in June at Optimax Maidstone.
