Tecnis Symfony IOL

Dr. Iskander and San Antonio Eye Specialists is excited to be one of the first practices in San Antonio to offer the Tecnis Symfony® and Symfony® Toric Lens Implants, developed by Abbott Pharmaceuticals. The Tecnis Symfony® Lens is designed to reduce or eliminate the need for reading glasses or bifocals after undergoing cataract surgery, something more Baby Boomers are seeking with today’s advanced technology. The Tecnis Symfony® lens is comprised of a multifocal lens design, which has multiple power rings that help patients see at various distances. In the past, the issue with multifocal lenses has been a glare and halo effect at night, and patients would have to hold objects at an exact distance in order to see them clearly. The Tecnis Symfony® design allows for an extended range of vision, providing a new option for patients that may result in better vision across a broader range of distances. This new lens significantly reduces any glare and halo effect, producing approximately the same amount of night vision issues as monofocal lenses (almost none).

Symfony Toric Lens

Abbott Pharmaceuticals also developed the Symfony® Toric lens, which can help patients with astigmatism reduce or eliminate their need for reading glasses or bifocals after cataract surgery. For the first time, patients with a higher degree of corneal astigmatism are able to correct their astigmatism as well as reduce or eliminate their need for reading glasses or bifocals. Dr. Iskander is the first surgeon in south Texas to implant the newest generation toric intraocular lenses by Johnson and Johnson.

“I was scared to have cataract surgery after I was diagnosed by my optometrist. After going to several ophthalmologist in town, I decided to go with Dr. Iskander of San Antonio Eye Specialists because I felt most comfortable with him. He took the time to explain the difference between modern cataract removal and old fashion cataract surgery like my mother had. After undergoing laser-assisted cataract removal, I can see clearly again! I also chose a premium lens implant which has freed my from reading glasses and bifocals for nearly all activities! Thanks again Dr. Iskander!”

"I was very pleased with my experience with Dr. Nader G. Iskander.It was good to be treated with professionalism and care. When I say the doctor and all the other employees of the Doctors Care made me feel that I was in safe hands and even made me smile when I left, then you can believe they are the best. I am truly grateful and highly recommended San Antonio Eye Specialists."

- Lina Y., Cataract Patient

I highly recommend Dr. Nader Iskander and his staff for anyone who is in need of professional vision care servicies. Dr. Iskander performed successful Cataract surgery on me for both of my eyes during 2013 when I was 64 years old. My vision improved immediately to 20/20. There was no pain or side effects. I go back once a year for an annual eye exam with Dr. Iskander. I am happy to say that I have had no problems with my vision since my Cataract surgery. I just had my annual eye exam with Dr. Iskander at SA Eye Specialists and I am glad to say my vision is still 20/20 at 70 years old.
