Johnson & Johnson Vision has announced the availability of TECNIS Synergy™ IOL for the treatment of cataracts. The product is now commercially available in Australia, New Zealand and many parts of Europe including the UK, France, Germany, Italy and Spain. The main advantages of this new lens are that it gives broad range of continuous vision covering from distance to 33cm, it eliminates the visual gaps present in trifocal and other multifocal technology, offering patients the freedom to focus within the range, it continues to deliver superior performance in low-light conditions, and violet-filtering technology demonstrates reduction in halo intensity for tasks like night driving.
Dr. Francesco Carones, Medical Director and Physician CEO of Carones Vision, Milan, said: "The TECNIS Synergy™ IOL is a game-changer. I am delighted with the results my patients have had. With some lenses, patients can find it hard to focus on objects at certain points, but the continuous vision provided by TECNIS Synergy™ IOL smooths out those visual gaps. Best of all, the lens continues to perform, even as light dwindles."

Tom Frinzi, Worldwide President, Surgical, Johnson & Johnson Vision, said: "As ophthalmic pioneers, we took on the challenge to develop an IOL that would give patients the clear, continuous range of vision they want, from far to near, day to night. Today, thanks to the ingenuity of our team of researchers and scientists, we stay true to our legacy of innovation with the introduction of TECNIS Synergy™ IOL, our most advanced IOL solution yet, which we believe will redefine the industry standard for IOL quality and performance."
