Local Eye Doctor Makes History with New Implant

  Email   Print

A local eye doctor makes history. Craig McCabe, MD, surgically implanted Tennessee's first Symfony multi-focal lens in the eye of a Murfreesboro woman who was suffering from cataracts.

Dr. McCabe told NewRadio WGNS . . .


This new lens treats presbyopia (age-related long-sightedness), and is implanted into the eye during a normal cataract operation.

In most cases recovery time is minimal, with patients able to return to their usual routine just 24 hours after surgery.


The person who received the implant last week says it totaly corrected her vision issues . . .

Unlike traditional multifocal lenses, the high-tech lens that Dr. McCabe implanted, has no glares or halos with the Symfony lens, no reduction in contrast sensitivity, and it has a special defraction grating, making it similar to a traditional lens implant, but with the added benefit of a reading prescription.

For more information on the new Symfony multi-focal lens, contact McCabe Vision Center at (615) 904-9024 or mccabevisioncenter.com.
