USING THE SIMULATOR

Designed to help patients better understand their vision, conditions and possible treatment options, the Vision Simulator offers an in-depth guided tour of ocular anatomy, conditions and intraocular lens options.

The Vision Simulator is available online and in the Apple App Store.

DIRECTIONS

For patients seeking a comprehensive understanding of their quality of vision, possible conditions and potential treatments:

  1. Select “Vision Simulator” from the main menu.
  2. Check the box at the top to indicate the presence of astigmatism, and drag the associated slider until it reaches the proper level.
  3. Use the slider at the bottom to see how different conditions, presbyopia and cataracts affect the image.
  4. Continue dragging the slider over the IOL options to see how vision gradually improves in daytime and nighttime conditions using a standard or a TECNIS® Monofocal 1-Piece IOL.
  5. Choose different IOLs in the top corner to compare different options.

For patients looking for more information about their eyes:

  1. Select “How the Eye Works” from the main menu.
  2. Use the slider at the bottom to visualize how light goes from a normal eye to the brain and is transformed into readable images.
  3. Select any of the visual conditions under “Normal Vision”, and drag the slider to see how the light focuses differently and changes the image.

For patients looking for cataract treatment options:

  1. Select “Your IOL Options” from the main menu.
  2. View the different benefits of the various lenses in the TECNIS® Family of 1-Piece IOLs.

You can go back to the main menu at any point by clicking the main menu or home button on the simulator.

INDICATIONS AND IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION FOR TECNIS® FAMILY OF IOLs

Rx Only

TECNIS® MONOFOCAL 1-PIECE IOL
INDICATIONS

TECNIS® 1-Piece Lenses are indicated for the visual correction of aphakia in adult patients in whom a cataractous lens has been removed by extra capsular cataract extraction. These devices are intended to be placed in the capsular bag.

WARNINGS

Physicians considering lens implantation should weigh the potential risk/benefit ratio for any conditions described in the TECNIS® 1-Piece IOL Directions for Use that could increase complications or impact patient outcomes.

See Full Indications and Important Safety Information.

TECNIS® TORIC 1-PIECE IOL
INDICATIONS

The TECNIS® Toric 1-Piece Posterior Chamber Lens is indicated for the visual correction of aphakia and pre-existing corneal astigmatism of one diopter or greater in adult patients with or without presbyopia in whom a cataractous lens has been removed by phacoemulsification and who desire improved uncorrected distance vision, reduction in residual refractive cylinder, and increased spectacle independence for distance vision. The device is intended to be placed in the capsular bag.

WARNINGS

Physicians considering lens implantation should weigh the potential risk/benefit ratio for any circumstances described in the TECNIS® Toric 1-Piece IOL Directions for Use that could increase complications or impact patient outcomes. These circumstances include recurrent severe anterior or posterior segment inflammation or uveitis; surgical difficulties at the time of cataract extraction, which may increase the potential for complications (e.g., persistent bleeding, significant iris damage, uncontrolled positive pressure or significant vitreous prolapse or loss); a compromised eye due to previous trauma or developmental defects in which appropriate support of the IOL is not possible; circumstances that would result in damage to the endothelium during implantation; suspected microbial infection; or patients in whom neither the posterior capsule nor the zonules are intact enough to provide support for the IOL. Children under the age of 2 years are not suitable candidates for intraocular lenses.

See Full Indications and Important Safety Information.

TECNIS® MULTIFOCAL FAMILY OF 1-PIECE IOLs
INDICATIONS

The TECNIS® Multifocal 1-Piece intraocular lenses are indicated for primary implantation for the visual correction of aphakia in adult patients with and without presbyopia in whom a cataractous lens has been removed by phacoemulsification and who desire near, intermediate, and distance vision with increased spectacle independence. The intraocular lenses are intended to be placed in the capsular bag.

WARNINGS

Physicians considering lens implantation under any of the conditions described in the Directions for Use should weigh the potential risk/benefit ratio prior to implanting a lens. Some visual effects associated with multifocal IOLs may be expected because of the superposition of focused and unfocused images. These may include a perception of halos/glare around lights under nighttime conditions.

See Full Indications and Important Safety Information.

FOR TECNIS SYMFONY® AND TECNIS SYMFONY® TORIC EXTENDED RANGE OF VISION IOLs
INDICATIONS

The TECNIS Symfony® Extended Range of Vision IOL, model ZXR00, is indicated for primary implantation for the visual correction of aphakia, in adult patients with less than 1 diopter of pre-existing corneal astigmatism, in whom a cataractous lens has been removed. The lens mitigates the effects of presbyopia by providing an extended depth of focus. Compared to an aspheric monofocal IOL, the lens provides improved intermediate and near visual acuity, while maintaining comparable distance visual acuity. The model ZXR00 IOL is intended for capsular bag placement only. The TECNIS Symfony® Toric Extended Range of Vision IOLs, models ZXT150, ZXT225, ZXT300, and ZXT375, are indicated for primary implantation for the visual correction of aphakia and for reduction of residual refractive astigmatism in adult patients with greater than or equal to 1 diopter of preoperative corneal astigmatism, in whom a cataractous lens has been removed. The lens mitigates the effects of presbyopia by providing an extended depth of focus. Compared to an aspheric monofocal IOL, the lens provides improved intermediate and near visual acuity, while maintaining comparable distance visual acuity. The model series ZXT IOLs are intended for capsular bag placement only.

WARNINGS

Physicians considering lens implantation under any of the circumstances described in the Directions for Use should weigh the potential risk/benefit ratio as such patients may not be suitable candidates for an intraocular lens because the lens may exacerbate an existing condition, may interfere with diagnosis or treatment of a condition, or may pose an unreasonable risk to the patient’s eyesight.
