Cataract Surgery Incorporating Femtosecond Laser Technology, 3D Visualization Systems, and Extended Femto Bed Capabilities
This paper will highlight our cataract surgery operating system, the integration of a 3D visualization system and the capabilities to perform all aspects of cataract surgery in the femtosecond laser bed.
We incorporated femtosecond laser technology and 3D visualization systems into our operating room. By doing this, we hope to create a more immersive operating environment for our surgeons and surgical staff. These technologies, coupled with peripheral attachments to the femtosecond laser bed, will make for a more efficient and safer operating experience.
Incorporation of femtosecond laser technology has allowed more precise and repeatable incision control. The lens fragmentation capability of femtosecond laser technology has allowed us, on multiple occasions, to use zero phacoemulsion energy during procedures. The TrueVision 3D visualization system has improved operating room communications. The heads-up aspect of the 3D system has led to decreased surgeon neck pain and fatigue.
Through the incorporation of the VICTUS femtosecond laser, TrueVision 3D visualization system and peripheral attachments to the femtosecond laser bed; we have created an immersive surgical environment. Our ability to perform all aspects of cataract surgery in the femtosecond laser bed has improved our efficiency and operating room communications. The lens fragmentation from the femtosecond laser has allowed us, on multiple occasions to perform cataract extraction with zero phacoemulsion energy.
