Advancing Automated Capsulotomy
Improving precision and efficiency of cataract surgery with ZEPTO® – a convenient and cost-effective capsulotomy platform
sponsored by Centricity Vision
Centricity Vision understands that operational efficiency is essential to serving the greatest number of patients without compromising quality of care. In addition, the changing landscape of cataract surgery has increased the demand for precision, in particular for patients receiving advanced technology lenses. When it comes to the key step of cataract surgery – creating the anterior capsulotomy – approaches that were once considered “good enough” are now obsolete, as any lack of precision at each step of a cataract procedure can impact patients’ visual outcomes and satisfaction, and – ultimately – the success of surgery.
And that’s why Centricity Vision – a technology-focused company that is continuously innovating to help surgeons achieve clinical excellence and improve patient outcomes – recently launched its next generation ZEPTO.
Long-term visual benefits of cataract surgery are dependent on the overall stability and position of the intraocular lens implant. ZEPTO’s unique microsurgical technology supports more effective positioning of the IOL within the capsular bag using precise, strong, routinely centered and automated capsulotomies that benefit from a 360-degree IOL overlap for long-term stability. The dual benefit of being able to routinely center the IOL on the patient’s visual axis and to create an evenly placed 360-degree overlap with the IOL doesn’t just deliver the best possible visual outcomes, it also decreases postoperative adverse events.
And it is fast. ZEPTO is able to consistently deliver capsulotomies in just 4 milliseconds. What’s more, it can be easily integrated into the existing surgical workflow; indeed, the patient and the surgeon remain together throughout the process, which improves workflow efficiency. Imagine all this at a fraction of the cost of a femtosecond laser.
The next generation of ZEPTO includes over 16 newly enhanced features for improved usability and even more consistent capsulotomies for precise surgical outcomes. The company reports that physicians include ZEPTO in their premium IOL or refractive astigmatism-correcting packages. Centricity Vision is committed to introducing additional product enhancements and new products – some of which were first shown at the recent 2021 edition of the AAO meeting in New Orleans, USA.
