Advanced Techniques in Cataract & Refractive Surgery

sponsored by Leica Microsystems

Now available on demand

In this webinar, we will present content and videos on several advanced techniques. Topics will be covered such as utilizing the Purkinje light images during cataract surgery, capsulotomy, and implant centration to produce the best long-term stability, including discussion on the best centration location method (visual axis vs. pupil center). Surgeons will explain how Leica microscopes aid in procedures such as the centration of Multifocal IOLs and corneal inlays such as Kamra and Lenticular Grafts used in LIKE procedures. The centration of Toric ICLs will be discussed and lastly, how Leica microscopes outperform competitive microscopes during lenticule in SMILE procedures.

Learning Objectives

  • The importance of, as well as methods to, centering both the capsulotomy and the implant for 360 degrees of capsule overlap for long-term implant stability, as well as how to use a Leica microscope’s light sources to utilize the Purkinje images during cataract surgery.
  • Centration of Toric ICLs, Multifocal IOLs and Corneal Inlays such as Kamra and Lenticule grafts.
  • SMILE lenticule dissection using Leica microscopes vs competitive microscopes.
