New fluidics concept

June 24, 2009

Oertli has developed a new phaco tip, easyTip2.2mm, based on the design of the CO-MICS 2. It uses a new fluidics concept with a high vacuum setting and a wide infusion path, creating a strong axially directed flow.

Efficient phaco emulsification requires good holdability and when using traditional phaco tips a compromise has to be found between chamber stability, which improves at low vacuum settings and holdability. The easyTip2.2mm is designed to shift the vacuum limit towards higher values with strong chamber stability.

The bevel angle of the tip maximises the area of the opening and this also increases holdability.

Look out for a more indepth profile about the new easyPhaco technology in the July/August issue of Ophthalmology Times Europe.
