The CENTURION Vision System

The Only Intelligent Phacoemulsification Technology Designed to Optimize Cataract Surgery

Technology Overview and Unique Features
The CENTURION Vision System sets a new standard of performance in cataract surgery by combining multiple, intelligent technologies and key features to provide surgeons control and improved efficiency during the cataract phaco procedure.

The CENTURION Vision System is the only intelligent phaco technology that optimizes every moment of the cataract procedure. The new system automatically and continuously adapts to changing conditions within the eye, providing more consistent IOP (Intraocular Pressure) and greater anterior chamber stability during each step of the surgery. The CENTURION® Vision System places optimized energy technology at the surgeon's fingertips through enhanced fluidic management and surgical precision.1

Intelligent Technologies
Active Fluidics Technology is an automated system that optimizes anterior chamber stability by allowing surgeons to proactively set and maintain target IOP within the eye during the cataract procedure.1 This provides enhanced IOP control during the procedure in comparison to gravity fluidics and fixed pressure irrigation; reduces surges due to occlusion breaks; maintains a consistent IOP; and eliminates the need to manually adjust fluid pressure.

Balanced Energy Technology enhances phaco efficiency through proven OZil Intelligent Phaco and the INTREPID Balanced Tip probe. This increases efficiency and control, while reducing energy levels and accommodating surgeon settings for aspiration and vacuum by keeping the fragmented lens material at the shearing plane for emulsification.2,3

Applied Integration allows the CENTURION Vision System to be used seamlessly with multiple cataract surgical technologies, such as the LuxORTM Q-VUE surgical microscope platforms and the LenSX Laser from Alcon, to create a comprehensive cataract surgery suite designed to minimize variability at every step of the procedure.

The CENTURION Vision System also offers surgeons an improved ergonomic design, wireless footswitch and intuitive touch-screen display.
