CE approval

Ziemer Ophthalmic Systems has revealed that its FEMTO LDV Z8 has received CE approval for clear corneal and arcuate incisions, capsulotomy, lens fragmentation and all previously covered cornea and presbyopia applications.

The system is equipped with a unique adaptive pulse management (APM) technology, which enables the user to adapt the pulse energy to the surgical requirement. Additionally, the company reports that the high-end and in-house developed OCT allows visualization of the anterior segment and the entire lens for an optimized surgical planning process.

Intraoperative ­visualization

Available from ZEISS is a surgical microscope with integrated intraoperative OCT, the OPMI LUMERA 700 and RESCAN 700.

The company reports that this system provides surgeons with the highest quality intraoperative OCT visualization of the eye without interruption of surgery. Additionally, it is claimed that surgeons are able to see transparent structures of the eye during surgery with this device and can monitor progress during the procedure and verify clinical results in the OR.

Dr Susanne Binder (Professor and Chair, Department of Ophthalmology, Rudolf Foundation Clinic, Teaching Hospital of the Medical University of Vienna, Austria) commented, "With the new device from ZEISS we have for the first time a complete integration of the OCT into the microscope."

Mini-incision injector

Rayner Intraocular Lenses has announced the launch of its new injector, RaySert PLUS.

"Much like the earlier 2.7 mm Rayner injectors and the later 2.4 mm Raysert injectors the new 2.2 mm RaySert PLUS has a very easy and simple loading mechanism," confirmed Mr Allon Barsom (consultant ophthalmic surgeon specialist in cornea, cataract and laser eye surgery, at Luton and Dunstable University Hospital, UCL Partners, UK). "The one handed injector frees up the non-dominant hand for counter fixation to facilitate a controlled and gentle wound assisted delivery of the lens into the capsular bag."
