Surgeons sharing their experience

"In addition, being familiar with the CT LUCIA 621P from experience with it in our private practices, we believed that it offered a number of characteristics that would make it a very attractive choice in the setting of a developing country where continuity of care can be poor"

Dr. Rüdiger Schmid FEBO

Several benefits of a preloaded IOL during intraoperative handling were detected, when implanting the CT LUCIA as one of two IOLs used in a recent comparative study.
Shorter unfolding times, easier handling and faster centration during IOL delivery, are some of the advantages noticed during this clinical trial.

    The data is taken from a simulation. The transferability of the results of such a simulation to patients with an actual implanted intraocular lenses has not yet been scientifically proven. Whether the simulated impressions correspond to the actual visual impressions must be clarified in future invasive studies.

    The majority of trained ZEISS miLOOP surgeons report a perceived reduction in overall procedure time (internal user survey, n=279, Iantech Data Analytics 20190708 PPT, data on file). Furthermore, ZEISS miLOOP usually results less trauma to capsular bag and zonules (see source 2) thereby potentially reducing the need for additional post-operative treatment (see source 4). Additionally, ZEISS miLOOP may reduce the likelihood of needing time-consuming post-operative treatments: One of major causes for endothelial cell loss in cataracts with increased density is the amount of phaco energy emitted into the eye during surgery (see sources 5,6,7,8,9). Thus, the ability to significantly reduce the overall phaco power by using ZEISS miLOOP (see source 2) may decrease the number of related complications that need post-operative treatments.
