Dense cataract removal and efficient procedure time management
Lens fragmentation of a cataract using ZEISS miLOOP
Experiencing innovative technology for fragmenting rock-hard cataracts
The ZEISS miLOOP allows you to:
- Reduce phaco energy by up to 53% for grade 3-4+ nuclear cataracts6
- Lower the surgical irrigation fluid volume used per case by up to 30%6
- Apply minimal stress to the capsule and zonules6
- Reduce procedure and post-operative treatment time7
ZEISS OVD Portfolio
ZEISS provides two different OVDs to coat the delicate ocular tissues giving you the freedom to choose between a moderate and a comprehensive solution.
Low-viscosity dispersive OVD (HPMC), providing protection of the endothelium through coated ocular tissues.
Medium-viscosity dispersive OVD, a safeguard during various surgical manoeuvres, providing a great space partition.
Dense cataract workflow challenges
After the removal of a dense cataract, patients expect to quickly and permanently regain perfect vision. However, post-operative complications like inflammation and edema can be more common after hard cataract surgery, and, longer term, issues like dislocated IOLs or dysphotopsias may occur.5,6
