Centurion active fluidics enable high vacuum rates

AMSTERDAM — An early look at active fluidics and high vacuum rate of a new cataract removal system launched here showed no safety issues and a stable anterior chamber, according to a presenter.“Traditional phaco uses gravity to drive the inflow of fluid into the eye. The Centurion Vision System (Alcon) uses active fluidics to proactively maintain the surgeon-set target IOP,” David Allen, FRCOphth, said at the European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons meeting. Even though high vacuum rates are possible in traditional gravity systems, they are only achieved when (Read more...)
