Heads-up 3-D visualization system offers similar safety, efficacy as traditional microscope

A heads-up 3-D visualization system had similar complication rates and duration of surgery as a traditional binocular microscope for cataract surgery, according to a study.
“The study demonstrated that heads-up cataract surgery through a 3-D visualization display has similar safety and efficiency to the gold standard surgical microscope. Using this visualization approach, surgeons maintain a more flexible body posture (without the need for the surgeon to rotate his/her neck or torso), making surgery more comfortable and avoiding occupational-related injuries,” study co-author
