What are the benefits of VICTUS Laser Cataract Surgery?
A team from Bausch and Lomb visited Centre for Sight to film Femtosecond Laser Cataract Surgery for a video that will be presented at the AAO (American Academy of Ophthalmology) later this year. The purpose of the filming is to show how the laser benefits the surgeon, as well as the patient, in the surgical environment.
The VICTUS Laser platform has already shown that it can replicate the same exact precision over and over again with accuracy of a thousandth of a millimeter - therefore removing human error! The laser also performs perfect controlled incisions in the cornea and the cataract lens; reducing the amount of time the surgeon operates on the eye and risk of infection.
Laser cataract surgery therefore benefits the surgeon as the platform produces quicker, repeatable, highly accurate surgery to standards that they would ever never achieve on their own. The patient benefits when the laser used in the right hands, because the platform makes a already safe procedure even safer!
