    Perfecting art of cataract surgery with guidance technologies

     

    Other systems

    Bausch + Lomb is developing the Spectrus unit, which is another intraoperative guidance system that is similar to the Callisto.

    “Cataract surgery continues to evolve,” Dr. Weinstock concluded. “The femtosecond laser is not the only component of interest regarding the outcomes. All of these devices are helping to achieve better outcomes for our patients. All technologies must continue to be safety-and-outcome driven.

    “Automation with lasers and guidance is the future of cataract surgery. The devices need to be integrated so that the procedure is more seamless and there is better throughput in the operating room. However, attention must be paid to efficiency, economy of scale, and cost effectiveness,” he added.
