Zepto Cataract surgery is the latest advancement in automated cataract surgery. “Zepto Capsulotomy Device” was developed around a decade ago. The device is disposable, handheld, and attached to a state of the art console. It is made of Nitinol alloy, which can be inserted through an almost 2 mm incision of the cornea.
ZEPTO LASER CATARACT SURGERY
Cataract of the eye is a normal part of aging, which results in a slowly progressive decrease in vision, especially in people older than sixty years of age. The only way to get rid of a cataract, and to restore sight, is to surgically remove the natural lens of the eye, and replace it with an artificial one.
Cataract surgery has become increasingly common and safe, given the rapid advances in technology over the last two decades.
Zepto Cataract surgery is the latest advancement in automated cataract surgery. “Zepto Capsulotomy Device” was developed around a decade ago. The device is disposable, handheld, and attached to a state of the art console. It is made of Nitinol alloy, which can be inserted through an almost 2 mm incision of the cornea. It uses a built-in vacuum and fast, low-energy pulses of direct current to perform a perfectly centered and circular capsulotomy, each time.
WHAT IS ZEPTO LASER CATARACT TREATMENT?
The Zepto Pulse cataract device is a disposable handheld device that is controlled by a very sophisticated computerized console. It uses fast, low-energy pulses of direct current to perform a perfectly circular capsulotomy, each time. The device also has a built-in vacuum that helps the surgeon align the capsulotomy perfectly, resulting in perfect centration of the capsulotomy and consequently, better visual outcomes.
This is because the IOL gets aligned directly with the eye’s visual axis with a well-centered, circular capsulotomy, resulting in better, sharper vision. This also reduces the incidence of haloes, glare, and ghost images.
Who is the ideal patient for Zepto Laser Cataract Treatment?
Actually any patient who is getting cataract surgery is a suitable cataract for Zepto laser cataract surgery, but it is particularly suited to the following:
Patients choosing premium Intraocular Lenses, like Toric IOLs, Multifocal IOLs, etc who want perfect vision without any side effects.
Complex or complicated cataract cases like advanced cataract and young patients with congenital cataract, small pupils, trauma, and corneal opacities
CASES WHERE ZEPTO IS RECOMMENDED
- One-Eyed Patients
- White Cataracts
- Hard Brown Cataracts
- Corneal Opacities
- Subluxated Cataracts
- Cataracts in Children
BENEFITS OF ZEPTO LASER SURGERY
- Precision and safety
- Sharper vision with less incidence of haloes, glare, and ghost images
- Low-cost cataract
- Better results in complex cases like intumescent cataract, children with cataract, subluxated lens (in which the capsular bag is itself not stable due to trauma or disease), and calcification of the capsular bag
- Reduced surgical time
- Predictable results
- Suitable for patients with corneal opacities, small pupils, and co-morbidities
