Device Technologies launch Capsulaser in Australia and NZ

CAPSULaser Available in Australia & New Zealand

We are delighted to announce the immediate availability of CAPSULaser in Australia & New Zealand through our business partners Device Technologies

Device Technologies has introduced CAPSULaser Selective Laser Capsulotomy (SLC) to enable cataract surgeons to perform highly accurate and consistent capsulotomies in less than one third of a second, ensuring precise size, circularity and position.

In addition, the resultant capsulotomy provides greater elasticity and strength compared to a manual capsulotomy (1).

“A significant advantage of the CAPSULaser system is its seamless integration into the existing cataract workflow and its low procedure cost,” Device Technologies business development manager Mr Mark Altman said.

“The system connects directly to the operating room microscope thus eliminating the need to move the patient or requiring additional theatre space, allowing surgeons to perform laser assisted cataract procedures in an efficient and cost-effective manner.”

CAPSULaser provides 100% free floating 360° capsulotomies due to its ability to deliver laser energy in a continuous manner, this eliminates the issue of irregular or “postage stamp capsulotomies” that can occur with other laser-assisted cataract systems reliant on pulsed laser energy.
