Beaumont Doctor's Invention Improves Cataract Surgery Outcomes
Date:8/26/2008

ROYAL OAK, Mich., Aug. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- The Beaumont Commercialization Center, a medical technology development company within Beaumont Hospitals, is making an innovative ophthalmic lens support system available for licensing.

Timothy Page, M.D., a Beaumont ophthalmologist, developed the advanced lens support system to stabilize the lens before or during cataract surgery, thereby preventing the movement of lens fragments into the back of the eye.

Each year, approximately 10 million people worldwide have cataract surgery. Elements of the eye, such as vitreous body or the lens capsule, can shift as the cataract is removed. Vitreous body, a clear gel that fills the eyeball behind the lens, can move into the front of the eye when the lens is not fully supported. This movement can lead to complications such as capsule tears, zonular dialysis, and dislocation of the lens into the back of the eye, requiring the patient to have an additional surgery by a retina specialist.

"I am excited to be able to bring something like this to market," said Dr. Page, who has been in practice for 14 years. "The system is an important development in minimizing risks and complications that can occur in such a common procedure." Dr. Page has offices in Troy and Birmingham, Michigan.

Other techniques with various apparatus do exist, such as the use of a net or levitation using the tip of a probe. They are not ideal for various reasons. A net can block the needed removal of lens fragments while the extremely small diameter of a probe makes it a challenge for even experienced surgeons to balance and elevate lens fragments.

This new lens support system consists of a cannula and a piston. By means of the piston, the lens support is movable to contracted and expanded configurations.
