First 3D Heads-Up Cataract Surgery Performed in Asia
Date:2/26/2013

Santa Barbara, CA (PRWEB) February 26, 2013

Professor Clement C. Y. Tham, one of the most highly respected and innovative ophthalmological surgeons performed the first 3D “heads-up” cataract surgery in Asia using the TrueVision® 3D Surgical System. The first surgery, performed at the Hong Kong Eye Hospital, took place on December 12, 2012, and used the advanced TrueVision® 3D Visualization and Guidance platform for high-definition, real-time, stereoscopic microsurgery.

“We’re very glad to be the first center and the first hospital in Asia to use the 3D TrueVision® System for heads-up cataract surgery,” said Professor Tham, who is the S.H. Ho Professor of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences at The Chinese University of Hong Kong, and Honorary Chief of Service of Hong Kong Eye Hospital.

TrueVision® is a stereoscopic high-definition visualization system that displays the surgical field of view in real-time on a 3D flat-panel display in the operating room. It is used for refractive cataract, corneal, glaucoma, and retinal surgeries. The advanced technology is used to visualize, record, and playback microsurgery and to stream live stereoscopic video of the surgical field, making it an unparalleled teaching tool. The Refractive Cataract Toolset® is the first 3D computer-guided application for the correction of astigmatism and advanced IOL placement used to potentially improve surgical efficiencies and patient outcomes.

Prof. Tham, who performed 8 cases over the course of the day, said using the TrueVision® 3D Surgical System provided distinct advantages in visualization and ergonomics in cataract cases.

“I performed cataract surgeries by looking at the TrueVision 3D display without being tethered to the optical eyepiece of the microscope,” said Professor Tham. “One advantage is that I could operate in a much more relaxed posture. This benefit may be even more obvious during m
