Santa Barbara, CA (PRWEB) November 12, 2013
TrueVision® 3D Surgical, the world’s leader in 3D visualization and guidance applications for microsurgery, announced the release of the TrueGuide™ Computer-Guided Surgery system. TrueGuide™ provides digital guidance for astigmatism correction and advanced lens placement during cataract surgery.
TrueVision will present TrueGuide™ at the 117th Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, November 16-19, 2013, Booth 4512 and Booth 2516.
Cataract surgery is the most commonly performed procedure in the world. In the US alone nearly three million procedures are performed each year. Of those three million procedures, over 70% of patients will have astigmatism greater than 0.5 diopters, which can require the use of corrective eyewear post-operatively when left untreated.
Astigmatism can be corrected during cataract surgery using different methods, including the use of toric lens implants and/or performing corrective incisions in the eye (AK/LRIs). The efficacy of these options is directly related to alignment and placement.
TrueGuide is the first and only computer-guided surgery system with Dynamic Optimization, which matches patient conditions to available treatment options specific to surgeon parameters and tendencies in real-time during surgery. This guidance assists surgeons in targeting the lowest residual astigmatism based on multiple variables with toric IOL alignment, limbal relaxing incision, incision placement and intraocular lens centration.
TrueGuide integrates with multiple diagnostic devices through the TrueCapture™ software for accurate pre-operative analysis and surgical planning. TrueGuide software will bring optimal patient efficiency to cataract surgical practices, as well as provide precise data for use in the TrueVision® computer-guidance surgical a
