Bausch + Lomb and Technolas™ Perfect Vision Introduce VICTUS™ Femtosecond Laser Platform at 2011 ESCRS Meeting

eps, which can create variability. Early published data suggest that Laser Refractive Cataract Surgery (LRCS), as offered by the VICTUS platform, may allow physicians to create a more precise, controllable and centered capsulotomy (incision that allows access to the cataract-clouded lens).  LRCS may also allow for less phaco energy to be generated during lens fragmentation, improve intraocular lens placement and potentially enhance patient outcomes and experience.(1-3)

"The VICTUS Femtosecond Laser Platform is the realization of our technical work and the culmination of our partnership with Bausch + Lomb," said Kristian Hohla, PhD, chief executive officer of Technolas Perfect Vision. "At the upcoming ESCRS meeting we look forward to presenting the new platform and providing demonstrations of the technology so that ophthalmic surgeons can experience its potential for themselves."

The VICTUS platform, along with early clinical data, will also be presented in October at the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) Annual Meeting in Orlando, Florida, USA and at the Asia-Pacific Association of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons (APACRS) in Seoul, South Korea.  

About Cataract Surgery  

An estimated 20 million aging baby boomers and seniors have cataracts. Over 15 million cataract surgeries are performed worldwide each year. A cataract is a clouding on the normally clear lens in the eye. Cataract surgery is a simple procedure during which the natural lens in the patient's eye is surgically replaced with an intraocular lens.

About Femtosecond Lasers

Femtosecond lasers emit optical pulses of extremely short duration in the domain of femtoseconds, as short as one-quadrillionth of a second. These ultra-short pulses are too brief to transfer heat or shock to the material being cut and can make surgical incisions with extreme precision.
