Cataract Refractive Diagnostics

The Verion® Image Guided System allows surgeons to create a clear image and plan for cataract refractive surgery.

Designed to help you consistently achieve your cataract refractive target, the Verion® Image Guided System allows you to create a blueprint of a customized procedure for each patient and use tracking overlays to optimize incision and IOL alignment.

The ORA™ System with VerifEye+&trade Technology provides a guide and validation for cataract refractive surgery.

The ORA System with VerifEye+ Technology empowers decision making in the OR with intraoperative data validation in your ocular. It provides continuous assessment of your patient’s eye, allowing for highly accurate refractive measurements.

Cataract Refractive Diagnostics by Alcon are helping to close the gap between LASIK and cataract outcomes.

VERION® Reference Unit and VERION® Digital Marker

CAUTION: Federal (USA) law restricts this device to sale by, or on the order of, a physician.

INTENDED USES: The VERION® Reference Unit is a preoperative measurement device that captures and utilizes a high-resolution reference image of a patient's eye. In addition, the VERION® Reference Unit provides pre-operative surgical planning functions to assist the surgeon with planning cataract surgical procedures. The VERION® Reference Unit also supports the export of the reference image, preoperative measurement data, and surgical plans for use with the VERION® Digital Marker and other compatible devices through the use of a USB memory stick. The VERION® Digital Marker links to compatible surgical microscopes to display concurrently the reference and microscope images, allowing the surgeon to account for lateral and rotational eye movements. In addition, details from the VERION® Reference Unit surgical plan can be overlaid on a computer screen or the physician's microscope view.

CONTRAINDICATIONS: The following conditions may affect the accuracy of surgical plans prepared with the VERION® Reference Unit: a pseudophakic eye, eye fixation problems, a non-intact cornea, or an irregular cornea. In addition, patients should refrain from wearing contact lenses during the reference measurement as this may interfere with the accuracy of the measurements. The following conditions may affect the proper functioning of the VERION® Digital Marker: changes in a patient's eye between preoperative measurement and surgery, an irregular elliptic limbus (e.g., due to eye fixation during surgery, and bleeding or bloated conjunctiva due to anesthesia). In addition, the use of eye drops that constrict sclera vessels before or during surgery should be avoided.

WARNINGS: Only properly trained personnel should operate the VERION® Reference Unit and VERION® Digital Marker. Use only the provided medical power supplies and data communication cable. Power supplies for the VERION® Reference Unit and the VERION® Digital Marker must be uninterruptible. Do not use these devices in combination with an extension cord. Do not cover any of the component devices while turned on. The VERION® Reference Unit uses infrared light. Unless necessary, medical personnel and patients should avoid direct eye exposure to the emitted or reflected beam.

PRECAUTIONS: To ensure the accuracy of VERION® Reference Unit measurements, device calibration and the reference measurement should be conducted in dimmed ambient light conditions. Only use the VERION® Digital Marker in conjunction with compatible surgical microscopes.

ATTENTION: Refer to the user manuals for the VERION® Reference Unit and the VERION® Digital Marker for a complete description of proper use and maintenance of these devices, as well as a complete list of contraindications, warnings and precautions.

ORA System® with VerifEye+ Technology+

ORA System with VerifEye+

CAUTION: Federal (USA) law restricts this device to sale by, or on the order of, a physician.

INTENDED USE: The ORA System uses wavefront aberrometry data in the measurement and analysis of the refractive power of the eye (i.e., sphere, cylinder and axis measurements) to support cataract surgical procedures.

CONTRAINDICATIONS: The ORA System is contraindicated for patients:

  • who have progressive retinal pathology such as diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration or any other pathology that the physician deems would interfere with patient fixation;
  • who have corneal pathology such as Fuchs’, EBMD, keratoconus, advanced pterygium impairing the cornea or any other pathology that the physician deems would interfere with the measurement process;
  • whose preoperative regimen includes residual viscous substances left on the corneal surface such as lidocaine gel or viscoelastics;
  • with visually significant media opacity (such as prominent floaters or asteroid hyalosis) what will either limit or prohibit the measurement process; or
  • who have received retro or peribulbar block or any other treatment that impairs their ability to visualize the fixation light.

In addition, utilization of iris hooks during an ORA System image capture is contraindicated, because the use of iris hooks will yield inaccurate measurements.

WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS:

  • Significant central corneal irregularities resulting in higher order aberrations might yield inaccurate refractive measurements.
  • Post refractive keratectomy eyes might yield inaccurate refractive measurement.
  • The safety and effectiveness of using the data from the ORA System have not been established for determining treatments involving higher order aberrations of the eye such as coma and spherical aberrations.
  • The ORA System is intended for use by qualified health personnel only.
  • Improper use of this device may result in exposure to dangerous voltage or hazardous laser-like radiation exposure.
  • Do not operate the ORA System in the presence of flammable anesthetics or volatile solvents such as alcohol or benzene, or in locations that present an explosion hazard.

ATTENTION: Refer to the ORA System Operator’s Manual for a complete description of proper use and maintenance of the ORA System, as well as a complete list of contraindications, warnings and precautions.

AcrySof® IQ Toric IOL+

AcrySof® IQ Toric IOL

Currently AcrySof® IQ Toric IOL is only available in the United States.

CAUTION:
Federal (USA) law restricts this device to the sale by or on the order of a physician.

INDICATIONS:
The AcrySof® IQ Toric posterior chamber intraocular lenses are intended for primary implantation in the capsular bag of the eye for visual correction of aphakia and pre-existing corneal astigmatism secondary to removal of a cataractous lens in adult patients with or without presbyopia, who desire improved uncorrected distance vision, reduction of residual refractive cylinder and increased spectacle independence for distance vision.

WARNING / PRECAUTION:
Careful preoperative evaluation and sound clinical judgment should be used by the surgeon to decide the risk/benefit ratio before implanting a lens in a patient with any of the conditions described in the Directions for Use labeling. Toric IOLs should not be implanted if the posterior capsule is ruptured, if the zonules are damaged, or if a primary posterior capsulotomy is planned. Rotation can reduce astigmatic correction; if necessary lens repositioning should occur as early as possible prior to lens encapsulation. All viscoelastics should be removed from both the anterior and posterior sides of the lens; residual viscoelastics may allow the lens to rotate.

Optical theory suggests that high astigmatic patients (i.e. > 2.5 D) may experience spatial distortions. Possible toric IOL related factors may include residual cylindrical error or axis misalignments. Prior to surgery, physicians should provide prospective patients with a copy of the Patient Information Brochure available from Alcon for this product informing them of possible risks and benefits associated with the AcrySof® IQ Toric Cylinder Power IOLs.

Studies have shown that color vision discrimination is not adversely affected in individuals with the AcrySof® Natural IOL and normal color vision. The effect on vision of the AcrySof® Natural IOL in subjects with hereditary color vision defects and acquired color vision defects secondary to ocular disease (e.g., glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, chronic uveitis, and other retinal or optic nerve diseases) has not been studied. Do not resterilize; do not store over 45° C; use only sterile irrigating solutions such as BSS® or BSS PLUS® Sterile Intraocular Irrigating Solutions.

ATTENTION:
Reference the Directions for Use labeling for a complete listing of indications, warnings and precautions.
