ClearCut® S Safety Knife

The Choice for Safety is Clear

The ClearCut® S Safety Knife—When it comes to advanced protection and performance, there’s only one choice.

Protect Your Most Valuable Assets

Protect yourself, your staff, and your patients from stick injuries with the new ClearCut® S Safety Knife.

The ClearCut® S Safety Knife offers the consistent sharpness and ergonomic design surgeons expect from the world leader in ophthalmic knives. But the ClearCut® S Safety Knife also features new safety elements to prevent sharps injuries without compromising quality, ease of use, or accuracy.

The safety features are user-friendly and provide the premium protection surgeons need.

Proven ClearCut® Safety Knife Technology

  • Ideal incision construction and wound opposition
  • Consistent sharpness and precise penetration

Unparalleled Design

  • Smooth actuation
  • Easy blade visibility during surgery

Rethink What You’ve Come to Expect From a Safety Knife

ClearCut™ S Safety Knife

A simple mechanism releases the blade from under the protective hood, making the blade as visible and easy to use as ever. The blade locks into place for surgery. Then, when finished, the surgeon simply releases the safety mechanism to bring the blade back under the safety shield.

INFINITI® Vision System

Caution:
Federal law restricts this device to sale by, or on the order of, a physician.

As part of a properly maintained surgical environment, it is recommended that a backup IOL Injector be made available in the event the AutoSert® IOL Injector Handpiece does not perform as expected.

Indication:
The INFINITI® Vision System is indicated for emulsification, separation, and removal of cataracts, the removal of residual cortical material and lens epithelial cells, vitreous aspiration and cutting associated with anterior vitrectomy, bipolar coagulation, and intra-ocular lens injection. The INTREPID® AutoSert® IOL Injector Handpiece is intended to deliver qualified AcrySof® intraocular lenses into the eye following cataract removal.

The following system modalities additionally support the described indications:

  • Ultrasound with UltraChopper® Tip achieves the functionality of cataract separation.
  • AquaLase® Liquefracture Device achieves the functionality for removal of residual cortical material and lens epithelial cells.
  • The INTREPID® AutoSert® IOL Injector Handpiece achieves the functionality of injection of intraocular lenses. The INTREPID® AutoSert® IOL Injector Handpiece is indicated for use with ACRYSOF® lenses SN60WF, SN6AD1, SN6AT3 through SN6AT9, as well as approved AcrySof® lenses that are specifically indicated for use with this inserter, as indicated in the approved labeling of those lenses.

Warnings:
Appropriate use of INFINITI® Vision System parameters and accessories is important for successful procedures. Use of low vacuum limits, low flow rates, low bottle heights, high power settings, extended power usage, power usage during occlusion conditions (beeping tones), failure to sufficiently aspirate viscoelastic prior to using power, excessively tight incisions, and combinations of the above actions may result in significant temperature increases at incision site and inside the eye, and lead to severe thermal eye tissue damage.

Adjusting aspiration rates or vacuum limits above the preset values, or lowering the IV pole below the preset values, may cause chamber shallowing or collapse which may result in patient injury.

When filling handpiece test chamber, if stream of fluid is weak or absent, good fluidics response will be jeopardized. Good clinical practice dictates the testing for adequate irrigation and aspiration flow prior to entering the eye.

Ensure that tubings are not occluded or pinched during any phase of operation.

The consumables used in conjunction with ALCON® instrument products constitute a complete surgical system. Use of consumables and handpieces other than those manufactured by Alcon may affect system performance and create potential hazards.

AEs/Complications:
Use of the NeoSoniX®, OZil® torsional, U/S, or AquaLase® handpieces in the absence of irrigation flow and/or in the presence of reduced or lost aspiration flow can cause excessive heating and potential thermal injury to adjacent eye tissues.

Attention:
Refer to the directions for use for a complete listing of indications, warnings and precautions.

ClearCut® S Safety Knife

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

Indications:
CLASS I incisional instruments are sterile, single use disposable devices intended for use during ophthalmic surgical procedures.

Precautions:
Potential complications resulting from use of this blade during ophthalmic surgery include, but are not limited to: infection, tissue damage, inflammation, edema, hyphema, hypopyon, secondary surgical re-intervention, and wound leak repair.

Properly dispose of the used device in a secure sharps instrument container.

Do not reuse. Reuse may lead to wound irregularities (due to degradation of the cutting edge sharpness) and/or cross contamination between patients.

Attention:
Reference the Directions for Use labeling for a complete listing of indications and precautions.
