AutonoMe®

Delivery System

 

Control at every step1

AutonoMe® Delivery System

 

Control at every step1

 

AutonoMe® is the first and only automated, disposable, pre-loaded IOL delivery system.

 

Intuitive Control for a Smooth IOL Delivery1-3

68% of surgeons found the delivery speed easy to control2*

 

The responsive speed control lever2
 
  • Provides full control of plunger advancement
  • Allows surgeons to precisely start, stop and linearly adjust speed at any time during surgery
  • Helps surgeons focus more on the patient

A unique delivery mechanism2,3

 

  • Smooth, automated IOL delivery of up to 3 mm/sec
  • Steady and continual motion providing a new level of control over IOL delivery speed

* Ease of controlling plunger advancement during IOL delivery; percent of total participants (n=136) from US, EU, Brazil & Japan. Study was conducted with porcine cadaver eyes (6 eyes per participant with over 800 eyes in total).  
† Surgeons most commonly answered “Smooth” (43%) and “Effortless” (27%). Percent of total participants n=136 participants from US, EU, Brazil & Japan. Study was conducted with porcine cadaver eyes (6 eyes per participant with over 800 eyes in total).

Designed to fit comfortably in surgeons’ hands for intuitive single-handed control of the device1-3

 

  • Designed for a natural fit to suit multiple surgical techniques, with no injection force required

 

  • Single-handed design frees the second hand for globe stabilisation

 

  • Precise control of nozzle tip orientation allows for consistent delivery of the IOL into the capsular

Preserves Wound Integrity4*

AutonoMe® features a proprietary depth guard1,4

  • Allows reduced stress and damage to the surrounding tissue
  • Control of nozzle insertion depth
  • Minimised incision enlargement
  • Greater resistance to nozzle tip splitting
  • Precise delivery into the capsular bag

 

 

*Ex-vivo, exploratory laboratory study performed on 32 human cadaver eyes.

The AutonoMe® nozzle tip is designed to maintain wound integrity by5

  • Preserving corneal tissue
  • Minimising damage to Descemet’s membrane
Two related images beside each other. The first image is a close-up of the AutonoMe nozzle tip, with text indicating that the length of the tip is 3.0mm, and diameter of the tip is 2.0mm. Blue text at the top of this image reads “Nozzle Tip Dimensions.”    The second image is of the pre- and post- implantation process for AutonoMe, Vivinex, and Tecnis. Blue text at the top of this image reads “OCT images of post-implantation incisions ex vivo.” Red arrows on top of the Vivinex and Tecnis images point to membrane tearing post implantation ex vivo.

 * Study conducted on human cadaver eyes that were randomly assigned to receive IOLs implanted with the preloaded delivery devices.

AutonoMe® demonstrates the lowest incidence of Descemet’s membrane detachment, compared to other delivery systems5

Bar graph illustrates the “the percentage of Descemet’s membrane detachment ex vivo in human cadaver eyes.” AutonoMe reports the lowest occurrence of 6.25 percent, while Vivinex iSert and iTec reports 25 and 43.75, respectively.  The difference between AutonoMe and iTec was statically significant.

Easier to Use than Competitor Devices

 

AutonoMe® is reported to be easier to use compared to iTec* and iSert*2†

AutonoMe Delivery System in between two blue circles. The circle on the left is visually representing 80 percent. White text underneath this circle reads “80% of surgeons reported AutonoMe as easier to use vs. iTec.” The circle on the right is visually representing 64 percent. White text underneath this circle reads “64% of surgeons reported AutonoMe as easier to use vs. Vivinex iSert.”

* Trademarks are the property of their respective owners. 
† Porcine whole eye globes were used as the model in this study, as this model is extensively used for cataract surgery and IOL implantation studies.
Based on n = 17 for iTec and n = 8 for iSert.

AutonoMe® is ready to use in 3 simple steps1
