Bladeless Cataract Surgery with VICTUS
Traditional cataract surgery involves the creation of several small incisions which are made manually with a blade. With Victus the most challenging steps of traditional cataract surgery are automated allowing the surgeon to create those incisions with a higher degree of precision, blade-free!
The VICTUS platform is designed for:
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 do not transfer heat or shock to the material being cut and can make surgical incisions with extreme precision. The technology was developed in the early 1990s at the University of Michigan Engineering Center.
The first commercial platform was introduced in 2002 and the original approval was for flap creation during LASIK surgery. Recent platform approvals have been expanded to include additional corneal/therapeutic procedures and cataract applications.
