Bridgewater, NJ-Bausch + Lomb has unveiled a new handpiece specifically designed for femtocataract surgery.

The disposable ZeroPhaco I/A handpiece-with either 15°or 30° bevel needle-is designed for the removal of soft cataracts following femtosecond laser fragmentation without the use of ultrasonic energy.

Pre-assembled with a standard infusion sleeve, the coaxial handpiece is designed to work with the Stellaris and Stellaris PC systems for lens removal using an I/A mode. The handpiece is used as replacement for the ultrasound phacoemulsifaction handpiece and is green-colored to avoid confusion with the I/A handpiece for cortical cleanup.

In addition to the standard incision format-for incision sizes greater than 2.4 mm-the I/A handpiece is also available for use in a MICS 2.2-mm incision as well.
