The result is a machine that is compact, mobile, and extremely user-friendly, provides advanced fluidics and power modulation technology, and overall yields superior control and intraoperative efficiency.

The system allows customizable preferences for vacuum or flow-based fluidics and supports standard small-incision coaxial phaco, as well as microincision surgery using coaxial or bimanual modes. In addition, it is designed to be fully adaptable for future upgrades, eliminating the frustration of investing in new technology that too soon becomes outdated.

According to Bausch & Lomb, the system features many innovations, including a redesigned, ergonomic, ultralight titanium handpiece. In addition, it offers an 18-inch, high-resolution, touch-screen display with a large font size that is easily visible from across the operating room. The display also provides a choice of different formats, features a streaming video inlay, and shows an animated guide providing complete set-up instructions. The system's venturi pump is able to reach a vacuum level of 600 mm Hg.
