Rob Thornhill: Hello, my name is Rob Thornhill. I'm the CEO of Centricity Vision. We're pleased to announce the introduction of our new ZEPTO Plus handpiece at this year's [American] Academy [of Ophthalmology]. ZEPTO Plus gives our surgeon partners a choice in capsulotomy size when they're working with our automated capsulotomy system.

The ZEPTO Plus creates a 5.4 capsulotomy and allows surgeons to do phaco outside of the capsular bag and also provides a larger capsulotomy for surgeons when they do complex cases. This device provides the same centered, consistent capsulotomies with 360-degree overlap that provides time and cost efficiency in the operating room.

We're also developing a new technology called ZEPTOLINK which combines our ZEPTO technology with any phaco device. This device, when it's completed, will add complete control for the surgeon and the procedure including the capsulotomy through the phaco foot pedal. We are going to the FDA by the end of this year, and we expect if all things go well to be introducing this very exciting new technology by spring 2023.
