February 13, 2013

Hardware and software upgrades for Alcon’s Infiniti Vision System include the Intrepid AutoSert IOL injector, which enables automated delivery of the IOL.

 

Fort Worth, TX-The latest hardware and software upgrades for Alcon’s Infiniti Vision System are expected to provide surgeons greater control during cataract surgery, including the Intrepid AutoSert IOL injector, which enables automated delivery of the IOL.

The IOL injector hardware features controlled, consistent IOL delivery, helping surgeons gain more precise surgical control during IOL insertion compared with the variable delivery forces that can be experienced using a manual injector.

The injector hardware and software upgrades also allow enhanced IOL insertion control, better globe stabilization, smoother insertions, support for all standard incision sizes, including micro-incision cataract surgery, and better wound integrity.

“We are pleased to offer our Infiniti Vision System customers the opportunity to expand the platform’s functionalities further. Intrepid AutoSert technology increases surgeons’ control during the IOL delivery step, further reducing another variable of the cataract procedure, and, in turn, continuing to maximize consistency in overall patient outcomes,” said Laurent Attias, head of global commercial strategy, Alcon.

The Infiniti Vision System hardware and software upgrade kit will become available globally during the first half of 2013.
