Bausch+Lomb has announced the worldwide launch of the Stellaris PC (Procedural Choice) Vision Enhancement System.
The new, state-of-the-art, combined vitrectomy and phacoemulsification system allows surgeons to have true ‘procedural choice’ by providing technology for both vitreoretinal and cataract surgery in a single system.
Dr. Carl Awh, a long time adviser to Bausch+Lomb and a private-practice physician with Tennessee Retina in Nashville, said, “The Stellaris PC meets the needs of today’s vitreoretinal and cataract surgeons. It allows us to perform the most advanced techniques with an intuitive, more compact system and is ideally equipped for both the ambulatory surgery centre and the hospital operating room.”
When we spoke with the surgeons about the type of device they prefer, they emphasised how important it was to keep this device intuitive for the surgeon.
The Stellaris PC offers the following benefits to surgeons and their patients:
- Advanced – Fluidics, cutting and illumination technology; sleek design, small footprint and wireless, footpedal with Dual Linear control.
- Versatile – Perform cataract surgery, vitreo-retinal surgery or a combination of the two on the same surgical list.
- Different – Forward thinking design; intuitive and easy to use for the surgeon and their staff; comes with a dual light source and surgeon-selected colour filters that allow for differentiated viewing designed to enhance the surgeon’s ability to see ocular tissue better.
Russ Finlay, global marketing director, Vitreoretinal Business, noted, “When we spoke with the surgeons about the type of device they prefer, they emphasised how important it was to keep this device intuitive for the surgeon.”
