Preparing for cataract surgery requires multiple incisions on the covering of the eyeball and inside the eye around the lens. Traditionally, these cuts were made by hand, with hand-held tools. The CATALYS® is beneficial because its laser can make these incisions with more accuracy and precision than by hand.
The CATALYS® is equipped with a guidance system that maps the eye structure in three dimensions and establishes safe-zone parameters. Since every eyeball is uniquely shaped and configured, being able to plan and customize these incisions makes for a more predictable result and outcome.
