PHACOEMULSIFICATION is the most modern micro-incision technique of cataract surgery, where an ultrasound probe breaks the cataract into tiny pieces and sucks them out. The incision (about 2.5- 3mm) is self-sealing and needs no stitches. The surgical time is reduced and there are faster healing and visual rehabilitation. There are minimal or no post-operative discomfort and a quick return to a normal routine. Once the cataract is removed, it is replaced with a permanent, artificial Intraocular Lens (IOL).
The Centurion Vision System features a peristaltic pump that doubles the available flow rate and eliminates the small pulsations typically associated with peristaltic pumps, according to company literature. Its Active Fluidics technology is designed to optimize chamber stability by providing more consistent IOP over a wide range of aspiration flow rates by detecting flow rate, irrigation pressure, and vacuum and compensating for pressure loss.
