- Real-time Enhanced Visualization
- Guided Visual Adjustment
- Easy-to-use graphic interface, and advanced high-contrast OCT capabilities
- OCT-guided arcuate incisions enable precise control of incision depth, and independent adjustment of incision length, diameter, and axis.
VICTUS VERAFIT Patient Interface
The VICTUS VERAFIT Patient Interface provides a measured balance of both precision and ergonomics. And it’s paired with advanced docking technology that lets you switch on the fly between cataract and corneal procedures, while maintaining the correct position of the eye. For ease of use VICTUS VERAFIT may be used with or without an eye speculum.
- Cataract Procedures: Non-contact, fluid-filled docking helps ensure stability, accurate centration and alignment, and precise cutting and fragmentation1,2
- Corneal Procedures: Full-contact, dry docking engages with a direct connection, to provide excellent stability and enable precise corneal incisions
Intelligent Pressure Sensors
Intelligent Pressure Sensors monitor the sheer forces exerted on the eye by the docking device.1 Sheer forces can cause posterior corneal folds or ripples and conjunctival hemorrhaging.3
About Femtosecond Lasers
Femtosecond lasers emit optical pulses of extremely short duration in the domain of femtoseconds, as short as one-quadrillionth of a second. These ultra-short pulses do not transfer heat or shock to the material being cut and can make surgical incisions with extreme precision. The technology was developed in the early 1990s at the University of Michigan Engineering Center. The first commercial platform was introduced in 2002 and the original approval was for flap creation during LASIK surgery. Recent platform approvals have been expanded to include additional corneal procedures and cataract applications.
Indications for Use
The VICTUS Femtosecond Laser Platform is indicated for use for:
The creation of a corneal flap in patients undergoing LASIK surgery or other treatment requiring initial lamellar resection of the cornea
For anterior capsulotomy during cataract surgery
The creations of cuts / incisions in the cornea of patients undergoing cataract surgery or other ophthalmic treatment requiring cuts / incisions in the cornea
Laser-assisted lens fragmentation of nuclear cataracts during cataract surgery, not for posterior subcapsular (PSC) and cortical cataracts
The VICTUS Femtosecond Laser Platform emits an invisible class 3B laser beam that may injure the retina of the eyes or burn the skin. Never look directly into the laser source.
Misuse of the laser system may lead to dangerous situations and severe injuries. See the Operator Manual for detailed directions, proper use, and full risk and safety information.
General contraindications for using the VICTUS Femtosecond Laser Platform include, but are not limited to, the following: pediatric surgery, hypotony or glaucoma, retinal disorders, rheumatic diseases, occlusion of retinal vessels, pellucid marginal degeneration, existing corneal implant, heavy vascularization of the ocular tissue, epilepsy. Conditions that would cause inadequate clearance between the intended capsulotomy cut and the corneal endothelium. Valid exclusion criteria that complicate the docking procedure. Subjects with corneal disease or pathology that precludes applanation of the cornea or transmission of laser wavelength or distortion of laser light, who show signs of suspected or diagnosed keratoconus, who are pregnant or nursing, who are blind in the fellow eye, patients with any cornea disease in the eye that requires treatment (recurrent corneal erosion, severe basement membrane disease), difference of more than 5D between minimum and maximum K-values of the central 3mm zone on a keratometric map of the cornea, or maximum K-value of more than 60D, or minimum K-value of less than 37D
Potential general complications resulting from VICTUS procedures include, but are not limited to corneal abrasion or defect, pain, bleeding, inflammation, and elevated intraocular pressure.
Please see the Operator Manual for detailed potential procedure-specific complications and contraindications for anterior capsulotomy, corneal cuts / incisions, flaps used in LASIK, and lens fragmentation. Potential complications are not limited to those included in the User Manual.
