Introducing VICTUS—the femtosecond laser platform that extends your expertise with exceptional performance across cataract and corneal (LASIK flap) procedures.
In all of its features and capabilities, VICTUS is engineered to meet the standards of the clinician who truly embraces innovation. This highly advanced system is designed to provide greater precision than manual cataract surgery techniques, potentially enhancing the patient experience.
Stay in control. The VICTUS platform is designed for:
Key Features & Benefits
- Versatility - Cataract and corneal (LASIK flap) procedure capabilities
- Real-time, high contrast OCT
- Designed to enhance patient comfort, with procedure-dependent pressure control.
- Pulse rates up to 160 kHz - minimizes procedure time and enhances surgeon control
Curved Patient Interface
3-D cutting requires a static connection between laser and eye
- Anatomically designed for patient comfort
- Sterile, disposable, single-use
Intelligent Pressure Sensors
- Real-time monitoring of the curved patient interface with the eye via multiple pressure sensors
- Designed to reduce applanation of the cornea and minimize corneal folds
Procedure-Dependent Pressure Control
- Anterior cornea/flap-cutting procedures
- Pressure is optimized to provide a very stable corneal reference interface for precise depth control during the procedure
- Pressure is optimized to minimize posterior corneal folds to enable a precise and complete cut
- Adjustable vacuum (20 mbar steps)
- Secure placement of suction ring on eye
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/therapeutic procedures and cataract applications.
The VICTUS platform is cleared for creation of a corneal flap in patients undergoing LASIK surgery or other treatments requiring initial lamellar resection of the cornea, and for anterior capsulotomy during cataract surgery.
