VisionBlue facilitates the visualization of the anterior lens capsule and may prevent an incomplete removal of the anterior lens, radial capsule tears and associated complications.
Current methods of cataract surgery are not compatible with the use of injectable gel lens substitutes because they functionally destroy the integrity of the lens capsule, thereby rendering it impossible to refill the capsule.
The Catarex(TM) surgical device permits removal of the lens nucleus and cortex in a single step through a small incision in the eye while leaving the lens capsule intact.
With phaco, a surgeon must maneuver an ultrasonic probe within the lens capsule (the sac containing the lens) to seek out and break up the hard tissue that constitutes the cataract into fine pieces which are then gently suctioned out of the eye.
Evaluation of approximately four years of data from an ongoing study of patients receiving PNT(TM) has shown the procedure, originally designed to treat Primary Open Angle Glaucoma (POAG), pigmentary glaucoma and glaucoma associated with pseudoexfoliation of the lens capsule, is of value in treating ocular hypertension, as well.
This monoclonal antibody-based product is currently in Phase II clinical trials, and previously reported results have shown a statistically significant reduction in lens capsule opacification (secondary cataract formation) for patients treated with the product compared to patients treated with a placebo.
Included in the guidelines are findings from cataract outcomes published by a team of researchers on the incidence of retinal detachment after use of YAG-laser capsulotomy -- a procedure undergone annually by more than 600,000 previous cataract surgery patients to correct opaqueness of the remaining lens capsule.
At Arizona Glaucoma Institute, owned by Coronado's wholly owned subsidiary American Glaucoma, evaluation of approximately two years of data from a recently concluded study of 190 patients receiving pneumatic trabeculoplasty has shown that the procedure, originally designed to treat Primary Open Angle Glaucoma (POAG), pigmentary glaucoma and glaucoma associated with pseudoexfoliation of the lens capsule, is of value in treating "ocular hypertension" as well.
ECCE requires a 6-11 millimeter entry incision in the eye's surface and a 4-6 millimeter opening in the inner lens capsule, while Phaco requires a 3-5 millimeter incision in the eye's surface and a 4-6 millimeter incision in the inner lens capsule.
In all cases, the lens capsule remained intact with about only a 1.

A mild amount of fibrin was present on the anterior lens capsule.
Catalys laser system's integrated 3-D optical coherence tomography technology also provides imaging of the anterior chamber of the eye, which is hoped to support safe and accurate preparation of the lens capsule for precise positioning of intraocular lenses.
