OptiMedica Corporation's Catalys(TM) Precision Laser System to Be the Subject of Four Clinical Presentations at American Academy of Ophthalmology 2010
SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Global ophthalmic device company OptiMedica Corp. has announced that its Catalys Precision Laser System will be featured as part of four clinical presentations at the American Academy of Ophthalmology annual meeting in Chicago on October 16, 17 and 18. The company’s Catalys system, which combines a femtosecond laser, integrated Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) imaging and OptiMedica’s breakthrough pattern scanning technology, was designed to dramatically improve the cataract procedure by replacing its inconsistent, manual steps. Technological hallmarks of the Catalys system include an innovative Liquid Optics™ Interface that optimizes the optical path to the patient’s eye, and a proprietary Integral Guidance™ system that ensures the femtosecond laser pulses are delivered precisely to the intended location. AAO presenters will explore the clinical results achieved through the use of these and other Catalys features as well as the system’s potential to transform the future of cataract surgery.
