Alcon has launched LenSx SoftFit Patient Interface for the LenSx laser platform to minimize corneal distortion and promote easier docking.
The company says the new interface uses a proprietary soft contact lens technology designed to enable the natural curvature of the cornea to conform to a soft contact lens insert, allowing a secure and gentle fit to a patient's eye while minimizing corneal distortion.
Alcon says the LenSx SoftFit Patient Interface delivers:
- Free floating capsulotomy in nearly all cases
- Pristine capsulotomy edges
- Easier docking
- Enhanced patient comfort
- Lower IOP rise of 16mmHg
- Improved surgical performance with a 66 percent reduction in energy to the eye
- Procedure time reduced by 34 percent
The company says the LenSx SoftFit Patient Interface is expected to become available in most markets by the end of 2012.
