Once the patient is in the OR, I need to find those marks and adjust them slightly to, say, 2 and 8 o'clock when the patient lies back and cyclotorsion — the slight rotation of the eye around its axis — occurs. Being able to dial up 2 and 8 o'clock on the RoboMarker and mark the cornea once in pre-op instead of making adjustments in the OR could be a signifi- cant time-saver. The marker handle costs roughly $1,700 and the disposable pre- inked tips run $10 per case. Tips that mark with ink visible under the infrared glare of the fem- tosecond laser are also available.

For years you may have felt like you had to tell symptomatic floater patients to live with their condition – or hope that their floaters would go away. With recent advancements in YAG laser technology you can now help these patients: laser vitreolysis, a reimbursable procedure, enables you to sever and vaporize vitreous strands, sheets, membranes and opacities with greater control and confidence. The Ultra Q Reflex ™ from Ellex is the only YAG laser designed for the treatment of floaters, offering a patented coaxial illumination and focusing system. To date, more than 30,000* symptomatic floater patients have been successfully treated with the Ultra Q Reflex ™ . This multi-modality system also offers Precision Perfect ™ capsulotomy and iridotomy treatments.
