The Zepto® capsulotomy system provides consistent, high quality anterior lens capsulotomies during cataract surgery in a convenient, cost-effective, disposable format.
Key features include:
- A collapsible super-elastic nitinol capsulotomy ring element with micron scale elements to create the unique and strong Zepto capsulotomy edge.
- A clear silicone suction cup to enable suction and generate Zepto’s proprietary capsulotomy action and to allow Zepto capsulotomies on the patient’s individual visual axis.
Zepto integrates seamlessly into the routine steps of cataract surgery with phacoemulsification. The surgeon does not need to alter his or her normal routine. Instead of capsulorrhexis forceps or a cystitome, the surgeon simply reaches for Zepto.
Zepto is first elongated using a built-in push rod and then inserted into the anterior chamber. It then re-circularizes and can be positioned anywhere on the capsule including precisely on the patient’s visual axis.
Suction is use to trap a thin layer of water molecules that undergo phase transition using an ultra-fast 4 millisecond electrical mutipulse discharge. Zepto is then floated off the capsule and removed from the anterior chamber.
