Exciting news from Collins Vision! We have expanded our capabilities for cataract patients by adding another device to our surgery-assisting arsenal. With the addition of the Zepto® Cataract System, our already-fantastic cataract surgery outcomes will be even better.
What Is Zepto and What Does It Do?
Zepto is used during one of the most important steps of cataract surgery called a capsulotomy. A capsulotomy creates an incision into the thin membrane above the lens of your eye called the capsule. It is performed in order for your surgeon to reach the lens of your eye.
At Collins Vision, capsulotomies used to be performed either by hand or (usually) by using the assistance of a femtosecond laser. The creation of a capsulotomy during cataract surgery is not only a vital step, but also one of the most challenging phases in cataract surgery. The Zepto device simplifies this process by creating a capsulotomy in just three steps; Insert, Center, and Create.
The advantage of using the Zepto Cataract System is that it is able to create a precise, centered, 360° overlap between your replacement lens and your eye tissue. By making sure the lens is placed as precisely as possible, the Zepto device helps ensure the light will enter your eye and refract into the desired spot on your retina resulting in optimal visual outcomes.
When was the Zepto device created?
The original Zepto device was developed by a company called Centricity Vision and was approved by the FDA in 2017. Since then, they have developed the next generation of the Zepto Cataract System, allowing this technology to become even more precise and efficient.
At Collins Vision, we are always excited when new medical technologies allow us to better serve our valued patients. We couldn’t be more excited that with the addition of the Zepto device, we are now even more equipped to serve YOU.
