IOL Surgery: Leica Microscopes integrated with SMI Surgery Guidance

Press release from: SensoMotoric Instruments GmbH

Leica ophthalmic microscopes are now compatible with the SMI Surgery Guidance Solution for IOL surgery.

Leica Microsystems AG (Leica, Switzerland) and SensoMotoric Instruments GmbH (SMI, Germany) present for the first time the SMI Surgery Guidance Solution integrated with a Leica ophthalmic microscope at the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) meeting, 25 – 29th March 2011 in San Diego, USA. This integration allows users of Leica ophthalmic microscopes (e.g. Leica M820 F40 or Leica M844 F40) a seamlessly integrated workflow for IOL surgery.

Launched at the ESCRS 2010, the SMI Surgery Guidance solution supports the precise orientation of toric IOL, the accurate centering of multifocal IOL, the exact position of incisions and LRIs and the centering and sizing of capsulorhexis without the use of manual markers. It consists of the SMI Reference Unit, taking reference measures including k-readings and HD-images of the eye and the SMI Surgery Pilot, providing customizable digital marks overlaid live on the patient’s eye during surgery. These functions can now be seamlessly integrated with Leica ophthalmic microscopes. The SMI Surgery Pilot provides the surgeon with all important data directly displayed in the oculars of the microscope. To simplify the workflow during surgery, Leica integrated the control system of the SMI Surgery Pilot into the microscope foot pedal. In addition to the easy-to-use touch screen, this allows the surgeon full control of the SMI Surgery Pilot. Furthermore, the Leica microscope integration offers the possibility to mount the SMI Surgery Pilot directly onto the microscope providing the optimal view.

Dr. Oliver Kersting, Head of SMI’s Ophthalmic Systems business division says: “With the Leica microscope integration, SMI is able to provide the benefits of the SMI Surgery Guidance for advanced IOL surgery in an efficient and easy-to-use way to the surgeon. We are proud and happy to have won Leica Microsystems as a partner for our surgery guidance platform. ”
