LOS ANGELES — The FDA has granted 510(k) clearances for integration of the Oculus Pentacam HR and Pentacam AXL, and the Topcon Aladdin topographer with the Lensar Laser System with Streamline III, according to a Lensar press release.

The approvals build on the system’s open architecture design, which “allows surgeons to use the diagnostic devices they trust to guide treatment and manage astigmatism using our laser’s exclusive features,” Lensar CEO Nick Curtis said in the release.

“We are very excited about the potential of the partnership with Oculus and their Pentacam users,” Curtis told Healio.com/OSN. "This latest clearance provides even more surgeons access to the suite of integrated astigmatism management features enabled by the Lensar Laser System with Streamline III."

At the Ophthalmology Innovation Summit here, Curtis talked with Healio.com/OSN about the introduction of the Streamline III.

“We’re really pushing the envelope as it relates to incorporation of open architecture platform with preoperative diagnostic information and feeding astigmatism information into the Lensar,” Curtis said.

The Cassini corneal shape analyzer (I-Optics) and Nidek ODP are already capable of direct integration into the Lensar Laser System, according to the release.
