Johnson & Johnson Vision offers new IOL, software for astigmatism management
Johnson & Johnson Vision introduced two products for the treatment of astigmatism in patients with cataract at the virtual European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons meeting.
The Tecnis Synergy toric II IOL with Tecnis Simplicity delivery system is a continuous range of vision lens designed for rotational stability, while the Catalys system cOS 6.0 software offers astigmatism management features for the Catalys Precision laser system.
“The Tecnis Synergy toric II IOL means we can now give cataract patients with astigmatism our most advanced IOL solution yet, whilst the Catalys system cOS 6.0 is a software package that allows for better accuracy, speed and ease of use for the surgeon for a whole range of astigmatism procedures,” Erin McEachren, regional vice president, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Johnson & Johnson Surgical Vision, said in a press release.
The Tecnis Synergy toric II IOL features low-light capability and continuity without visual gaps. The Catalys system aims to minimize data entry verification and manual transcription errors, reduce time spent on calculations and reduce need for intraoperative aberrometry for toric IOL alignment, and it includes iris registration for automatic cyclorotation compensation.
The IOL is now available throughout the EU. The Catalys software will be commercially available in Europe, Middle East and Africa in the fourth quarter.
