Alcon Centurion Vision System
The new Centurion Vision System is the only intelligent phacoemulsifier technology that optimizes every moment of the cataract surgical procedure. The new system automatically and continuously adapts to changing conditions within the eye, provides greater anterior chamber stability during each step of the surgery, and places optimized energy technology at the surgeon’s fingertips through enhanced fluidic management and surgical precision. It also allows the surgeon to emulsify and aspirate the lens in the the eye, while replacing aspirated fluid and lens material with balanced controls, the surgeon regulates the amount of power applied to the handpiece tip, the rate of aspiration, vacuum, and the flow of BSS irrigating solution. The CENTURION System also sets a new standard of performance in cataract surgery by combining multiple intelligent phaco technologies, and other key features, including:
Active Fluidics Technology
An automated system that optimizes anterior chamber stability by allowing surgeons to proactively set and maintain target intraocular pressure (IOP) within the eye during the cataract removal procedure. This provides enhanced IOP control during the procedure in comparison to gravity fluidics and fixed pressure irrigation; reduces surges due to occlusion breaks; increases IOP efficiency at lower, more natural settings; and eliminates the need to manually adjust fluid pressure.
Control and responsiveness
- Target IOP
- Irrigation factor
- Patient eye level (PEL)
- IOP Ramp
System Responsiveness: Throughout the procedure, the system works to:
- Maintain surgeon-selected IOP
- Rapidly monitor flow rate, irrigation
pressure, vacuum and other metrics
- Detect and dynamically compensate
for changes in the fluidic environment
Streamlined FMS for smooth I/A control: The FMS is designed for smooth fluid movement and vacuum rise, so the surgeon is able to focus
more on the cataract removal procedure and less on managing the phaco system.
Innovative irrigation for optimized responsiveness: Active Fluidics™ technology quickly detects fluidics change during the cataract removal procedure
and dynamically compensates to maintain surgeon-selected target IOP. The Active Fluidics™ bag fits
into a compartment between two plates. These plates can rapidly compress or decompress fluid in
the Active Fluidics™ bag to maintain surgeon-selected target IOP.
Innovative CENTURION Vision System software: The CENTURION Vision System accommodates a wide range of surgeon settings. Both the aspiration rate and vacuum limit can be set for increased control, cataract removal efficiency and procedural balance.
Balanced Energy Technology
Enhances phacoemulsification efficiency through proven OZil Intelligent Phaco and the INTREPID Balanced Tip probe. This increases efficiency and control, while reducing energy levels, and accommodating surgeon settings for aspiration and vacuum by keeping the fragmented lens material at the shearing plane for emulsification.
OZil Intelligent Phaco (IP): OZil: Intelligent Phaco (IP) optimizes followability and minimizes occlusion break surge
Innovative CENTURION Vision System Software: The CENTURION Vision System accommodates a wide range of surgeon settings. Both the aspiration rate and vacuum limit can be set for increased control, cataract removal efficiency and procedural balance.
An innovative design that enables the new system to be seamlessly integrated with multiple cataract surgical technologies, like Alcon’s LuxOR Surgical Microscopes with Q-VUE 3-D assistant and the LenSx Laser to create a comprehensive cataract surgery suite designed to minimize variability at every step of the procedure. The Centurion also offers an improved ergonomic design, wireless footswitch and intuitive touch-screen display.
