Key Takeaways:

  • RayOne EMV offers extended range of vision without compromise: Dr Rocha describes EMV as a ‘monofocal plus’ IOL, providing excellent intermediate vision wihtout compromising distance. Dr Hura highlights the benefits for patients with corneal issues, Fuchs’ dystrophy, or spherical aberration from an ERM.
  • Importance of intermediate vision: Dr Rocha stresses the significance of intermediate vision, often overlooked by patients who are focused on far sight. Modern life relies heavily on devices like smartphones and tablets which are held at arm’s length.
  • Simplified patient follow-up with RayPRO: Addressing post-surgery challenges, Dr Hura praises RayPRO for direct patient-surgeon data exchange, enabling thorough vision progress assessment to support informed decisions.
  • Long-term, real-time, patient-reported insights with RayPRO: The surgeons highlight RayPRO as an effective tool for continuous patient follow-up and data collection up to three years post-surgery.
  • HASA OPTIX improves OR efficiency: The surgeons support single-use instruments for instant tool access, enhancing precision, reducing OR stress, and potentially lowering infection risks.
