Super Q® allows you to cut tissue more effectively using fewer shots and less cumulative energy – dramatically reducing the risk of IOL pitting. Capsulotomy for Presbyopic IOLs A precise capsulotomy is essential for intraocular lenses that correct presbyopia through implantation in the posterior chamber’s capsular bag. Good IOL centration, in terms of the pupil, optimizes lens performance. In contrast, decentration can cause halos and poor vision. The goal is a perfectly centered, precise capsulotomy that will not affect the tension of the bag and the position of the IOL in the visual axis. The precision and ultra-low energy optical breakdown provided by Super Q® creates a capsulotomy opening that is precisely controlled, without causing damage to the lens – even if the lack of a ridge makes the capsule adhere to the optic. Iridotomy for Phakic IOLs Refractive IOLs that are designed to correct myopia, or hyperopia (also known as Phakic IOLs) can be placed in front of the iris or between the iris and the natural lens. To prevent any possibility of IOL-induced pupillary block, these lenses require peripheral iridotomies prior to surgery. The iridotomy aperture must be large enough to ensure a balanced aqueous flow, yet small enough so that no light is transmitted back to the pupil, which can cause double vision. Super Q® enables you to create a precise size of the iridotomy, often in a single shot that uses lower energy than other YAG lasers.
