Cataract is a very common problem usually occurring in older people. It is the clouding of the lens of your eye with ageing that impairs vision. Cataract symptoms include clouded, blurred or dim vision, increasing difficulty in vision at night, sensitivity to light and glare, seeing halos around lights, frequent changes in eyeglass or contact lens prescription, fading or yellowing of colours, double vision in a single eye.
Now it’s easier than ever to regain clear vision after cataract. Nowadays, with improved technology available for cataract surgery, people are able to get their cataract problem treated faster and hassle-free.
Robotic cataract surgery has become popular and is also a successful technique for patients who want to restore their eye sight or vision. In this life changing surgery, a highly advanced machine is docked to the affected eye of the patient which is further attached to an imaging system. This allows the doctor to get clear images of the eye that helps him to perform the surgery in an improved manner.
Bringing the latest cataract surgery technology, the Delhi Eye Centre, launched Zepto, the robotic precision cataract surgery system, a first in Delhi-NCR. This is considered to be the safest and precise system conducted at any time irrespective of complications.
The Zepto device used in surgery is an innovative, disposable system aimed at providing reliable, reproducible, automated circular opening in the crystalline lens during cataract surgery. The device is constructed from nickel-titanium (or nitinol), which is a shape-memory alloy. This means you can bend it out of shape and it always returns to its original shape – a property that makes it perfect for insertion into the eye through a clear incision in the cornea via a thin hollow rod. Once inside, the device flattens out to a circular template which suctions into place and delivers a precise, low-energy pulse to the lens capsule, which instantaneously separate a circle of tissue from the front surface.
Why to Choose Zepto cataract surgery:
- Blade Free cataract experience
- Working of laser takes about 30-40 seconds only
- Greater precision and safety
- Most Predictable Results
