Competing Technologies for Capsular Creation

24th April 2018 09:20

Compared with laser cataract surgery, use of PPC has a huge impact on reducing costs and operating time. Cases that could not be performed with the laser because of small pupil diameters or opacified media can now be assisted with use of the Zepto. Visibility through the suction cup is an additional advantage, allowing centration over the visual axis. Unlike the laser, the PPC technique does not create heat that induces pupil diameter reduction in some patients, especially those with pseudoexfoliation.
