Zepto Cataract Surgery - Advanced Treatment Procedure in India

Quick Summary

  • Cataract is a common ailment that affects ageing adults.
  • Cataract is a problem with the natural lens of the eye.
  • Cataract can be fixed with surgery.

Vision loss is a common ailment that most ageing adults face in their lifetime. It includes partial to complete blindness, and these problems become more prominent when humans cross the threshold age of sixty years.On the note of deeper understanding, it is imperative to know that these issues are born out of problems that affect the cataract (natural lens) of human eyes. The only way to perform a remedial measure is by surgically peeling the natural lens and then replacing it with an artificial one.With time and progress, many ways have been devised to fix these issues and restore crystal clear vision. The traditional methods have been replaced with automated and precision-rich techniques comprising Femto and Zepto Cataract Surgery.

What is Zepto Cataract Surgery?

While cataract surgeries have been gaining popularity over the last two decades, the technology to support this procedure has been advancing simultaneously to ensure safety and success. The term Zepto means, based on a metric scale; Zepto is 1 million times smaller than Femto.

Zepto Cataract Surgery is the newest automated surgical method where a laser is used to perform the procedure. This process is carried out using the Zepto Capsulotomy device, an invention that concretely enhanced the world of ophthalmology and uses Precision Pulse Capsulotomy technology (PPC).

A capsulotomy device is a handheld machine docked to a technically advanced console. It is completely disposable and is built using nitinol alloy that can be inserted into the cornea via an incision of roughly 2mm. Post the incision; the device facilitates the doctor with a built-in vacuum alongside fast but low energy pulses of direct current to aid in perfectly circular capsulotomies each time.
