Osher Toric Alignment System

Haag-Streit USA Inc. (Mason, OH) introduced the new Osher Toric Alignment System to assist surgeons with accurately placing toric IOLs. The system was conceived by Robert H. Osher, MD, of the Cincinnati Eye Institute and developed by Haag-Streit. It is designed to allow surgeons to manually superimpose a protractor over an image of the patient’s eye. The keratometric meridians and the IOL goal line, transposed from the toric IOL calculator, can be overlaid on the image, which can then be brought into the OR on a USB drive or printed as a hard-copy photograph for reference during the IOL’s implantation, according to a news release.

TrueVision 3D System

TrueVision Systems, Inc. (Santa Barbara, CA), announced that it received 510(k) clearance from the FDA to market the TrueVision 3D Visualization and Guidance System. The new system combines the current TrueVision 3D Visualization System, which runs TrueWare 3D Imaging system, with new proprietary software tools, called the TrueVision Refractive Cataract Toolset. Launched in 2008, the TrueVision 3D Visualization System is a stereoscopic threedimensional, high-definition visualization system that displays the surgical field of view in real time on a three-dimensional, flat-panel display in the OR.
