- The Eippert Femtosecond Spatula assists in opening primary and secondary incisions created by the femtosecond laser
- The Solomon Femtosecond Chopper is designed to chop fragmented nuclei
- The LRI Enhancement Forceps can spread arcuate incisions pre- or postoperatively or during a slit-lamp examination
Accutome, Inc. recently introduced three instruments for use during laser cataract surgery: the Eippert Femtosecond Spatula, the Solomon Femtosecond Chopper, and the LRI Enhancement Forceps. According to the company, these devices help surgeons who use femtosecond lasers during cataract surgery to create precise subsurface cuts. The Eippert Spatula helps users accurately open primary and secondary incisions created by the femtosecond laser by offering double-ended sizing for greater versatility and blunt, thin tips to maintain the wound's proper architecture. The Solomon Femtosecond Chopper's footballshaped tip is designed specifically to chop fragmented nuclei. The LRI Enhancement Forceps, which have a 500-μm gauge to correct the incision's depth, can spread arcuate incisions pre- or postoperatively or during a slit-lamp examination.
