The New VICTUS® Femtosecond Laser Platform, from Bausch + Lomb is Designed to Support Positive Patient Experience and Outstanding Visual Results in Cataract and LASIK Procedures
Utah Eye Centers, the leading comprehensive ophthalmology practice in northern Utah, announced today the Mount Ogden facility now offers eye surgery for cataracts and LASIK with an advanced laser system, the VICTUS® femtosecond laser platform. They are the only practice north of Salt Lake City with a fixed site femtosecond laser for cataracts and LASIK. The versatile VICTUS platform is designed to provide greater precision compared to manual cataract and LASIK surgery techniques. According to Scott Sykes, M.D., the Victus laser is the only laser approved to perform treatments for both cataract and LASIK surgeries.
“With the VICTUS platform, we are able to automate some of the steps that we have commonly performed manually,” said Mark Ballif, M.D. “While we have performed thousands of successful cataract and LASIK surgeries, the VICTUS platform helps us to improve the procedures to give our patients the best outcomes possible.”
The VICTUS platform features a sophisticated, curved patient interface with computer-monitored pressure sensors designed to provide comfort during the procedure. The VICTUS platform also offers real-time, three-dimensional imaging of the eye to aid Utah Eye Centers in planning and monitoring the operation. The laser itself has a rapid pulse rate that allows the portion of the Cataract and LASIK procedure performed on the VICTUS to be completed in just a few seconds.
“Everything about the VICTUS platform was designed to give us a greater degree of control and more real-time information during the procedure,” said Michael B. Wilcox, M.D. “The VICTUS laser enhances our ability to offer the latest, most advanced surgery to our cataract and LASIK patients and give them the results this community has come to expect from us.”
