TrueVision® Announces Haag-Streit LENSTAR Product Integration to Enhance Surgical Planning and Computer-Guided Surgery for Astigmatic Correction

Added pre-operative device support to enhance the IOLcompass Platform

SANTA BARBARA, CA USA – (November 14, 2017) TrueVision® Systems a world leader in digital visualization and augmented reality guidance for microsurgery today announced the integration between the Haag-Streit LENSTAR optical biometer and TrueVision’s patented TruePlan® and IOLcompass computer guidance software for use in cataract and refractive procedures using Leica Microsystems surgical microscopes.

The partnership combines the ophthalmology industry’s most notable medical technology companies creating a best-in-class mapping and guidance solution. “With accurate incision and lens guidance/alignment from IOLcompass along with the market leading technology of Lenstar from Haag-Streit, surgeons and patients benefit from pre-planning to post-op with this collaboration.” said Burton Tripathi, TrueVision Chief Technical Officer. “Integrating these industry standard technologies is a win for surgeons who place accuracy and workflow efficiency at the top of their list.”

Lenstar provides highly accurate laser optic measurements for every section of the eye − from the cornea to the retina. With its integrated Hill RBF, Olsen and Barrett IOL calculation methods and the optional Toric Planner featuring the Hill RBF Toric, Barrett Toric Calculator and Olsen Toric, Lenstar supplies the user with latest technology in IOL prediction for any patient.

IOLcompass generates templates on the live surgical field of view using Leica Microsystems surgical microscopes to aid surgeons in navigating Toric lens alignment and LRI/AK incisions during cataract and refractive procedures. IOLcompass aids surgeons by providing dynamic guidance of the live surgical view via on-screen templates that are sharply displayed in ultra-HD.

A cornerstone of the Digital Microscope Platform, IOLcompass includes multiple features that improve surgical workflow, expand microscope integration and extend functionality.
