During the CATALYS System procedure, the ocular surfaces are visualized by a proprietary, integrated Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) system. The OCT is enhanced by sophisticated algorithms designed to ensure that the femtosecond laser pulses are delivered precisely to the intended location.
Steps in the INTEGRAL GUIDANCE System process:
- Proprietary, 3D spectral-domain OCT imaging system visualizes the ocular surfaces
- Algorithms process the image, automatically and accurately maps surfaces and create safety zones
- The surgeon’s treatment plan is then customized, based on the patient’s ocular anatomy and the precise orientation of the eye
- After the surgeon confirms the customized treatment plan, the femtosecond laser pulses are delivered precisely to the intended location, maintaining the safety zones
