TrueVision® 3D Surgical and Cassini® Announce Collaboration

TrueVision® 3D Surgical and i-Optics® Announce Collaboration to Integrate Diagnostics and Computer-Guidance in Cataract Surgery

Apr 18, 2013

Combination of technologies is expected to advance preoperative surgical planning and practice workflow efficiency

San Francisco, CA, USA (April 17 2013) — TrueVision® 3D Surgical and Cassini® announced today a collaboration designed to integrate the precision measurements of the Cassini® corneal diagnostic device with the TrueVision Refractive Cataract Toolset® surgical guidance system.

By combining these world-class technologies, the two companies continue to advance ophthalmic applications that allow corneal and cataract surgeons to measure astigmatism and deliver patient-specific treatments with digital precision. The Cassini® is the first corneal device to employ breakthrough color LED topography detection, while the TrueVision RC Toolset® offers precise incision alignment and customized lens positioning guidance during cataract surgery.

By removing a step in the pre-surgical cataract work-up, the two systems together can enhance speed and efficiency to shorten the pre-operative patient workflow. Blending the diagnostic accuracy of the Cassini® generated corneal analysis with seamless image transfer to the Refractive Cataract Toolset® will help to optimize patient workflow for cataract surgical practices, as well as provide precise data for use in the TrueVision® computer-guidance surgical applications.

About TrueVision®

TrueVision® and Cassini® will demonstrate the initial efforts in this collaboration to surgeons at the 2013 American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery in San Francisco, CA, taking place at the Moscone Center on April 20-23. Private demonstration meetings by appointment will take place in meeting room 10 in Hall E/Room 135.
TrueVision® 3D Surgical is the world leader in digital 3D visualization and guidance for microsurgery. Santa Barbara, California-based TrueVision® has developed and patented an intelligent, real-time, 3D surgical visualization and computer-aided guidance platform. The system enables surgeons to record surgery in 3D and to stream live video of the surgical field, making it an unparalleled teaching tool.  The company is focused on developing a suite of 3D guidance applications for microsurgery to improve surgical efficiencies and patient outcomes. The system is in use at hundreds of hospitals and institutions around the world.
