Presbia PLC, an ophthalmic device company introduced its new, innovative disposable inserter for the Presbia Flexivue Microlens at the Australasian Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons (AUSCRS) conference held from October 7th through the 10th in Noosa, Queensland, Australia. The Presbia Flexivue Microlens is a proprietary optical lens implant for treating presbyopia, the age-related loss of near-vision. With its simplified action, the new inserter further reduces the time required to complete the Presbia Flexivue Microlens procedure, allowing surgeons to safely complete more procedures per hour of surgery time.
The disposable inserter meets the requests of many surgeons and their staffs to have single-use instruments in their clinics to minimize the risk of patient infection. The disposable inserter compliments Presbia’s reusable inserter, widely-used today, offering surgeons an option to select the instrument that best suits their needs.
