Going Beyond Laser

ZEPTO® advances surgical precision and contributes to long term visual outcomes.

Optimizing Your Advanced Cataract Surgery Outcomes with Zepto®:

During the capsulotomy, your physician will carefully remove the top of the capsular bag to access and remove your cataract.

A well-formed capsulotomy is a fundamental step to ensuring an optimal outcome. The capsulotomy should be centered in the middle of the eye and circular.
ZEPTO® automates the capsulotomy process and Dr. Griffin uses a micro-sized handpiece to create a precise circular capsulotomy on your visual axis.

Leading Ophthalmic Surgeon, Dr. Griffin has performed many laser cataract surgeries in the past and has been certified on three different cataract laser systems since 2012. The most significant advantage of using the laser during cataract surgery is the precise opening, capsulotomy, it performs on the capsule membrane that surrounds the cloudy cataract lens. Zepto® is a device that was designed specifically to perform a precise capsulotomy.

Dr. Griffin prefers Zepto® over the current lasers because Zepto® is performed as a routine step during the actual cataract surgery. The Zepto® microsurgical technology is incorporated into the actual cataract surgery procedure and does not extend the procedure time. Most cataract laser systems require that patients make a separate stop prior to the operating room for the laser procedure. Most laser systems require that a suction applanation device be placed on the eye before the cataract procedure and they all extend the overall procedure time. 

  • Manual Capsulotomy: Performed by hand, your surgeon tears an opening in the capsular bag. It can be difficult to create a perfectly circular shape. Imperfections in the capsulotomy may cause adverse effects for your vision over time.
  • ZEPTO® Precision Cataract Surgery: ZEPTO® automates the capsulotomy process. With ZEPTO®, your doctor uses a micro-sized handpiece to create a precise, circular capsulotomy on your visual axis.
