Cataracts are a common disease, accounting for 50% of blindness in people over the age of 65 years worldwide.
‘imass’ is a disposable surgical instrument that performs anterior capsulotomy, the most difficult step in the cataract surgery process. The reason why anterior capsulotomy is difficult is that the doctor must manually set the same shape and exact center every time. The unique feature of ‘imass’ is that it solves this problem by incising the anterior capsule in a uniform size (5mm), and the operation can be completed in 15 seconds, providing comfort and safety to both doctors and patients.
