Alcon’s SMARTCataract Demonstrates Enhanced Efficiency and Time Savings for Cata… – Press Release

  • Data presented at ASCRS 2022 highlights substantial time efficiencies for cataract surgery planned with SMARTCataract—based on real-world cases1
  • SMARTCataract capabilities now upgraded with connectivity to ORA SYSTEM with VerifEye+
  • Alcon Vision Suite—Alcon’s leading products, digital solutions and services ecosystem—will be showcased at Alcon’s ASCRS booth (#1411)

Alcon ALC, the global leader in eye care dedicated to helping people see brilliantly, today announced key data that will be presented at this year’s American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) meeting on its SMART Solutions for cataract surgery. SMARTCataract is the first application in Alcon’s comprehensive cloud-based platform uniquely designed for surgical ophthalmic practices. 2-6 The data shows significant time savings delivered during the cataract evaluation, planning process, operating room (OR) and postoperative (post-op) workflow for cataract patients.1

“SMARTCataract has delivered substantial time savings that benefit both my practice and my patients,” said Dr. Zachary Zavodni, Medical Director of The Eye Institute in Utah and lead investigator for the study. “Beyond driving efficiencies, evolving our practice to this digital cloud-based application has reduced tedious manual data entry for my staff, giving us peace of mind when it comes to accuracy, so I can focus on delivering optimal outcomes to my patients.”

SMARTCataract links data systems and most diagnostic devices, including ARGOS® Biometer with Image Guidance, with cataract surgical equipment, including LenSx® Femtosecond Laser and LuxOR® Revalia™ Ophthalmic Microscope. Now, the SMARTCataract application also connects via the cloud to Alcon’s Optiwave Refractive Analysis (ORA) SYSTEM® with VerifEye+, the only intraoperative aberrometer on the market. Alcon re-optimizes the ORA SYSTEM’s AnalyzORTM database of over 2 million cases each quarter with additional real-world cases to help improve…
