Alcon “Heads Up” system for complex eye surgeries

Lynn Eye Medical Group now has the Alcon Heads Up system for complex eye surgeries.

Alcon’s NGENUITY® 3D Visualization System allows retinal surgeons to operate looking at a high definition 3D screen, instead of bending their necks to look through the eye-piece of a microscope. Traditional vitrectomy surgeries range from 30 minutes to over three hours in length to complete. This microscope-free design is engineered to improve surgeons’ posture and may reduce fatigue.

Retina Surgery systemAlcon’s NGENUITY® 3D Visualization System (AKA “Heads-Up” system) allows retinal surgeons to operate looking at a high definition 3D screen, instead of bending their necks to look through the eye-piece of a microscope.

Traditional vitrectomy surgeries range from 30 minutes to over three hours in length to complete, therefore the better pasture during surgeries may reduce fatigue and thus benefit the patient. This microscope-free design is engineered to improve surgeons’ posture. The easier it is for surgeons to perform these long, delicate surgeries, the better they can perform for our patients who count on us to provide them with the best possible care. The NGENUITY 3D Visualization System offers greater depth and detail views during surgery. This system provides surgeons with better visualization while operating on the back of the eye, which may improve patient outcomes.

The system is designed to facilitate collaboration and teaching in the operating room. Offering an immersive panoramic surgical view, the NGENUITY 3D Visualization System allows the operating team to see exactly what the surgeon is seeing in real-time.
