As a multifunctional surgical platform for advanced cataract surgery, the CataRhex 3 is as powerful as it is compact. The display is clearly laid out, the device is easy to use due its one function per button, and everything is streamlined. The surgical platform is also quick to start up: the system is ready to use just a few seconds after being switched on.


Even prior to the surgery, the CataRhex 3 reveals its user-friendly side. All connections can be accessed from the front of the device at the same operating height. All instruments are connected at the front using clear colour coding. The tubing system is suspended sterile on the front of the platform.

Control panel

The bright displays on the control panel are easy to read and give you precise information about surgical values and settings.

The pivotable display panel gives surgeon and assistant an unimpeded view. Up to 20 surgeons can be programmed to use the device.

Infusion pole / instrument trays
