Advantages of CO-MICS with easyTip


Coaxial Micro Incision Cataract Surgery (CO-MICS) has gained a momentum as intraocular lenses for such small incisions have become broadly available. 

Prof. Daniel Mojon relies almost exclusively on the innovative CO-MICS technology from Oertli, with incision sizes of just 1.6mm. Reducing the main incision from 2.2mm to 1.6mm halves the wound area and no longer induces astigmatism. These micro incisions allowed him to develop a new surgical method - his VIP technique.

NEW: Illumination and laser in one instrument


The peripheral eye tissue is not easily accessible and difficult to make visible? – No longer now! With the introduction of illuminated laser probes, we have THE all in one retinal solution with which peripheral retinal defects can be treated even more easily, safely and more efficient than before. Use our illuminated laser probes in combination with our ViPer scleral indentor – indenting, illuminating and laser in one instrument.

Discover the directional laser probes


The pioneering spirit in the OS 4 also becomes evident in the endo laser sector. With the directional laser probe by Oertli, the movability of the laser fiber opens up access far in to the periphery and allows the setting of a whole row of laser points by the finest movement of your fingertips. By simply moving the knob, the laser fiber can be bent in a controlled manner up to 90°. This also enables safe insertion and removal through the trocar system.
