Faros MAKING THE DIFFERENCE WITH EXCELLENT FUNCTIONALITY

FAROS

The Faros surgical platform enables eye surgery of the highest level while constantly remaining comfortable and intuitively operable. Constructed on a modular basis, Faros is available as a pure phaco device, but can be extended to become a combined system for the anterior and posterior segment. The precise flow control makes the surgeon’s work even simpler and safer than before. The easyPhaco technology brings about unsurpassed chamber stability. The HF capsulotomy allows for an incredibly simple capsulorhexis. In addition, Faros has an integrated HFDS application for glaucoma surgery, the innovative continuous flow cutter for traction-free vitreous body removal and up-to-date LED technology. Make the difference – with Faros by Oertli.

Perfect control of fluidics

Making best possible use of fluidics and physics has always been a distinct feature of Oertli that resulted in its establishment as an innovative leader in this sector of ophthalmology. In the Faros device, the impressive fluidics system is no doubt one of the key elements for the exceptional performance of this platform. It uses the laws of physics in a perfect manner and is therefore not dependable on complicated electronics and sensor systems prone to error. The perfect flow control of the peristaltic principle enables finest control and absolute precision. The overwhelming power of the pump creates high speed and suction power if required. Hygiene and absence of contamination are ensured at any time as a result of the closed pressure measuring system

The powerful pedal

With the dual linear pedal of the Faros device, surgeons can rely on a sensitive, multifunctional and highly efficient control unit. The pedal absorbs all movements of your foot in a fatigue-free manner and boasts unsurpassed precision even with difficult manoeuvres. Moreover, it is a reliable control centre with an impressive range of functionality. You can easily define the commands of the pedal yourself – for example switching between programmes, modulation of ultrasound power output, activation of override or altering the height of the bottle. Thus, you can comfortably store and retrieve preferences of up to 50 surgeons.

Precise flow control

In the Faros device, the perfect flow control of the peristaltic pump ensures finest possible control and absolute precision. Vacuum build-up happens in the shortest possible time. Then, flow and vacuum become the surgeon’s dynamic tool and enable incredibly fast and extremely precise surgery. In the anterior segment, this is accomplished by means of the easyPhaco technology, in the posterior segment by means of the Caliburn trocar system and the continuous flow cutter.

Simple and safe operation

Irrespectively of whether it is cataract surgery, vitreoretinal surgery or glaucoma surgery – if surgeries are performed, there is no time left to struggle with complex menu structures or hard-to-handle operational processes. Interventions need to run smoothly and efficiently. Therefore, the Faros surgical platform is fully and focused on user-friendliness. Entries and commands can be performed via pleasant tangible keys. Each of the carefully arranged command keys always has the same function, which can be activated instantly by key pressure. There is no faster or clearer way – this is DirectAccess.

Goodlight LED technology

In vitrectomy surgery, it is essential the surgeon can see things clearly. At the same time, the patient’s eye should be strained as little as possible. The light sources generally used in eye surgery are LED, xenon, halogen and metal halide. Oertli relies on the LED technology that offers a perfect mixture for visualisation, contrast seeing and safety.

Accessories of unique quality

As all Oertli devices, the Faros surgical platform is a closed system that does not only comprise perfectly suited instruments but also tailor-made device accessories. The handy instrument table offers a lot of space and can easily be placed aside if not needed. The transparent protective cover ensures the Faros is well protected from dust and dirt.

Instruments

Everything that matches has come together in the Faros device. This applies to instruments to a particularly high degree. All instruments are perfectly integrated into the surgical system. The hand pieces of high-quality titanium are ergonomic master accomplishments that demonstrate tailor-made perfection in every respect. The Caliburn trocar systems are very sharp and enable excellent wound tightness. And, easyPhaco is a success story for itself.
