Faros MAKING THE DIFFERENCE WITH POWER LED
The Faros surgical platform facilitates eye surgery at the highest level while remaining comfortable and intuitive to use. The precise
fluid control provided by the peristaltic pump makes the surgeon’s work even easier and safer.
The unique SPEEP pump provides control over both vacuum and flow. The easyPhaco technology creates a stable anterior chamber. The HF capsulotomy tip ensures impressively easy capsulorhexis.
The innovative Continuous Flow Cutter enables traction-free vitreous body removal and the new Power LED light source provides 45% more light power1 in the posterior segment. Faros also includes an integrated HFDS application for glaucoma surgery if required.
Make the difference – with the Faros by Oertli.
The compact platform for superior tasks
Faros from Oertli is the efficient and powerful surgical platform for cataract and glaucoma surgery and vitrectomy. The device impresses with its precision, versatility, innovative technology and high user comfort, all packed into an extremely compact design.
Features of the Faros
The SPEEP pump uses the same principle as a peristaltic pump2 to control the flow. SPEEP also allows the vacuum to be controlled with the foot pedal.
Fluidics based on physics. Thanks to Oertli's fluidics concept, easyPhaco allows a direct fragment followability and provides a strong fragment holdability.
HFDS stands for High Frequency Deep Sclerotomy. In micro-invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS), HFDS creates a direct access from anterior chamber to the Schlemm canal and further into the sclera.
The powerful pedal
The dual-linear foot pedal is the versatile control unit of the Faros. Made of robust metal and processed with highest precision, the pedal absorbs the surgeon’s commands instantaneously and with a great deal of sensitivity.
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. The impressive fluidics system is no doubt one of the key elements for the exceptional performance of this platform.
Simple and safe operation
The Faros boasts a consistently clear overview and utmost user convenience. Everything is clearly and easily readable. Moreover, the surgical platform is ready for action incredibly quickly: After switching the system on, it is ready for operation within seven seconds.
Power LED technology
Thanks to the new Power LED technology, the light power in the Faros has been increased by an additional 45%1 for optimal illumination and visualisation during all manoeuvres up to the periphery.
Anterior & posterior segment device
The compact Faros is available as a unit for the anterior segment or as a combined system for the anterior and posterior segments.
An important criterion during eye surgery is a stable intraocular pressure (IOP). To maintain this IOP, the Faros offers two options of infusion systems: the active as well as the gravity infusion.
