Faros MAKING THE DIFFERENCE WITH leading innovation
The Faros surgical platform enables eye surgery of the highest level while constantly remaining comfortable and intuitively operable. The precise flow control makes the surgeon’s work even simpler and safer than before. The unique SPEEPMode makes both ﬂow and vacuum easily controllable, which boasts unsurpassable ﬂuidics as a result. 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.

The compact platform for superior tasks
Oertli’s Faros device is the efficient and powerful surgical platform for cataract, vitrectomy and glaucoma surgery. The device boasts great perfection, versatility and innovative technology, as well as high user-comfort. Its exceptional functionality is found in a compact design.
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 unique SPEEPMode makes both flow and vacuum easily controllable, which boasts unsurpassable fluidics as a result.more about fluidics
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.more about the pedal
Precise flow control
The perfect ﬂow control of the peristaltic principle enables the ﬁnest degree of control and absolute precision. The outstanding high-performance capacity of the pump pro-vides for speed and suction power if required – by using easyPhaco in the anterior segment and by means of the Caliburn trocar system and the Continuous Flow Cutter in the posterior segment.
The unique SPEEPMode is based on a peristaltic pump system, but the roll can be turned in both directions. Both the ﬂow (up to 50 ml/min) and the vacuum (up to 600 mmHg) can be precisely dosed by means of the SPEEPMode.
The pump wheel can be triggered instantaneously and offers very fine manipulation options both in the anterior and posterior segment. The surgeon can control the hold-ing power (vacuum) very precisely via the pedal. The flow can be set as a constant value in the SPEEPMode and is actively regulated during surgery by the Faros system.
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.more about the operation
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.more about the LED technology
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.
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.more about the instruments
