Faros in vitreoretinal surgery

As a compact high-performance device, Faros has set new standard in terms of functionality and quality. The Caliburn trocar systems create ideal access to the posterior segment and allow for smooth cuts and superb wound tightness. The LED Goodlight technology ensures excellent light conditions. The pneumatic continuous flow-cutter benefits from Oertli’s unique fluidics concept by allowing for up to 10,000 cuts a minute and enables continuous flow and optimum portioning of vitreous body parts to be removed. The innovative Membrane FEELceps ensure strong and optimally dosed holding power and absolute precision.
