New tech helps doctors focus on better eye care
VISALIA – A Visalia eye care group is seeing patient health in a whole new way.
Last month, Eye Surgical & Medical Associates in Visalia announced it is now using the Ngenuity 3D Visualization System, which features next-generation technologies to provide surgeons with more precision, depth and detail during eye surgery. Dr. Michael Boone said bringing the technology into the operating room confirms his practice’s commitment to offering excellent care to patients needing cataract surgery.
“In our practice, we are always looking for the latest technologies that will assist our surgeons during surgery,” said Michael Boone M.D. “The Ngenuity 3D Visualization System allows our surgeons to get through surgeries with less fatigue and helps us provide the very best possible care to our patients.”
Developed by Alcon, a global leader in eye care technology, the Ngenuity 3D Visualization System uses a 3D, high-definition digital video camera, and workstation to provide magnified images of objects during micro-surgery. It acts as an adjunct to the surgical microscope during surgery displaying real-time images, or images from recordings. The images offer greater depth, detail and color contrast, enables surgeons to operate under lower light levels to minimize exposure to the patient’s eye, and allows surgeons to view a large high definition screen rather than bending their necks to look through a microscope, which improves their posture and helps reduce fatigue.
Eye Surgical & Medical Associates covers a wide range of eye care services including: exams for the whole family, contact lens and glasses fitting, low vision services, as well as cataract, retinal, refractive and cosmetic surgery.
