Tips for buying Cataract Surgical Unit
- The most important considerations are safety and effectiveness.
- Another important factor is how comfortable the surgeon is using the system.
- Users should be able to operate the units remotely.
- The units should possess irrigation, irrigation/aspiration, ultrasound, diathermy, and vitrectomy operational modes.
- All hand pieces should weigh less than 5 oz.
- The following features are required for the US system hand piece: a piezoelectric transducer that causes the hand-piece tip to vibrate at a frequency of 25 to 80 kHz, a pulse mode, and made from autoclavable titanium.
- It is also recommended that the US hand piece should feel light and comfortable enough in the surgeon's hand; the response of the foot pedal control should be suitable; the system should deliver the objectives and the US output that the surgeon requires.
- The I/A hand piece should be autoclavable with 0.2-0.5 mm port diameters. It should have a peristaltic pump capable of 500 mmHg maximum vacuum, atmospheric vents, and gravity or pump reversal reflux.
- The anterior vitrectomy mode should utilize a guillotine type hand piece with variable speed.
- The following may come standard with the unit or as options purchased separately: ultrasonic capsulotomy, automated reflux, anterior or posterior vitrectomy, and diathermy capabilities.
- Buyers should examine the differences in cost between disposable and reusable I/A tubing, collection devices, and other equipment.
- Facilities performing many phacoemulsification procedures must remember that they need to sterilize most of the reusable equipment after every operation.
- Before making a purchase facilities should make sure that service support is readily available, and replacement or repair parts are easily identified and quickly obtainable.
- Free operation and maintenance training should be offered by the supplier, along with a clear, concise, and comprehensive instruction manual.
