Launch of R-Evo smart by Optikon

A world premiere for Optikon’s new compact equipment for cataract and retinal surgery

Optikon, the Italian manufacturer with long-term expertise in ophthalmic equipment and a member of the PhysIOL Group, introduces new compact equipment that will revolutionize ophthalmic surgery. The CE approved device was unveiled at the 36th Congress of the European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons (ESCRS) in Vienna.

R-Evo smart® is the only equipment in the compact-sized segment that provides a full set of advanced features such as Adaptive Fluidics based on a twin-pump (venturi/peristaltic), Advanced Infusion System with forced irrigation and Dynamic IOP Control System, as well as the patented Minimal Stress technology.

The Dual Function Cataract Vitreoretina (DFCV) model also features two high-efficiency LED light sources and high-speed vitrectomy (up to 10K cuts/min) thanks to the dual-action cutting probes of the TwedgeTM technology.

Anterior and posterior segment surgeries can be performed with the same cassette, which is available in disposable and reusable versions.

R-Evo smart® is available in three different models, two for cataract surgery (E and S) and one for cataract and vitreo-retinal surgeries (CR), all equipped with a dual linear footpedal and a user-friendly GUI touch-screen.

“R-Evo smart® combines outstanding performance with innovative features for everyday cost-effectiveness”, said Giuseppe Pugliese, the newly appointed CEO of Optikon.“Thanks to this high technology platform, PhysIOL Group aims to become the leader in the compactsized segment of the surgical equipment market.”
