  • ‘ZEPTO’ likely to be a game changer for cataract surgeries, says Dr Luthra

    ‘ZEPTO’ likely to be a game changer for cataract surgeries, says Dr Luthra

    At Bombay Ophthalmologists Association’ FOCUS 2017 Silver Jubilee Conference, Dr Gaurav Luthra, President, Intraocular Implant and Refractive Society of India, was one of the 17 eye surgeons who performed live surgery at Sir JJ Hospital that was relayed at Hyatt Regency, Sahara, Mumbai. He demonstrated a new cataract surgery called ZEPTO.

    “The ZEPTO cataract surgery which I demonstrated today is the new surgery for cataract which has just been introduced worldwide. It has come to India first and still not available in the US. It was in trials for last 3 years but it was launched only 3 months back after all the approvals. It is called ZEPTO cataract surgery. During the live surgery, I demonstrated two things- ZEPTO and a new type of lens which is introduced recently Tridiff,” said Dr Luthra.

    About the surgery, Dr Luthra explained that it is a new innovation for one of the critical step of cataract called capsulorhexis. “When we do cataract surgery, one of the steps which is critical is called capsulorhexis. If you don’t have a perfect capsulorhexis you cannot put the lens properly in the eye and the result will be compromised,” said Dr Luthra.

    Normally capsulrohexis used to be done manually using fine needle, informed Dr Luthra.

     “This machine is able to give perfect rehxis. It has a success rate of 99.9%. There are two aspects of the capsulorhexis with ZEPTO. One is that it gives perfect rhexis and dependability. The other is that it is consistent and gives you 100% surety. The perfect rhexis is stronger than what you can do manually and it is affordable,” said Dr Luthra.

    He further said that laser cataract surgeries can also give a perfect rhexis but is cost prohibitive. “We can make perfect rhexis with laser surgery cataract but everyone can’t afford it. But with the introduction of ZEPTO, the surgery is now affordable. It is likely to be a game changer for all cataract surgeries,” said Dr Luthra. ‘ZEPTO’ likely to be a game changer for cataract surgeries, says Dr Luthra Dr Gaurav Luthra, President, Intraocular Implant and Refractive Society of India

    Talking about the lens he used in the live surgery, Dr Luthra said it is a special lens called Tridiff lens. “Normally, when we put lens in the eye for cataract surgery we use monofocal lenses. With a monofocal lens all you can see is things that are at a distance. But one has to use reading glasses and computer glasses too. So after cataract surgery, people have to use bifocal or trifocal lens, which are not comfortable and many people don’t like it,” said Dr Luthra. He said the whole aim of doing cataract is to give good vision.

    “Now, there are three focuses that is near intermediate and distance. And Tridiff lens has all 3 focuses in it. Which enables people to read, work on a computer and see at a distance without glasses.Tridiff is advanced technology lens made in India and exported worldwide,” said Dr Luthra.
