The Ultra Q Reflex incorporates a proprietary slit lamp illumination tower design, which converges the operator’s vision, the target illumination, and the treatment beam along the same optical path and onto the same optical plane. The illumination tower can be used coaxially to enhance the view of the target opacity and more effectively vaporize it.
“I think it is vitally important for the surgeon to appreciate spatial context. It is crucial to understand how far behind the lens you can treat. I utilize the on-axis feature first to visualize a floater against the red-glow background (to help visualize floaters in the middle and posterior vitreous), and then I go off-axis to determine how far behind the lens it is. If the floater is hard to see in off-axis mode then I know that it is safe to treat since off-axis setting only allows for visualization 1-2 mm behind the lens.”
