The Centurion vision system is the latest phacoemulsification (modern technique for removing cataracts) technology from Alcon Inc. So far, our experience has shown as a few benefits that will translate into better patient outcomes.

Of the many benefits, we have found that we use less energy to remove the cataracts (called CDE – or cumulative dissipated energy), which results in less damage to intraocular structures – such as the corneal endothelium (the back surface of the cornea, which when damaged can lead to blurring of vision).

Talk to your eye surgeon about the Centurion system and learn more about phacoemulsification technique.
