Bausch + Lomb announced the presentation of 14 scientific posters involving the company’s ophthalmic surgical technologies at the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) annual meeting, which will take place from July 23-27, 2021, in Las Vegas.
“We are always pleased to have surgeons sharing new scientific findings related to our products,” said Chuck Hess, vice president and general manager, US Surgical, Bausch + Lomb. “The presentation of this data helps clinicians learn more about the benefits of these technologies and how to employ them in ways that will further the ophthalmic surgical field and help deliver excellent outcomes for their patients.”
Ten of the presentations discuss the clinical performance of one or more of Bausch + Lomb’s enVista, Crystalens and Trulign IOL platforms. Two posters will highlight the results of studies in which investigators used the cloud-based eyeTELLIGENCE clinical decision support software, which is available exclusively on the Stellaris Elite vision enhancement system, to evaluate energy and fluidics metrics and analyze the impact of COVID-19 on ophthalmic surgeries. Another poster will compare the refractive astigmatism prediction accuracy of Emmetropic Verifying Optical toric calculator. A final poster will feature a clinical evaluation of the safety and efficacy of the ClearVisc dispersive ophthalmic viscosurgical device, which was approved by the FDA for use in ophthalmic surgery in April 2021.
