The Zepto Capsulotomy System consists of a disposable Zepto capsulotomy handpiece that is attached to a small control console.
The capsulotomy tip has a soft, clear silicone suction cup that houses a round super elastic nitinol ring connected to electrical leads. The center of the suction cup is transparent when place inside the eye and allows the surgeon to perform a personalized capsulotomy using patient fixation to identify his or her visual axis.
The Zepto® capsultomy edge is unique and exhibits a slight roll-up that presents the untouched capsular under surface as the working capsulotomy edge during surgery. Biomechanical testing has shown the Zepto capsulotomy edge to be 2 to 4 times stronger than the Capsulotomy edge produced by either CCC or femtosecond laser.
