Cataract of the eye is a normal part of aging, which results in a slowly progressive decrease in vision, especially in people older than sixty years of age. The only way to get rid of a cataract, and to restore sight, is to surgically remove the natural lens of the eye, and replace it with an artificial one.

Cataract surgery has become increasingly common and safe, given the rapid advances in technology over the last two decades.

Zepto Cataract surgery is the latest advancement in automated cataract surgery. “Zepto Capsulotomy Device” was developed around a decade ago. The device is disposable, handheld, and attached to a state of the art console. It is made of Nitinol alloy, which can be inserted through an almost 2mm incision of the cornea. It uses a built-in vacuum and fast, low-energy pulses of direct current to perform a perfectly centered and circular capsulotomy, each time.

Cases Where Zepto is Highly Recommended

  • One Eyed Patients
  • White Cataracts
  • Hard Brown Cataracts
  • Corneal Opacities
  • Subluxated Cataracts
  • Cataracts in Children

Benefits

  • Precision and safety
  • Sharper vision with less incidence of haloes, glare and ghost images
  • Low cost
  • Reduced surgical time
  • Predictable results
  • Suitable for patients with corneal opacities, small pupils, and co-morbidities
  • Better results in complex cases like intumescent cataract, children with cataract, subluxated lens (in which the capsular bag is itself not stable due to trauma or disease) and calcification of the capsular bag

After obtaining the CE Mark in Europe, Zepto was launched outside the US market in 2017. The first Zepto Pulse Cataract surgery, popularly called Zepto Cataract, was performed by Dr. Sanjay Chaudhary at Eye7 Chaudhary Eye Centre, Daryaganj, in the same year.
