RingBlade creates innovative tools designed to improve the performance of a critical step in cataract surgery, Anterior Capsulotomy. The traditional method, Continuous Curvilinear Circulorhexis, has several disadvantages that make difficult to obtain a perfect circle with a perfect diameter, affecting the successful of the surgeries.
Cataracts are the main cause of readily curable blindness. Treatment involves surgery to remove the diseased lens and replacement with an artificial Intraocular Lens (IOL). Patients are increasingly demanding premium IOLs that are multifocal, or toric to treat astigmatism. Some IOLs are tinted to improve specific vision needs. Implanting these lenses require more exacting surgery.
