ELLIPS® FX HANDPIECE

Engineered for exceptional ultrasound efficiency, the ELLIPS® FX Handpiece uses continuous elliptical tip movement for optimal phaco productivity.

  • Delivers smooth, efficient cutting
  • Helps reduce phaco time1
  • Resulted in less corneal edema and lower endothelial cell loss than the Alcon OZil Handpiece1*,**
  • Concentrates heat at the hub, keeping it away from the incision2
  • Compatible with all Johnson & Johnson Vision phaco tips, curved, flared or straight

For use with the WHITESTAR SIGNATURE® PRO Phacoemulsification SystemCOMPACT INTUITIV System, WHITESTAR Signature® Phacoemulsification System and SOVEREIGN® Compact Phacoemulsification System.

WHITESTAR® PHACO HANDPIECE

The WHITESTAR® Phaco Handpiece is an ultrasonic handpiece designed to facilitate removal of the natural lens during cataract surgery. Using longitudinal vibrations, it moves at an ultrasonic frequency to emulsify the cataract and aspirate the debris through the hollow needle.

For use with the WHITESTAR Signature® System and SOVEREIGN® Compact System.

FOOTNOTES

*Corneal edema observed at one day postoperatively; endothelial cell loss observed at one day and one month postoperatively.

**OZil is a trademark of Novartis AG.

INDICATIONS AND IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION FOR THE ELLIPS® FX PHACO HANDPIECE AND WHITESTAR® PHACO HANDPIECE

Rx Only

INDICATIONS

The WHITESTAR® Phaco Handpiece is utilized during the phacoemulsification procedure to break up (emulsify) the nucleus of the cataractous lens and remove the remaining nuclear fragments.

INDICATIONS

The ELLIPS® FX Phaco Handpiece is utilized during the phacoemulsification procedure to break up (emulsify) the nucleus of the cataractous lens and remove the remaining nuclear fragments.

CAUTIONS

Never attempt to straighten a bent needle. This will products a broken tip when phaco power is applied. Do not clean the phaco handpiece with any type of ultrasonic cleaning device; it will damage the piezoelectric crystals. Do not use tap water for cleaning. Do not sterilize the handpiece prior to performing the cleaning procedure described in the directions for use.

PRECAUTIONS

Only use this ELLIPS® FX Phaco Handpiece and WHITESTAR® Phaco Handpiece with the WHITESTAR Signature® or SOVEREIGN® Compact version 5.2 or higher phacoemulsification machines. Overall system performance may be impaired when used in combination with non-AMO products. It is important that the electrical connector on the handpiece is completely dry prior to connecting it to the WHITESTAR Signature® or SOVEREIGN® Compact phacoemulsification machine receptacles. Moisture will prevent the handpiece from operating properly and you may receive a handpiece error message on the panel display of the phacoemulsification machine if the connector is wet.

WARNINGS

Improper/inadequate cleaning may result in particulate matter adhering to the instrument and exfoliation of particles into the surgical field. In addition, the function and life expectancy of the phaco handpiece may become compromised. The use of gas sterilization is not recommended. The surgical staff must monitor the balanced salt solution height and fluid level at all times. A low bottle/bag height or empty bottle/bag affects the fluid balance and the intraocular pressure (IOP) while aspirating and can result in: Inadvertent chamber shallowing or collapse, aspiration or abrasion of iris or other eye tissue, an ultrasonic wound heating commonly called wound burn (extreme case)

ATTENTION
