Indications - PerfectPupil®
expands and keeps a small and/or constricting pupil dilated
to 7 mm throughout the surgical procedure. This helps treat
(intraoperative floppy iris syndrome) patients more proficiently.
It is designed to provide the surgeon with an optimal work
area and reduce the risk of surgical complications during
cataract and retinal surgery. Small and constricting pupils
account for approximately 4% of all cataract surgeries and
are deemed complex cataract cases, and physician reimbursable
in the USA under CPT code # 66982.
Maintaining a 7 mm pupil is important during cataract surgeries
to retain visibility of the capsular bag when performing capsulorrhexis
and phacoemulsification; and during vitrectomy procedures
to optimize visibility of the posterior chamber. Improved
visibility reduces the risk of surgical complications and
results in better surgical outcomes.
