Intra-surgical Evaluation of CATS Tonometer Prism and Abbott Medical Optics Versus Alcon Phacoemulsification Machines


Brief description of study

This study will measure the dynamic real-time IOP in the anterior chamber during standard phacoemulsification surgery. What is known: - Fluidics control is determined to be one of the primary drivers of physician decision making in choosing phacoemulsification equipment. - Active pressure system fluidic control has a perceived and possibly real (based upon recent literature) improvement in intra-cameral IOP stability and reduced pressure fluctuations. - Improved fluidics can allow for reduced dynamic IOP fluctuations, in-the-bag positioned phaco tip, and intra-cameral fluid flow all of which will likely improve corneal health post-operatively.
