Staar CE-marks SonicWAVE phacoemulsification system:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Staar Surgical has CE-marked for sale in Europe its SonicWAVE phacoemulsification system for removing a cataract lens from the eye. This is achieved by using low frequency (40-400Hz) sonic pulses, a process which avoids the generation of heat and reduces the risk of corneal burns. This is an area on which the industry has focused increasingly over recent years, says the Monrovia, California firm. Staar, which plans to begin shipping the product this month, estimates that the European market for cataract removal equipment and accessories is worth around $300 million.
