ASICO Launches New Intraoperative Toric Marker
ASICO has launched a new intraoperative toric marker designed by Takayuki Akahoshi, MD, that combines gauge and marker (AE-2933), according to a company news release.
The marker has an outer diameter of 10 mm that allows for better visibility when used for patients with smaller eyes and narrow eye lids. The marker features two arrows (or pegs) placed at 0 and 180 degrees for aligning with the preoperative reference marks. The handle is designed at an oblique angle to ensure visibility is not hampered while marking the intraoperative mark. This marker features a unique marking pattern that allows it to be used as a CCC guide by making a circular mark of 5.3mm, according to ASICO.

Nishi IOL Haptic Fixation Forceps
During the externalization of the haptics of an IOL for scleral fixation, exact grasping the tip of the haptic is important. When it is grasped proximally of the tip, even though a little, and drawn out through the ciliary sulcus, the top of the haptic will be bent or even broken. ASICO's Nishi IOL Haptic Fixation Forceps (AE-4904) facilitates grasping the haptic tip easily and appropriately. Its top is bent and has a groove, so that it is able to grasp the haptic tip not perpendicularly but rather along the haptic. This facilitates further a more smooth externalization act leading the haptic in the aiming direction.

ASICO Launches Nagy Chopper
ASICO has recently launched the Nagy Chopper (AE-2559) - tools to assist while performing Femtolaser-assisted cataract surgery, according to a company news release.\
ASICO has launched a special chopper with Dr. Zoltan Nagy for femtosecond laser assisted cataract surgery. During femto-laser pretreatment, the laser creates fragmentation lines within the crystalline lens. This chopper is able to crack the nucleus meticulously along the fragmentation lines created by the laser, helping the surgeons to remove the halved nucleus or quadrants during phacoemulsification more easily.
