OptimeyesTM and personalized eye surgery

Vor der OP webSituation - astigmatism management

About 75'000 cataract operations take place daily around the globe and now, with more options open to surgeons, the objective of cataract procedures is moving very quickly from visual rehabilitation to one of refractive enhancement.
OptimeyesTM is playing an important part in this momentum.
For 80% of the population whose astigmatism is less than 2.00DC there is now a new possibility to receive the best distance vision without the need for toric IOLs while also eliminating the need for distance glasses.
Until now this opportunity for surgeons and their cataract patients to be able to minimize astigmatism may not have happened because of toric IOL prices, surgery time pressures, insurance coverage limitations or lack of awareness of new options.


Solution - OptimeyesTM replaces guessing with knowing

Now, with OptimeyesTM you have the opportunity for real personalized eye surgery to accurately model and predict the outcome (on any residual astigmatism) which, in turn, is a much-needed benefit for your patients and their vision. The OptimeyesTM arcuate keratotomy surgery planning and optimization module features two different operation modes: Prediction and Optimization. Prediction calculates the post-surgery cornea, based on given AK parameters. Optimization calculates the optimal surgery parameters for the individual patient:
  • optical zone
  • incision length
  • incision depth
  • orientation

Reason to believe – personalized eye surgery

Our software and cloud-based servers simulate effects of physical interference planned for each individual cornea and deliver to you an accurate solution that considerably outperforms current, conventional, non-personalized methods such as nomograms.

How it works

The OptimeyesTM software from Optimo Medical offers surgeons a unique opportunity to deliver truly personalized surgery to their patients. This CE-Marked technology is based on customized biomechanical simulations and not on nomograms or statistical charts. OptimeyesTM creates a digital twin of your patient’s eye to remove the guesswork involved in astigmatism correction.

Step by step of the software:

  1. After the surgeon performs topography measurements of the patient's cornea, he or she imports the data into the OptimeyesTM software.
  2. The surgeon can then also adjust any relevant surgical parameters, for example, whether temporal or superior phaco tunnel incisions will be used. When clicking "Submit", the case is anonymized and automatically submitted to our server software, and the server builds a copy of the patient's eye, inside the computer, based on the topography and other surgeon-submitted information.
  3. With this clone, we basically dry run the surgery, creating an optimization loop based on our expert knowledge of corneal biomechanics and the effects of physical interference in order to obtain the best surgical parameters.
  4. Once we have the most favourable result— meaning the ideal reduction of astigmatism for that individual eye—the exact parameters generated by our finite element simulation are sent via the internet back to the surgeon's computer and a PDF report is generated. The surgeon then uses this report program the laser for the surgery.

Only OptimeyesTM provides in silico* patient-specific surgery planning for arcuate keratotomy astigmatism management in the course of cataract surgery.

*In silico means that the surgery planning is carried out virtually on a digital twin of the patient’s eye. It can also be used for Virtual Clinical Trials, for example, to try an idea before even building a prototype for it.
