Veterinary Ophthalmic Referrals has become the first ophthalmology practice (Veterinary or Human!) to invest in the Oertli system for phacoemulsification cataract surgery. Supplied by Device Technologies, this beautifully designed but elegantly simple Swiss-made surgical system takes cataract surgery to a new level.
Phacoemulsification is the technique where a cataract (lens) is broken up and removed with ultrasound energy through a micro-incision, followed by injection of a folded intraocular lens implant through the incision. As South Australia’s only Specialist Veterinary Ophthalmology practice, VOR remains the only veterinary service offering cataract surgery in animals in this state.
