Please consult your Alcon representative to find out if the LAUREATE® World Phaco System is available in your area.
The LAUREATE® World Phaco System graphic user interface (GUI) is a simple, intuitive design delivering a logical surgically-based interface. Also, LAUREATE® is available in multiple languages to meet the needs of cataract surgeons throughout the world.
How it works
The GUI controls are based on pop-up menus which appear on the touch-screen of the LAUREATE® console. You can make adjustments or activate functions simply by pressing control buttons on the screen, via the foot switch or the remote control. There are 3 types of touch-screen displays available for the procedure: surgery screens, set-up screens and dialog screens.
Guide user through installation, priming, and testing of the fluidic system and handpieces.
Hyperpulse: improved control over pulse frequency and duty cycle simultaneously manages "on" and "off-time" along with power for controlled delivery of energy.*
Allow user to view and modify system, doctor, and surgical settings.
Linear Burst: variable "off-time" and independent power delivery add new levels of control.*
