One Advanced Laser. Four Treatment Modalities
The new Tango Reflex™ from Ellex combines multiple treatment platforms — SLT for glaucoma, laser vitreolysis for floaters, and capsulotomy and iridotomy treatments – in a single laser system. Featuring an intuitive tablet user interface, the multi-modality Tango Reflex™ allows you to perform the full range of anterior and poster YAG laser procedures, as well as SLT, with greater precision and clinical efficacy.
1. SLT FOR GLAUCOMA
Utilize SLT as an effective first-line glaucoma therapy – and eliminate the issues of patient compliance and medication side effects. A simple in-office procedure, selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) has been shown to lower IOP as effectively as medication, and to offer a consistent safety profile. Best of all, it is efficacious at every stage of the glaucoma treatment algorithm. On average, SLT achieves a reduction in IOP of 30% when used as a first-line option.
2. LFR FOR FLOATERS
Adopt LFR to reduce or eliminate the debilitating visual disturbance caused by symptomatic floaters. Laser Floater Removal (LFR) involves the use of a specially designed nano-pulsed YAG laser to vaporize floaters. Compared to its early clinical use in the 1980s, modern LFR provides more efficient and safer energy profiles —offering reliable and repeatable outcomes with a low rate of complications and a high degree of patient satisfaction.
Cut tissue more efficiently, and with less cumulative energy, to create a perfectly centred, precise capsulotomy. A precise capsulotomy is essential for IOLs that correct presbyopia through implantation in the posterior chamber’s capsular bag. Tango Reflex™ creates a capsulotomy opening that is precisely controlled, without causing damage to the lens – even if the lack of a ridge makes the capsule adhere to the optic.
Create a small, precise iridotomy to exacting precision – and with a reduced risk of lens pitting. With refractive IOLs, the iridotomy aperture must be large enough to ensure a balanced aqueous flow, yet small enough so that no light is transmitted back to the pupil. The Tango Reflex™ enables you to create a precise size of the iridotomy, often in a single shot that uses lower energy than other YAG lasers.
