The Hague, Netherlands – Burlington MA, April 9, 2018 – Cassini, a pioneer in the development of corneal diagnostic solutions, announced today that it has received the distinction of presenting during the Ophthalmology Innovation Showcase at the annual Ophthalmology Innovation Summit (OIS@ASCRS) on April 12th in Washington DC. The event connects scientists, entrepreneurs, physicians, regulators, corporate leaders and venture capitalists to drive innovation within the eye-care market. The meeting immediately precedes the 2018 Annual Meeting of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS).
Mark Packer MD, Chief Medical Officer at Cassini will present an update on how its patented Total Corneal Astigmatism technology enables surgeons to achieve the desired refractive outcomes after cataract surgery. He observed that: “Direct measurement of the posterior cornea for the correction of astigmatism is becoming the hallmark of accurate refractive cataract surgery. We are excited to see surgeons and patients around the world benefitting from Cassini’s groundbreaking technology.”
In his presentation, Dr. Packer will highlight integration of Cassini preoperative imaging and diagnostic capabilities with iris registration for accurate correction of cyclorotation during femtosecond laser assisted cataract surgery (FLACS). Correction of cyclorotation is critical to the implantation of toric intraocular lenses for the reduction or elimination of astigmatism. Imaging and iris registration with Cassini allows increased efficiency in the cataract surgery workflow by eliminating the need for marking the eye with ink. In addition, wireless transmission of preoperative diagnostic data from Cassini reduces the risk of transcription errors and relieves the surgeon of second-guessing in the operating room.

Cassini pioneers smart and highly accurate corneal diagnostic solutions that are affordable, fast and user-friendly, providing care providers worldwide with advanced technology that best serves their patients.
Cassini helps cataract surgeons to better understand properties of the total corneal in order to improve outcomes and increase premium patient satisfaction and volume. Cassini offers a full suite of examinations required for toric, extended depth of focus and multifocal IOL implantation, including corneal topography, posterior corneal analysis, mesopic and photopic pupillometry and full color photography. The technology employs red, green yellow and infrared LEDs that are positioned in unique relationships, giving each one a GPS-like coordinate. Cassini employs the ray-tracing principle to measure relative position, using the color LEDs as triangulation points.
