The Hague, Netherlands – Burlington MA, October 25th 2023 – CASSINI®, a leading innovator in ophthalmology, announced today that it has obtained approval to market all devices[1] that make up Cassini Connect in Canada – marking another significant step forward in Cassini’s mission to improve patient outcomes in ophthalmology through new, innovative technologies.

Cassini Connect is a digital cataract surgery suite designed to improve patient outcomes of all ophthalmic surgeons, independent from the set-up in the operating room. Cassini Connect is interoperable with all leading microscopes, making it a cost-effective solution without having to change existing workflows. The suite also significantly reduces manual marking, improving workflow efficiency.

 

The market introduction of Cassini Connect is a solution available to all surgeons and patients – creating an inclusive, efficient and safe environment. Mark Maire, Cassini’s CEO, commented: “This innovative suite also reduces manual marking and enhances accuracy and precision while saving valuable surgery time.

 

Dr. Johnny Gayton of Eyesight Associates, Georgia, USA commented: “Cassini Guidance automatically accounts for cyclotorsion, registers exceptionally fast and flows logically with my premium cataract procedure. And it nails the axis! Our improved outcomes have resulted in an increase in our number of premium IOLs and a decrease in our enhancement rate.

 

Cassini’s Chief Commercial and Product Officer, Ernst Serfontein, adds: Cassini Connect allows our surgeons to go digital with all of their patients, without spending a fortune or buying a new microscope. We have seen a very strong interest in Cassini Connect from surgeons in other countries, and we are very proud that we can finally offer the same invaluable solution to Canadian surgeons and their patients.” 

 

This newly obtained medical device license, for both the Cassini Ambient[1] and the Cassini Guidance System[1], offers the Canadian market the opportunity to go digital with the following unique benefits:

  • Agnostic: Seamless integration and effortless compatibility with existing microscopes
  • Affordable: Adaptable, economical solution that will minimize risk and maximize return – works with existing microscopes
  • Accurate: Enhanced precision and confidence with registration accuracy within 3 degrees[2], and continuous quality checks
  • Ease-of-use: Intuitive and effortless connectivity that simplifies and structures digital workflow
