Smithtown, NY (PRWEB) October 16, 2010
Jeffrey Martin, M.D., F.A.C.S., a Board-certified cataract and LASIK surgeon based in Suffolk County, Long Island, has been selected by Alcon Laboratories to deliver a lecture on Torsional Phaco.
Dr. Martin is one of only four ophthalmologists to be selected on this panel of experts who have performed thousands of cataract and ophthalmic laser procedures.
The lecture will be delivered during the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) annual meeting and convention to be held in Chicago from October 16 to 19, 2010.
Dr. Martin will discuss the Torsional ultrasound procedure which is a revolutionary new phacoemulsification technology that produces a side-to-side motion of the phaco tip as opposed to the forward-and-backward motion of traditional ultrasound techniques.
This OZil torsional technology is only available on the Infiniti Vision System (both from Alcon Laboratories, Inc., Fort Worth, Texas), a leading developer and manufacturer of ophthalmic technology and equipment.
From a patient's perspective, this new technology reduces potential trauma to the eyes, thereby improving the safety and effectiveness of the cataract surgery procedure. It also makes the process more efficient for the surgeon.
