The Helix solution
OBVIOUSLY, A UNIQUE INNOVATION.
Based on surgeons' expectations, we have created HELIX, a new standard in automatic capsulorhexis for cataract surgery.
The laser technology patented by Ilasis gives the surgeon total control over the surgery while ensuring a perfect capsulorhexis without any risk.
HELIX combines a fiber laser and a specific handpiece developed according to the principles of frugal innovation. The capsulorhexis is performed in 20 milliseconds once the pupil is dilated and can be used on a closed eyeball even before the beginning of the operation.
The result is a perfectly circular capsulorhexis, centered according to the surgeon's judgment, allowing optimal positioning of even the most complex implants.
SEAMLESS INTEGRATION INTO THE OPERATING ROOM WORKFLOW
PROVEN FEMTOSECOND TECHNOLOGY FOR BETTER RESULTS
AN INTUITIVE HANDPIECE FOR QUICK ADOPTION
Economical and fast
FEMTOSECOND LASER BENEFITS AVAILABLE TO ALL PATIENTS
OUR VISION OF INNOVATION.
Making performance accessible to the greatest number of people
Technology is not an end in itself: we innovate to make surgical procedures easier for both experienced and novice surgeons, thus improving accessibility of care for patients.
Listening and starting first and foremost from use
Our innovations are rooted in reality and respond to a clearly identified need. It is by taking into account the expectations of surgeons that we are able to offer such high-performance and optimized devices.
Never be afraid to challenge ourselves
Striving to do better with less or keeping it simple in a highly demanding environment: it is only when you allow yourself to think differently that you can really make a difference.

What they say
I will use this system for all my patients.
Automatic capsulorhexis is a dream that will probably be accomplished in 2022 (source : europe.ophthalmologytimes.com )
We eagerly await the quality of femtosecond capsulorhexis with the simplicity of manual instruments.
