Is A New Phaco Machine on your Wishlist?

With the holidays just around the corner, most of us have been planning, thinking, and buying gifts for our loved ones. There are fewer feelings better than when you give a gift that you knock out of the ballpark! You got exactly what they wanted, and it feels so rewarding to be generous!

As we roll into the holidays, work related topics are likely far from mind…as they should be. However, as the festivities come to an end, and we start to put our eyes on 2022, there are a few “wishlist” items for your OR that we think you should know about.

Is your OR still using old phaco technology for cataract surgery? What about your microscope? Are you spending valuable hours on managing your own lens consignments and case supplies?

Surgical Direct Inc is a capital-free solution that will increase your facility’s capacity for cataract surgery by outfitting your OR (single or multiple) with the latest cataract tech.

Sounds too good to be true, right? Wrong!

If your OR “wishlist” has any of the following on it, you should give us a call today!

1) New Phaco Machines

Stop using that old Infiniti or Signature. These machines were amazing in their day, but the technology is outdated and has been improved upon dramatically in the last 5-8 years. Sure, the old ‘tried and true’ may still work, but technology today is lightyears ahead of those platforms now, and every surgeon should have the option to use them. Surgical Direct outfits your OR with new technology, capital-expense free!

2) New Ophthalmic Microscopes

Along with the upgraded phaco technology, new ophthalmic microscopes have some amazing features that enhance the surgical experience for the surgeon. Features such as enhanced depth of field and 6x larger stable red reflux are just the beginning. Every ophthalmologist has one of these on their wishlist if they don’t have one yet, and just like phacos, we provide them capital-expense free.

3) Hands-off Lens Consignment Management

We work directly with the surgeon’s office for surgery day lens picks. We then bring all the surgeon’s lens picks for the day with us, including a full back-up consignment just in case there are any last minute changes. This includes primary, specialty, premium, and backup lenses. We’ve got the day fully covered!

4) Hands-off Case Supply Management

Including equipment provisions, our Mobile Cataract Service provides your facility with extensive case supply support, tailored to your facility and surgeon. This includes case disposables (blades, cannulas, viscoelastics, BSS, and more) and specialty items including but not limited to vitrectors, malyugin rings, iris hooks, and MIGS.

5) More help on Eye Day (Preferably someone who knows the specialty well)

Our cataract coordinators see cataract surgery every day. In fact, most have years of experience, seeing more cases that most nurses, which makes them quite a resource to surgeons and staff alike. From helping the surgeon with equipment settings, to sterile-field opening, to taking out the trash, our technicians don’t just stand around. They HELP the day go by efficiently and safely.


Come on, everyone has this on their wishlist! The simple truth is that having less on your plate will help reduce stress. But partnering with Surgical Direct doesn’t just reduce your workload, we take great pride in carrying these areas forward for you well. You’ll save capital dollars. You won’t have to manage supplies and lenses. You won’t have to worry about machine repairs or issues. The list goes on…

So, as you are enjoying some well-earned time off (hopefully) this holiday season, imagine a cataract program in your facility that has everything on your wishlist. Surgical Direct Inc is a partner that can get you there.
