Saying Goodbye to the Alcon Infiniti

Upgrading from the Alcon Infiniti is seamless and capital expense-free with Surgical Direct

Recently, Alcon officially announced via customer letters their plans to phase out the production of parts, tubing packs, and supplies that support their 20 year old phaco platform, the Alcon Infiniti Vision System.

The Alcon Infiniti has proven to be a dependable and reliable phaco machine that many ophthalmologists still use and trust for surgery. With the recent announcement that tubing packs will be manufactured at a significantly limited scale until 2023 (at which point they will be discontinued), the Alcon Infiniti era is coming to a close, and soon ophthalmologists and surgical suites will be forced to upgrade to newer platforms.

Upgrading To Alcon Centurion Has Big Benefits

Infiniti’s successor, the Alcon Centurion, was released in 2013 and introduced some of the biggest phaco technology upgrades we’ve seen in decades.

1) Active Fluidics

Sensor-directed plates that control the flow of fluid in the system (instead of traditional gravity fluidics) dramatically increases the safety of the procedure. Active fluidics allow for constant IOP thresholds that are monitored by the nanosecond and auto adjust while the surgeon works. This makes the operation environment “quiet” and safe.

2) Balanced Tip Technology

The balanced tip (only available for use with the Centurion) harnesses the torsional power in a different way, dispersing energy more efficiently. What does this mean? This means that less energy can be used per case to achieve desired results. Even at lowered power outputs, the “Balanced Tip” can cut more efficiently, reducing the cumulative dissipated energy in the eye.

3) Surgical Experience Enhancements

The wireless foot pedal, a dynamic and user-friendly GUI, and adjustable everything all work together to create a far superior surgical experience of using the Centurion versus the Infiniti.

There are numerous reasons to switch from the Infinit to the Centurion, and the above 3 just scratch the surface of the improvements waiting for you!
