The B&L Stellaris Elite Vision Enhancement System.
B&L is still the only ophthalmic surgical manufacturer that combines the ability to perform both posterior segment and anterior segment cases using the same system. The B&L Stellaris Elite continues this smart and convenient feature, making the Stellaris Elite a viable system for both cataract and retina surgeons alike.
1) Cataract Surgery
The Stellaris Elite introduces several exciting technologies to cataract surgery, namely Adaptive Fluidics™ and Atune® Energy.
Adaptive Fluidic technology from B&L provides the surgeon with exceptional chamber control during every step of the surgery. Using the system’s Proprietary Dynamic Infusion Compensation technology, chamber stability is almost automatic, highly responsive, and becomes something that the surgeon doesn’t really pay attention to anymore. The system monitors chamber pressure and automatically adjusts infusion pressure to keep the chamber stable.
Atune® Energy provides the surgeon with incredibly powerful but controlled cutting power that no other B&L vision system has offered. Atune® is delivered through a six crystal 28.5 kHz handpiece frequency, cutting through dense cataracts with ease. Atune® works hand-in-hand with the fluidics, creating a seamless cutting experience in a quiet, level-pressured chamber.
These two technologies allow the cataract surgeon to focus more on the surgery and less on the technology in use. Better focus creates better outcomes.

2) Retinal Procedures
B&L has been providing industry-leading technology in retinal procedures for years. The Stellaris Elite is no exception. With upgraded cutting technology, visualization, and the new VITESSE Hypersonic Vitrectomy System, the Elite gives retinal surgeons lots of upgrades.
The Elite system offers compatibility with 20g, 23g, or 25g vit cutters, including the ability to cut up to a 7500 cpm rate. With this wide range of options, the surgeon can customize each surgical step the way she/he wants.
Stellaris Elite combines xenon light sources (specifically designed for small-gauge vitrectomy), fiber optic add-ons as small as 29g, and numerous specialized illumination options. Surgeons have a wide range of combination options, allowing them to choose what works best for them and the situation.
VITESSE Hypersonic Vitrectomy System
Vitesse hypersonic creates a near liquifying effect in a controlled area around the cutter, which offers higher levels of precision cutting to the surgeon. Vitesse is not a pneumatic cutter, it’s 100% open 100% of the time. Vitreous liquifies at the end of the port and is then aspirated. Vitesse is the first of its kind in retinal surgery and is only available on the Stellaris Elite Vision System.
3) Software & Design
The Stellaris Elite is beautifully designed, compact, and intuitive. The touch screen user interface is easy to navigate, making adjusting settings simple, yet allowing highly complex manipulation of parameters at the same time. And even though it makes no difference in surgery, Stellaris Elite is pretty to look at! One point for aesthetics!
