The best offering in metal I/A, we offer the Maestro Handpiece with Barrett I/A tips. Prior to small incision cataract surgery metal I/A devices took a “one size fits all incisions” approach. The Maestro with Barrett design incorporates a small lumen and larger distal end and a variety of silicone sleeves for any incision size. The Maestro with Barrett I/A provides you the following benefits:
- Increased irrigation flow at a given bottle height relative to first generation I/A.
- Increased cortical removal efficiency. The silicone sleeves provided with the Maestro with Barrett mate with its distal end, which results in irrigation flowing solely out of the irrigation ports, and not out of the end. This is intended to stop competing irrigation/aspiration forces at the tip.
- Reduction of oar locking in small incisions and access to more clock hours relative to traditional I/A tips.
The Barrett I/A tips are best paired with the superior irrigation flow of the Maestro handpiece but, are also compatible with Alcon, AMO, and Bausch & Lomb handpieces as well.
