SUPPLEMENT TO EYEWORLD JUNE 2022 | 7 Supported by Alcon suite, intraoperative technology, and postop analysis to the electronic medical record sets the Alcon Vision Suite apart, from Dr. Woodard's perspective. "Full communication with all of these devices and connecting the OR to the clinic is what SMART Solutions helps to do. Right now these devices will com- municate with each other, but they won't communicate with the electronic medical record of the patient. SMART Solutions allows for the integration of these devices into the electronic medical record," Dr. Woodard said. With Alcon's focus on connectivity and integration, Dr. Woodard said there is full integration from preop to intraop to postop. It starts with the ARGOS ® Biometer as the surgical hub where measurements are obtained, and a plan is initiated with Dr. Woodard's surgeon preferences incorporated. From there, the plan is sent automatically to the device that is going to be utilized during the sur- gery. Postoperatively, data from each case is saved to the cloud for further analysis and optimization. "I can't stress enough how important these technologies are to help seamlessly move through the surgical process based on the doctor's preferences. The surgical planning tools allow the technicians to save those preferences and expedite the process," Dr. Woodard said. See the equipment product manuals for Important Product Information. Editors' note: Dr. Woodard is the medical director at Omni Eye Services in Atlanta, Georgia. He can be contacted at LWoodard@OmniEyeAtlanta.com. Why the ARGOS® Biometer? Dr. Woodard chose to get a new biometer when swept-source OCT technology became available. "The benefit of having a swept-source OCT device is that we can still obtain an accurate axial length measurement on most patients, even if they have a dense or mature cataract," he said. The ARGOS® Biometer, which Dr. Woodard noted outperformed other swept-source OCT biometers in obtaining accurate axial lengths in mature cataracts, was the best option for his practice due to its ability to integrate with other components in the Alcon Vision Suite. Refer to page 8 for Important Product Information about the Alcon products described in this supplement. "without all of the usual time-absorbing sidetracks, such as getting the paper reports in order and collecting the various measurements of astigmatism for analysis and manually entering data into online nomograms, which introduces the possi- bility of transcription errors. "Surgeons benefit by spending less time [thinking about] … the accuracy of the lens selection, and patients benefit by having a more confident surgeon with less risk of receiving the wrong power implant," he said. Postop data is automatically avail- able for surgeon review after cases, with personalized tracking, reporting, and optimization features. Dr. Davidson said outcomes analysis has been a driver in improvement of his practice's results, using AnalyzOR™ for the past 9 years. AnalyzOR™ is incorporated now into the SMARTCataract platform. "I expect SMARTCataract [will] disrupt the industry," Dr. Davidson said. "Once surgeons experience the efficien- cies of the automated, transcription-free SMARTCataract planning application, they will refuse to regress to the old way of doing things."
