FREMONT, CA: Lumenis, the world's largest energy-based medical device company for aesthetic, surgical as well as ophthalmic applications, has announced the launch of the revolutionary new Digital Duet, the first digital SLT-YAG system on the market. The Digital Duet takes gold-standard laser glaucoma treatment as well as posterior capsulotomy to the next level with the introduction of cutting-edge digital and connectivity capabilities, completely redefining the platform as a comprehensive solution for treatment, digital imaging, and practice efficiency.

The new Digital Duet facilitates workflow in the ophthalmology practice. Doctors can seamlessly generate reports as well as save data, images, and video to the practice network and also the electronic medical record, with no requirement for additional documentation or laser logs. The system simplifies quick, transparent communication with referring doctors, enabling practices to easily share reports and treatment documentation with the patient's primary doctor. Utilizing the Digital Duet, physicians can capture digital video and images before, during, and after treatment to improve documentation and diagnosis. Digital imaging also improves education, whether a physician is showing pathology to patients or utilizing the system's live viewing capabilities to have multiple students watch procedures in real-time.

"The Digital Duet's digital imaging capabilities are allowing me to document pathologies. Also, I can now share images with my patients to help them understand their conditions and feel comfortable with therapy," stated Dr. Nathan M. Radcliffe of the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary, New York City. "It's exciting to get these totally new capabilities in a system with the enhanced energy control, visualization and precision I need to achieve the outcomes I want for patients with glaucoma."

"As the creator and leader in SLT-YAG systems, Lumenis is excited to continue our drive for innovation with the introduction of the next-generation Digital Duet," stated Lumenis CEO Tzipi Ozer-Armon. "With the Digital Duet, our company has reimagined laser therapy as a comprehensive platform with seamless digital imaging, state-of-the-art procedures, and streamlined communication. It's a perfect reflection of our commitment to improve patients' health through cutting-edge solutions."
