Alcon to host ‘cinematic experience’ of NGENUITY system

Alcon’s latest advances in visualisation technology and initiatives to support clinical studies will be presented at the 2018 RANZCO Scientific Congress.

The ophthalmic device company will showcase products in four programs during the conference in Adelaide, as well as a 3D immersive experience of procedures filmed with its NGENUITY system.

Alcon also has an extensive program of events outlined below:

Sunday 18th November, Room RB5

Alcon is presenting at AONA National on its current consumable offerings, highlighting its focus on optimising ophthalmic nurses’ experience in the operating environment through uniquely customised procedure pack offerings.

There will also be updates on latest products Clareon AutonoMe and Alcon’s 3D Visualisation System, NGENUITY.

Monday 19th November, Riverbank Room 5

A Lunch Session will be hosted to provide information on Alcon’s Investigator Initiated Trial (IIT) process. An IIT may be a clinical or non-clinical study, for which the independent sponsor – an individual or institution – can request Alcon to provide either funding, product or both.

Every year Alcon supports new IITs that address unmet medical needs, provides real world evidence and focuses on quality of life.

This session would suit people who are passionate about research, product development and evaluation, and wish to contribute to the evidence-base through conference presentations and publications. It will be conducted 12.30–1.30.

Monday 19th November, The Playford Hotel

A symposium titled Back to the Future, A Night on the Red Carpet will feature 3D visualisation with cases filmed exclusively with Alcon’s 3D Visualisation System, NGENUITY. The evening will offer a unique cinematic experience and an in-depth panel discussion on the utility of advanced visualisation technologies in different types of ophthalmic surgeries.

The symposium will be moderated by Dr Nathan Kerr and will include key speakers Professor Stephanie Watson, Professor John Grigg, Associate Professor Jagjit Singh Gilhotra and Associate Professor Paul McCartney.

They will discuss their own experiences using advanced visualisation technologies in ophthalmic surgery. The speakers will also revisit the past and current practices and patient outcomes.

AFT Pharmaceuticals

Over a series of videos captured on NGenuity, the panel will discuss surgical requirements for optimal visualisation in varying procedures including cataract, vitreoretinal, corneal and glaucoma procedures, as well as in surgical management of complex cases. The session will conclude with a discussion around the evolution and utility of advanced visualisation technologies in surgical education, by revisiting past and current practices and a debate as to whether a real DeLorean time machine exists.

The evening event will be held at The Playford Hotel, 120 North Terrace from 6.30pm until 9.30pm.

Tuesday 20th November, Hall K

Finally, the company is presenting at Orthoptics Australia Conference on Understanding the Total Impact of Corneal Power on Lens Calculations and will have a trade display showcasing the latest IOL offering from 18th – 21st November at the annual Orthoptist Australia conference.
