Discover Innovation at Its Core

Directional™ II Laser Probe

For over a decade, Synergetics® has provided the retinal community with a unique laser probe capable of providing treatment from the posterior pole to the extreme periphery. This next generation probe, Directional™ II continues the evolution of our signature laser probe.

  • Ergonomic handle profile of the Pinnacle 360°™ with color-coded gauge identification.
  • Increased degree of fiber curvature provides greater peripheral access.
  • Enhanced fiber adjustment via new finger wheel design.
  • Stainless steel shaft and 2.5mm bushing provide necessary rigidity for steering the eye.

Illuminated Directional™ II Laser Probe

Our brightest illuminated laser probe ever now comes with the directional capabilities you have grown to prefer with our Directional™ Laser Probe. Perform your own scleral depression while reaching the extreme periphery with the Illuminated Directional™ II.

  • Ergonomic handle profile of the Pinnacle 360°™ with color-coded gauge identification
  • Enhanced fiber adjustment via new finger wheel design
  • Midfield illumination pattern
  • Standard multiport design allows for connection to the PHOTON™ and competitive equipment via illumination adapters
  • Stainless steel shaft and 2.5mm bushing provide necessary rigidity for steering the eye

Flexible Tapered Illuminated Laser Probe

Flexible Tapered Illuminated Laser Probes deliver an alternative option to the Directional™ style laser probe, at a lower cost, while still providing all of the benefits of combined illumination and laser.

  • Flexible tip aids with insertion into and extraction from instrument cannulas
  • Stainless steel shaft and 2.5mm bushing provide necessary rigidity for steering the eye
  • Midfield illumination pattern
  • Standard multiport design allows for connection to the PHOTON™ and competitive equipment via illumination adapters

Pediatric Instrumentation

Pediatric vitreoretinal disorders provide unique challenges for the retina specialist. To address these challenges, surgeons are currently asked to use instrumentation designed for adult eyes. Unfortunately, this one size fits all approach is not always efficient in achieving the best possible outcome. Synergetics partnered with Drs. Antonio Capone, Jr., Kimberly Drenser, and Michael Trese of Detroit, Michigan to help fill this void in the market.  Numerous design variables were considered, including: gauge size, illumination, irrigation, intra-ocular access, and dissection. The versatility of 23ga was selected as it provides access to small dissection spaces in the far periphery while also allowing for robust instrumentation that is needed for the dense proliferative tissue associated with many pediatric diseases.    

Multifunctional illumination, novel forceps, and port entry systems for two and three port approaches are now available:

  • 23ga Stealth Port Entry System, 3mm | 58.23-3MM | 23ga
  • 20/23ga Infusing Instrument Cannula System | 58.2023-3MM | 20ga
  • Vertical Forceps | 11.41.23 | 23ga
  • Microserrated Snub Nosed Forceps | 39.18.23PIN | 23ga
  • Illuminated Capone/Rizzo Pick | 56.45.23P | 23ga
  • Illuminated Membrane Rake | 56.46.23P | 23ga
  • Irrigating Trese Spatula | D28.30.23 | 23ga
  • Irrigating Trese Spatula | 28.30.23 | 23ga

Retractable Tano DDMS™

The Tano DDMS™ (Diamond Dusted Membrane Scraper) offers an atraumatic way to find the edge of a membrane. Now to help in preserving the integrity of the delicate DDMS™ tip when using valved cannulas, Synergetics offers the Retractable Tano DDMS™. The retraction is easily activated by moving a small button on the handle forward slightly (3.2mm); and then the tip is re-exposed by simply releasing the button once the tip has passed through the cannula. The tip is protected by retracting it into the shaft during cannula insertion.

  • Safe and easy insertion into valved cannulas
  • Easy activation
  • Atraumatic introduction of the membrane edge

Valved Port Entry Systems

Synergetics® has introduced the 23ga and 25ga Valved Stealth and Valved One-Step™ Port Entry Systems. These systems contain the same innovative blade designs found in the non-valved systems, but with a unique cannula valve cap. The design is concaved and provides increased sealing capability and smooth instrument transfer. This valve cap is made of preformed, cast silicone and is easy for the surgeon to remove.

  • Concave cap design for increased sealing capability and easy instrument transfer
  • Simple Venting during fluid/air exchanges
  • Multiple innovative blade designs that produce proven results
  • Easy cap removal

Silicone Oil Collection Chamber

Developed in cooperation with Dr. Carl Awh (Nashville, TN), the Synergetics® Silicone Oil Collection Chamber gives the surgeon an elegant yet simple way to cost effectively remove viscous fluid from the eye. The 7ml collection chamber has a silicone tip that fits easily over most cannula systems on the market. This allows the end user to pull the viscous fluids such as silicone oil through the cannula instead of making a separate, larger sclerotomy.

Once the silicone oil is removed, the collection chamber can be easily removed, capped off and disposed of avoiding the common mess of removing silicone oil. The Silicone Oil Collection Chamber can be attached to the extrusion line on most major vitrectomy systems.

Visco Dissector

Developed in cooperation with Dr. G. Baker Hubbard III (Atlanta, GA) the 25ga Hubbard Visco Dissector instrument gives surgeons another option in microincisional vitrectomy for complex membrane dissections.

  • The extendable probe allows surgeon to use Viscoelastic to gently elevate large diabetic membranes off the surface of the retina
  • A slide button easily retracts to actuate the tip and remains in place once actuated
  • Contains 6” DEHP-free PVC extension tubing to connect the Visco Dissector to a Viscoelastic filled syringe
  • Reduces amount of Viscoelastic lost during the transfer from the syringe to the Visco Dissector
  • Easy connection to a Viscous Fluid Injector system allows for controlled delivery of Viscoelastic
