Brooks Eye Associates Now Offers Cataract Surgery Using Stellaris Elite System

The Stellaris Elite is the latest in ophthalmic surgical technology and provides Brooks Eye Associates eye surgeons with exceptional control and patient stability during cataract removal.

Plano, United States - September 29, 2020 /PressCable/ —

Plano, TX (September 29, 2020): The team at Brooks Eye Associates is now performing cataract surgery using the Stellaris Elite Vision Enhancement System. The Stellaris Elite is the latest in ophthalmic surgical technology and provides eye surgeons with exceptional control and patient stability during cataract removal.

The eye has a natural lens that focuses light and allows you to see images. However, with age, the natural lens can become clouded, resulting in a cataract in one or both eyes. While cataracts can cause blurry vision and other vision problems, they can be addressed with cataract surgery. During cataract surgery, the clouded lens is liquified and removed in a process called phacoemulsification.

Cataract surgery is one of the most common surgical procedures performed today, and with the experienced surgeons at Brooks Eye Associates, it is remarkably safe. Yet, the Stellaris Elite makes performing cataract surgery even safer by providing ophthalmologists with a more highly controlled surgical environment.

During phacoemulsification, the clouded lens is gently broken up into tiny fragments and is then removed with slight suction. The incision and vacuuming can create an imbalance in the eye’s fluid and intraocular pressure. The Stellaris Elite ensures that these elements remain in balance by continuously monitoring the eye and automatically adjusting pressure levels to increase an eye’s stability.

“Elements can change suddenly and unexpectedly during any surgery, but the Stellaris Elite gives us a greater degree of control and stability than ever before,” said Dain Brooks, M.D., Head Surgeon at Brooks Eye Associates. “Thanks to this cutting-edge technology, we can better control pressure levels within the eye and make sure they’re always exactly where they need to be.”

The Stellaris Elite system also provides Brooks Eye Associates with a more precise, highly efficient tool to break up the clouded cataract compared to the tools used in other cataract surgery systems.

Together, the greater efficiency of the tool used to break up cataracts as well as the increased eye stability provided by the Stellaris Elite provides a safer, more controlled, and quicker cataract surgery.

“Providing our patients with the safest procedure possible is our first priority,” Dr. Brooks said. “We’re proud to adopt this technology and continue improving the level of care we provide to our patients.”

Oturu scores 30 as Minnesota beats No. 19 Michigan 75-67

Oct 25, 2020

MINNEAPOLIS — Daniel Oturu shook off an injury and had a career game to help Minnesota take down another ranked opponent. Oturu scored a career-high 30 points and the Gophers went on a late 11-0 run to beat No. 19 Michigan 75-67 on Sunday. The sophomore center had 20 points in a dominant first half, and he continued his roll with six quick points after the break. But with 14:35 remaining, he hit the deck hard while fighting for a rebound. He stayed on the floor for nearly five minutes, clutching his left shoulder as a hush fell over the...

Bey scores 33, leads No. 16 Villanova past Georgetown 80-66

Oct 25, 2020

PHILADELPHIA — Saddiq Bey hit eight 3-pointers and scored a career-high 33 points to lead No. 16 Villanova to an 80-66 win over Georgetown on Saturday. Bey, a 6-foot-8 sophomore forward, hadn't been much of a 3-pointer shooter this season for the Wildcats (12-3, 3-1 Big East). He'd made only 21 and four of those came in a nonconference game against Ohio. He shot just 3-for-10 overall in a win this week at Creighton, hardly a sign he was about to bust out with a career game against the Hoyas (11-6, 1-3). Left open, and determined to shoot, Bey had...

Former UConn coach Jim Calhoun earns 900th career win

Oct 25, 2020

WEST HARTFORD, Conn. — Jim Calhoun’s 900th win looked like so many others during a Hall of Fame coaching career. He stomped. He screamed. He slammed objects. The only real difference is the sideline he now controls. The longtime Connecticut coach added another milestone Friday night when the University of Saint Joseph beat Pratt Institute 105-61. Now in his second season coaching in Division III, Calhoun joined Mike Krzyzewski, Jim Boeheim and Bob Knight — all former rivals and national champions at college basketball’s highest level — as the only coaches to coach at least 10 seasons in Division I...

Stewart leads way in Washington's 72-40 blowout of USC

Oct 25, 2020

SEATTLE — After a lackluster thud to begin Pac-12 Conference play, Washington rebounded with its biggest conference blowout in nearly a decade. Isaiah Stewart scored 18 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, Quade Green added 14 points and Washington rebounded from a loss to open conference play with a 72-40 romp over Southern California on Sunday night. Stewart was again dominant on the interior despite sitting the final 9 minutes of the first half with foul trouble. The freshman post was 6-of-12 shooting and had two of Washington’s 12 blocked shots. Fellow freshman Jaden McDaniels added 11 points despite an off...
