Riverina Day Surgery Installs New Technology to Improve Cataract Surgery

Riverina Day Surgery is excited to announce the upgrade of their Phaco machine to the Veritas Phaco Machine, to optimise the process of removing cataracts for both patients and surgeons.

Phacoemulsification is a cataract surgery technique that involves emulsifying and removing the eye’s internal lens.

Riverina Day Surgery CEO/Director of Nursing Megan King said the phaco machine makes this process safer and more efficient.

“The Veritas Phaco Machine has state-of-the-art technology with upgraded hardware that is more responsive, allowing for a smoother procedure,” she said.

“Safety is also enhanced with an advanced tubing system, allowing ease of control while surgeons perform this delicate procedure.”

Riverina Day Surgery was the first place to trial the technology in New South Wales.

“During our two week trial I received excellent feedback from all staff, especially the ophthalmologists, which is why we have gone ahead with the technology,” Ms King said.

“It is really important to us at Riverina Day Surgery that we keep abreast with the latest technology so we can ensure we provide the best possible outcomes for our patients.

“This type of surgery can be life-changing for those undergoing it, so it is very important to us that they feel confident in our processes and supported throughout .”

Riverina Day Surgery provides a wide range of specialist surgical services including ENT, gastroenterology, general surgery, gynaecology, IVF, oculoplastic, ophthalmic, oral & maxillofacial, orthopaedic, plastic & reconstructive, paediatric and urology. It is also the only day surgery to offer IVF procedures in the Riverina/Wagga Wagga area.
