The YC1800 is Nidek’s current model, and has some vast improvements from the previous models including a more robust laser cavity, faster firing rate, a more compact size and much more.
The “Smart Switch” located on the joystick provides high operability, allowing doctors to change parameters (Energy up, Energy down and Ready/Standby) while holding the joystick. Permits faster and easier operation, and eliminates need to look away from oculars to make parameter adjustments.
The YC-1800 offers 0.3 to 10 mJ, continuously adjustable in increments of 0.1 mJ, allowing the precise tissue effect.
The dual 635 nm aiming beam offers superior visual sensitivity, which in turn enhances the speed and ease of operation. The 635 nm beam is also safer to human eyes since it achieves the same crisp and sharp intensity of 650 nm or 670 nm beam with half the power output. The YC-1800 has the ability to rotate the dual aiming beams 360º permitting work anywhere in the periphery without clipping the iris.
The YC-1800 can adjust the offset between ±500 microns (25 micron steps) to meet the varied clinical needs. A different offset can be used for PMMA, silicone or acrylic lenses, and the offset can even be adjusted on the same IOL to compensate for a parallax effect in the periphery. This eliminates the need to manually defocus, permits a clear field of view, and reduces lens pitting.
