Stellaris Elite™ Anterior Vision Enhancement System


The Stellaris Elite™ system is redesigned with advance features that automatically react to crucial procedural factors as thy change, letting you to focus on the surgery – not the system.

With an unrivaled combination of leading-edge technologies, the new Stellaris Elite is optimized to deliver precise control and high efficiency to a wide range of cataract procedures.

The newly designed Stellaris Elite with Adaptive Fluidics™ integrates precision control with Dynamic Infusion Compensation to deliver a highly responsive and controlled surgical environment.1,2*

Stable Chamber Fluidics is designed to optimize chamber stability with these 4 components1

  1. Advanced hardware designed to improve your control
  2. Customizable software settings increases performance
  3. Responsive fluidics and Digiflow™ Pressurized Infusion Shown to improve Chamber stabilty
  4. VFM StableChamber® Tubing designed to control and stabilize flow in MICS High Vacuum procedures


  • Improved chamber stability with Digiflow
  • Better control of infusion flow – minimizing IOP fluctuations
  • Easy learning curve and use

Achieve better results without changing your approach

Attune energy management works Synergistically with the chamber stability and vacuum efficiency of Adaptive Fluidics™

  • Highly efficient controlled emulsification with a six crystal 28.5 kHz handpiece frequency2*
  • Innovative design balances mechanical cutting with acoustic cavitation1
  • Full 150 micron stroke length and longitudinal cutting action result in highly effective emulsification3*

It also comes with Advanced Vitrectomy technology with 2500 CPM guillotine cutter.

Wireless, Dual Linear technology combined with precise control of fluidics and ultrasound expands your options and improves followability

  • Integrated—yet independent— control of phaco energy and aspiration
  • Designed to provide greater precision when addressing a compromised corneal endothelium, weak zoonules, small pupils or shallow chambers
  • Four unique function buttons offer a wide range of mode switching and surgical programming options

Versatile integrated platform designed to increase and expand OR efficiency - Enabling rapid turnaround times, ease of use and expanded range of techniques

Stellaris Elite™ provides a host of ergonomic and surgeon-led innovations designed to maximize your time in the OR while increasing productivity using one family of Stellaris Systems. Stellaris Elite™, designed for the efficient cataract operating room and Stellaris PC designed for the Efficient Cataract and Vitreoretinal surgical practice are compatible on multiple fronts. Whether it is sharing system settings across machines, phaco handpieces, Capsule-Guard® I/A and cataract tubing packs, Stellaris makes it easy to offer multi-specialty services with minimal specialization.

OR-Optimized for you and your staff

  • Small OR footprint
  • Wireless foot pedal
  • Easy to set-up, priming and tuning of tubing and handpieces
  • Preassembled, ready-to-use cassette/tubing
  • Designed to decrease turnaround time
  • Wide range of accessories, handpieces and Storz® Ophthalmic Instruments

Adaptive Fluidics™

Blends precision aspiration control with predictive infusion management to create a responsive and controlled surgical environment for lens removal efficiency

Attune® Energy utilizes highly efficient, longitudinal cutting to complement Adaptive Fluidics, resulting in low energy.

After the surgeon sets a preferred infusion pressure, Adaptive Fluidics works systematically by:

  • Monitoring - Adaptive Fluidics continuously tracks vacuum flow rate at every moment of surgery
  • Compensating - The system automatically adjusts infusion pressure, for excellent stability

Stellaris Cataract Updates

  • DigiFlow™ Infusion Control
  • Adaptive Fluidics™
  • Attune® Energy Management
  • Common Surgeon Files transportable from Stellaris Elite™ to Stellaris® PC
  • Enhanced On-Screen User Controls and drop-down menus
  • Enhanced Messaging features for clarity and ease of use
  • New Software enhancements to the Graphical User Interface
  • Advanced Vitrectomy with 2500 CPM guillotine cutter

Indications: The Bausch + Lomb Stellaris Elite™ vision enhancement system is intended for the emulsification and removal of cataracts, anterior and posterior segment vitrectomy. The system is designed for use in both anterior and posterior segment surgeries. It provides capabilities for phacoemulsification, coaxial and bimanual irrigation/aspiration, bipolar coagulation, vitrectomy, viscous fluid injection/removal and air/fluid exchange operations. The Stellaris Elite vision enhancement system configured with the laser module is additionally intended for retinal photocoagulation and laser trabeculoplasty.

CONTRAINDICATIONS: All Systems: Use of accessories not designated by Bausch + Lomb for use with this equipment may result in serious permanent patient injury, adverse surgical outcome, or damage to the equipment. Systems with Laser Module: Photocoagulation is not indicated for patients without pigmentation (albino eyes). In addition, Laser Indirect Ophthalmoscope (LIO) is not indicated for cases involving laser photocoagulation within the arcades.

WARNINGS: All Systems: Implantable defibrillators present a risk of injury if triggered by a fibrillatory event during intraocular surgery. Electromagnetic interaction between the phacoemulsification (phaco) handpiece and an implanted cardiac pacemaker is unlikely but cannot be ruled out. Systems with Laser Module: All support personnel who are present during laser treatment must wear appropriate laser protective eyewear. DO NOT look directly into the aiming or treatment laser beam. Use of unapproved delivery devices may cause inaccurate laser delivery which could result in serious permanent patient injury. When using the Vitesse™ handpiece: Use only the Entry Site Alignment (ESA) devices provided with the Vitesse handpiece pack (yellow trocar caps). Do not use any ESA with metal components to avoid particulate in the eye. This is not all you need to know. Systems with Laser Module: Misuse of the laser system may lead to dangerous situations and severe injuries. All Systems: See the appropriate Operator Manual for detailed directions, proper use, and full risk and safety information.
