Northern Health Foundation has two major funding projects for medical equipment at Northern Hospital Epping.

Both will broaden our service delivery for patients experiencing cataracts, allowing our health service to be more accessible to our local members as the community ages and grows. 

These important projects are outlined below:

Phacoemulsification Machine – $186,000

The latest Phacoemulsification Machine will provide smart Phacoemulsification technology that optimises every second of cataract surgery. This new system automatically and continuously adapts to the changing conditions in the eye, providing an IOP (intraocular pressure) that is more constant, providing greater stability of the anterior chamber at each stage of the operation.

Ophthalmic Microscope  –  $224,000

The Ophthalmic Microscope range provides better visualisation throughout the procedure, as well as greater ease of use during placement and programming of the microscope before and during cataract surgery. The optical head has been designed to overcome the numerous light limitations of other surgical microscopes, which can affect visualisation, enabling the surgeon to ha more light at all times.
