Ellex Solo™ SLT Laser

Solo™ incorporates Ellex’s proprietary SLT technology — providing superior energy control, a sharp edged aiming beam and the industry’s fastest firing rate of three shots per second.

An advanced SLT laser, the Ellex Solo™ allows you to peform quick and highly accurate glaucoma laser treatment customized to each individual patient's response.

Engineered and built by Ellex, the New Generation Solo™ features custom-designed optics to ensure an enhanced view of the trabecular meshwork, enabling you to perform SLT procedures faster and more accurately.

With the industry’s fastest firing rate at 3 shots per second, Solo™ saves you time and allows you to perform quick and highly accurate treatments. Other SLT lasers simply can’t keep up, averaging 2.5 hertz in SLT mode. 

The New Generation Solo™ is a highly effective tool for first-line glaucoma treatments. It also pairs seamlessly with MIGS procedures – either prior to, or following, MIGS. Furthermore, SLT can be used as adjunct therapy with drugs, and as alternative therapy when drugs fail.

Solo's Features

Optimized for Anterior Segment Viewing

Optimized optics for anterior segment viewing. Featuring Galilean converging optics with a 16° stereoscopic angle, Solo™ provides a more natural stereoscopic view combined with a shallow depth of field for precision focusing.

Precise SLT Treatment

Solo’s system electronics, energy attenuator and energy monitor are configured to deliver optimal positional resolution. In addition, an automatic calibration process, combined with start-up and test-fire sequences, uses feedback from the energy monitor in order to constantly adjust the system to ensure more reliable, stable output. The end result: parameter settings can be adjusted in 0.1 mJ increments to ensure precise treatment results. This capability, coupled with superior energy control, enables you to deliver highly accurate SLT treatment. All SLT treatment parameters are designed to industry-recognized treatment protocols, maximizing treatment options and ensuring effective patient results.

Accurately Position Optical Breakdown

In order to deliver precise treatment and avoid the risk of side effects like IOL pitting, Solo’s continuously variable posterior offset control adjustment (from 100 to 500 microns) allows the most precise adjustment of the plasma ball’s position. Since the plasma ball creates shock waves that move back in the direction of the laser source (that is, towards the operator), the ideal placement of the plasma ball is slightly “posterior offset” from the target tissue to be incised.

Designed to Maximize Your Workflow

Ellex has integrated the laser and slit lamp for greater efficiency and reliability, as well as for improved ease of use. Solo’s compact, efficient design provides you with additional working space – making it easier to align the patient and to position the contact lens. It also offers the added benefit of convenient, simultaneous access to the patient and laser controls. It also minimizes system downtime because there are no exposed fiber-optic or electrical cables to accidentally damage and thereby eliminates the need for you to calibrate the system, or to reposition cables or adapters – simply aim, shoot and fire.

A Wider View

Large diameter oculars (eyepieces) provide a wider field of view of the target area.
