All the YAG procedures — and SLT too

Tango Reflex™ enables you to perform the full range of anterior and posterior YAG laser procedures, including Posterior Membranectomy, as well as SLT Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty for glaucoma.  

Tango Reflex’s treatment options comprise

  • SLT Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty, 
  • Posterior Membranectomy,
  • Capsulotomy
  • Iridotomy

Switch modes, adjust parameters

Tango Reflex™ allows you to switch between treatment modes at the touch of a button, and its intuitive touchscreen means you can adjust treatment parameters quickly and easily.

Floaters… best ever visualization

Featuring Ellex’s proprietary Reflex Technology™, visualization accuracy and illumination in YAG mode for both on-axis and off-axis has never been better – offering a host of benefits for the safe and effective treatment of floaters. It also enables you to perform HD High Definition capsulotomy.

SLT… precision — and beyond 

Tango Reflex™ 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. With an enhanced view of the trabecular meshwork, you'll be able to perform SLT procedures faster and more accurately. 

YAG… low energy, high efficiency

Tango Reflex’s YAG mode features an Ultra Gaussian spot profile and fast rise time. That means you can perform capsulotomies and iridotomies at lower, more efficient energy levels. With less energy delivered into the eye, you’ll be able to carry out capsulotomies with all types of IOLs and with significantly less risk of lens pitting.

Prevent post-capsulotomy floaters

The benefits of Ellex’s proprietary Reflex™ Technology extend beyond the safe treatment of floaters. Employing TCI™ to identify capsular fragments, which can give rise to subsequent floaters, Tango Reflex™ can be used to vaporize broken pieces of the fragment and help to prevent the common patient complaint of sudden floater development after capsulotomy.

For Laser Floater Treatment, the Reflex illumination mirror ensures that the laser beam is never obstructed - minimizing the risk of under-dosing or over-dosing the energy and ensuring the desired therapeutic effect.



TCI™ True Coaxial Illuminiation

Dr. Paul Singh (USA) demonstrates the benefits of True Coaxial Illumination, TCI™ enables him to visualize a weiss ring floater and to deliver the energy needed to break down the floater safely.


Titratable Illumination with Reflex technology™

Dr. Paul Singh (USA) demonstrates the use of titratable illumination to view floaters that are within the posterior capsule clearly – whilst also viewing the retina.


Posterior Membranectomy with On- and Off-Axis Visualization

Reflex Technology™ incorporates a proprietary slit lamp illumination tower design, which converges the operator’s vision, the target illumination, and the treatment beam along the same optical path and onto the same optical plane. The illumination tower can be used coaxially to enhance the view of the target opacity and more effectively vaporize it.

SLT and the Refractive Surgeon

The glaucoma medications used to control the IOP of refractive patients often add to the blurred vision experienced by these patients on a daily basis. This leaves the refractive surgeon with the frustrating task of correcting refractive error without being able to eliminate a key contributor to the problem.


SLT and Heavily Pigmented Trabeculum

It is important to note that less energy is required when performing SLT on patients with a heavily pigmented trabeculum. In this case video, extensive mini-bubble formation is noted at the commencement of SLT treatment, indicating that the energy level is too high.


SLT and Irregular Pigmentation

When performing SLT on eyes with irregular pigmentation, always ensure that focus is maintained on the target tissue, and not on the laser beam spot.


SLT Treatment Protocol

SLT works by stimulating a natural healing response in the body to manage the elevated IOP associated with glaucoma, promoting cellular regeneration without the burn and scar tissue associated with other laser procedures.
