Widen your treatment horizons

Ultra Q Reflex™ is the platform that enables you to perform the full range of anterior and posterior YAG laser procedures, including posterior membranectomy, capsulotomy and iridotomy procedures to the highest standards of safety, accuracy and efficacy.

With Ultra Q Reflex™ your treatment options comprise

  • Posterior Membranectomy
  • Capsulotomy
  • Iridotomy

Converge and focus – Reflex™ Technology

The development of Ellex’s Reflex™ Technology platform, which includes TCI™ for on- and off-axis visualization, a precise aiming beam, and a superior energy beam profile — all within a unique slit lamp illumination tower design that converges and focuses your sight line, target illumination and treatment beam into one optical path.

On Axis Mode
  • Provides enhanced visualization of the middle and posterior vitreous
  • Allows for spatial context – especially near the retina
  • Red reflex helps with contrast for certain floaters
  • Ability to view anterior floaters
Off Axis Mode
  • Beneficial for visualizing anterior floaters
  • Minimizes red reflex which allows for floaters to appear “white”
  • Helps with defining posterior capsule
  • Decreases glare in some situations

Full visualization from the cornea to the retina 

True Coaxial Illumination — TCI™ — is at the heart of Ultra Q Reflex™. It’s technology that provides a full view from the cornea to the retina and much-needed spatial context. The ability to titrate the TCI™ system in both on-axis and off-axis visualization permits a multitude of potential illumination settings to treat floaters in any part of the eye while maintaining the spatial context necessary to maximize safe firing.

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, Ultra Q 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.

IOL-friendly photodisruption

Featuring an Ultra Gaussian beam profile, Ultra Q Reflex™ focuses more energy into the center of the beam profile to deliver greater energy density — reducing the energy needed to effectively perform capsulotomy and iridotomy and greatly reducing the risk of lens pitting.

“TCI is the heart and soul of this laser. It is what makes this system different and enables us to perform laser floater treatment with confidence.”
Hotspots Ultra Q Reflex 1
An optimized optical system, which includes True Coaxial Illumination – TCI™ – ensures superior visualization in both the anterior and posterior segments.
Hotspots Ultra Q Reflex 2
For Posterior Membranectomy, the Reflex illumination mirror ensures that the laser beam is never obstructed – minimizing the risk of under- or over-dosing the energy, ensuring that the desired therapeutic effect is achieved.



Reflex Technology™ for Anterior and Posterior

Read a whitepaper about the transformative role of Reflex technology™ for anterior and posterior YAG treatments.


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.
