1. Insight Instruments INTRECTOR® Portable Vitrectomy System

    The INTRECTOR® Portable Vitrectomy System injects a drug while simultaneously performing a vitrectomy through a single opening in the eye. This eliminates the need for vitrectomies to be performed in an operating room and shifts the point of care to an office environment.
