Dr. Christopher J. Pole on ArcDUO: Advancing CRIs for the Modern Practice at ASCRS 2024

Corneal relaxing incisions (CRI) are an essential tool in treating low-level astigmatism. Yet they’re not performed as frequently due to barriers such as limited access to training, variability in patient populations and challenges in accuracy and reproducibility.

At the 2024 Annual Meeting of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS 2024), Dr. Christopher J. Pole (USA) introduced ArcDUO by MST and shared how this innovative instrument has changed the CRI game with its FLACS-quality incisions—all without the need for lasers and at a fraction of the cost and time. With ArcDUO’s consistent results, he can now confidently perform CRI post-cataract surgery on patients with monofocal IOL. For more on ArcDUO, head on over to
