 Medical device manufacturer Carl Zeiss Meditec has unveiled new devices showcasing its latest breakthroughs in ophthalmic visualisation and imaging technologies. The announcement coincides with a major milestone for its SMILE laser surgery procedure.

The Artevo 800, as well as the Clarus 700 – a high-resolution, ultra-widefield imaging device with angiography – were both launched at the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery’s annual meeting in San Diego this week.

The Zeiss Artevo 800 is said to be the first digital microscope in ophthalmic surgery, and includes a new ‘DigitalOptics‘ feature, which provides “unmatched” depth of field, reduced light intensity requirements and real colour impression.

According to the company, the platform provides digital assistance and detailed information to surgical vision in real-time. It also features cloud connectivity to the Zeiss Cataract Suite, allowing surgeons to access patient data remotely.

“Developed with surgeons for surgeons, the Artevo 800 is going to change the future of surgical care by revolutionising visualisation, information, comfort and workflow in the operating room,” Zeiss global president of ophthalmic devices Mr Jim Mazzo said.

The Clarus 700 is said to be the first device that combines ultra-widefield imaging, enhanced image quality, and a full range of fundus imaging modalities, including fundus angiography.

The new features allow retina specialists to visualise changes with high-resolution details from the posterior pole to the periphery. Mazzo added that specialists can manage all fundus imaging modalities in one session from one device without the need to reposition the patient, ensuring a comfortable exam experience.

Finally, Zeiss announced its minimally invasive laser correction procedure, SMILE – which uses the VisuMax femtosecond laser – has been performed more than two million times in patients.

More than 1000 VisuMax devices have been distributed, with SMILE being adopted by more than 1800 surgeons in more than 70 countries.
