Carl Zeiss Meditec unveils a series of eye treatment innovations

Carl Zeiss Meditec : 07 April, 2008  (New Product)
Carl Zeiss Meditec has introduced two new platforms, each designed to be scalable and expandable for long-term operation.
The new Visulas Trion multi-colour laser offers the most advanced photocoagulation system to date with superior power, reliable performance and stability at yellow, red and green wavelengths. The laser features intuitive touch navigation and integrates with the Zeiss Laser Slit Lamp.

The new Visante OCT Software offers complete anterior and posterior corneal topography with high-resolution OCT and the renowned ATLAS Placido disk technology. The combination will allow clinicians to measure the thickness of the cornea and more precisely view pathologies, anatomical and structural issues, and the curvature and back of the cornea.

Additionally, Carl Zeiss Meditec continues its tradition of developing advanced applications for existing platforms to improve their functionality and scalability, including:

* New Guided Progression Analysis (GPA) software, which accurately predicts a patient’s stage of disease, rate of progression and risk of future vision loss by measuring statistically significant change. GPA is available with the Humphrey Field Analyzer (HFA II-i), Stratus OCT and GDx Review software.

* Stratus OCT is the most trusted and widely used device for retinal scanning. With the introduction of Advanced Serial Analysis software, clinicians are given new applications to facilitate the interpretation of glaucoma and retinal analysis.

Carl Zeiss Meditec is also making significant strides in the integration of surgical tools and diagnostics to improve the overall experience for clinicians and patients alike. An Integrated OR suite will offer a first look at the seamless integration of these new technologies:

* The OPMI Lumera and OPMI Lumera T are the latest surgical microscopes from Carl Zeiss. With breakthroughs in illumination technology that increases stability, contrast and brilliance of the red reflex, the Lumera microscopes enable clinicians to see the eye in unprecedented detail.

* The Zeiss Optic (ZO) Aspheric IOLs enable reduction and control of the spherical aberrations of the eye while showing low sensitivity to decentration and tilt. These lenses achieve the maximum visual quality for the largest range of patients.

* New axial length algorithms and improved keratotometry are now available on the IOLMaster non-contact biometer. Enhanced evaluation capabilities help increase the number of measurable patients, enhance workflow and increase practice efficiency.

* Callisto eye is an integrated workflow system for ophthalmic surgery. The system includes software for patient administration, video recording and a touch screen PC for accessibility and control of all functions in the operating room.

“Technology in the medical domain is only truly innovative if it delivers measurable clinical benefits and lifestyle improvements for patients,” said Jim Taylor, Carl Zeiss Meditec president and chief executive officer. “In addition to bringing new products to market, we are committed to building scalable platforms, developing advanced software and investing in research that enables physicians to provide better diagnosis and treatment options to their patients. When these efforts translate to improved visual outcomes and quality of life enhancements, we know that we have created technology that is making a difference.”
