ZEISS Meditec offers a comprehensive portfolio of products and services that enable eye care professionals to meet the demands of an increasingly challenging healthcare environment.
Some of the latest products are presented on the following page.
The Humphrey® projection perimeter (HFA™) is the recognized standard for glaucoma diagnostics and glaucoma management. The new-generation HFA3™ is upholding the tradition as the gold standard in visual field testing. It is designed to optimize clinical workflows, while also retaining proven standards for test strategies and progression analyses. The HFA3 is the first perimeter to use the patented Liquid Trial Lens™ instead of conventional corrective lenses.
The best-possible refractive correction is automatically set based on the patient data entered into the device for refraction and presbyopia. The automatic setting of the spherical refraction saves time and prevents confusion of the corrective lenses. Additional advantages for a more efficient workflow are offered by the SmartTouch™ user interface, for example, or the RelEYE™ for more reliable test results.
The AngioPlex™ OCT Angiography technology helps doctors to display retinal blood vessels without the need for the injection of fluorescent liquids into the patient's eye. Vascular changes in the retina and choroid can now be examined non-invasively and displayed in three dimensions using optical coherence tomography. OCT technology enables physicians to make better clinical decisions. For patients, it eliminates the risks associated with a procedure using fluorescent dyes.
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a now a standard procedure used to diagnose many eye diseases. The PRIMUS 200 OCT device, which has already been introduced to the Indian and Chinese market and has now also been approved for sale in Europe, is a compact, versatile and user-friendly OCT system that provides the main applications for diagnosis of the anterior and posterior segment of the eye.
The features of the PRIMUS 200 and a short familiarization time mean that the system can be easily integrated into even smaller eye care practices, and that practice services can be extended to a wider group of patients.
Other advantages of the new spectral domain OCT system include the availability of excellent image quality, the application of proven algorithms and an integrated pathology library, all of which help the ophthalmologist to make reliable and informed clinical decisions.
The ophthalmology software designed to improve workflow efficiency assists specialist medical practices with the management of macular diseases, by providing easy access to important clinical data. This software compiles data from various devices to assist physicians with their decision making.
The data are taken from the Eye Care Data Management System FORUM® and can combine information from the CIRRUS™ HD-OCT, CIRRUS photo, and vendor-neutral fundus imaging devices.
In addition to giving a clear overview, up to three data sets can be viewed at the same time, and it is possible to directly compare several stages of therapy. This means that diseases of the retina can be monitored more efficiently, which is beneficial when monitoring the progression of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), for example.
In basic diagnostics the Company is now offering a slit lamp in the familiar tower design – the SL 220 – and therefore now offers the two common operating concepts for slit lamps. The LED illumination and the optomechanical features of the SL 220 help physicians to diagnose eye diseases.
The VISUCONNECT® 500 software enables convenient data management, including in basic diagnostics. Patient data recorded using the preliminary examination devices for objective refraction and intraocular pressure can be automatically transferred to the electronic patient file or the practice data management system, such as FORUM.
Both of these non-mydriatic fundus cameras use an innovative, high-resolution optical chain. The combination of the integrated 24 MP sensor, the newly designed optical system and the enhanced image processing function ensures high image quality.
Other standard features, such as color and red-free imaging, enhance the visualization of different anatomical features.
Ease of use and detailed images of the ocular fundus enable fast and informative imaging, and can improve efficiency in the detection and treatment of eye diseases, as well as facilitate patient education.
The OPMI LUMERA® 300 surgical microscope for the routine segment distinguishes itself by being particularly good value for money and by using a lower light intensity. This makes treatment less stressful for patients. At the same time, physicians benefit from the customary good optics and illumination of the OPMI LUMERA product range. This device expands in particular the basic care offering, especially for customers in the rapidly growing markets of Asia.
