Ergonomics matters

More than half of ophthalmic surgeons suffer from neck and back pain with one cause being poor ergonomic practices in the operating room.1,2,3  Long-term effects include reduced productivity and serious musculoskeletal disorders.3  Working heads-up enables you to sit up straight and reduce physical discomfort – an approach that a vast majority of surgeons confirm as a key advantage.4

I very much enjoy working with the ZEISS ARTEVO 800 as the heads-up 3D display allows me to work in a more relaxed position. I do not want to change back to oculars.

The ergonomics of the ZEISS ARTEVO 800 is a boon to me, as it allows me to move and sit without hindrance.

The two points that convinced me most are that I was so relaxed – no neck pain, no back pain; that was really an eye opener for me. And the clarity of the image – I haven’t seen that much detail in any normal, standard microscope in the past. It’s the quality of what you see. I could see so much more compared to other microscopes. Being able to see the floaters in the vitreous in such details was impressive.
