Save time during pre-operative processes

Based on FORUM® from ZEISS, the ZEISS EQ Workplace enables single-click data transfer and auto-population of data, saving you time pre-operatively. Access biometry and diagnostic data remotely and calculate IOLs and use latest state-of the art formulas such as the new Kane formula suite or Barrett with TK. Anytime, anywhere.

Pre-plan your surgery remotely: Connect to your ZEISS CALLISTO eye and prepare your surgical assistance functions. When starting your surgery all relevant assistant functions are already preset – saving you and your staff valuable OR time.

Further protect against never-events

The ZEISS EQ Workplace provides you with a new level of protection against never-events by streamlining and automating the following processes:

  • ZEISS IOLMaster data is transferred automatically to the ZEISS EQ Workplace, to populate the relevant fields for IOL calculation and selection
  • IOL data copies directly into your IOL order
  • For ZEISS CALLISTO eye, IOL and surgical assistance data is transferred automatically
  • Verify if the IOL you have selected pre-surgically is the one at hand by comparing the IOL information with the data on ZEISS CALLISTO eye
