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
  • For ZEISS IOL users, the ZEISS EQ Mobile1 app lets you confirm the selected IOL by scanning the barcode on the IOL package

Access your data from anywhere

With ZEISS EQ Workplace you get access to your data from anywhere in the clinic. Additionally with the separately available ZEISS EQ Mobile1 app biometric and surgical planning data automatically uploads to a cloud instance for remote access via your iPad or iPhone. Thus you have access to relevant data wherever you go, which is especially beneficial if you practice at several clinics. Additionally you can now connect your mobile device with ZEISS CALLISTO to flexibly select patients and transfer patient data sets.
