Integrated workflow

For diagnostics, refractive lasers, and nomogram analysis.

ZEISS Refractive Workplace can help you modernize your clinical workflow with convenient review and planning. With digital connectivity to FORUM, you can view and select diagnostic data for each patient on one platform.

The software can help you optimize laser vision correction procedure planning as well as therapeutic laser treatments. Enter your planning parameters easily into the intuitive user interface. Saved treatment plans can be quickly retrieved, while all necessary information is digitally transferred from Refractive Workplace via FORUM to VISUMAX 800 and MEL 90  from ZEISS. It all adds up to a streamlined workflow that delivers enhanced efficiency and reduces the possibility of transcription errors. There is no need to manually plan the treatment on the device. Even nomograms, created with VISULYZE® from ZEISS2, can be viewed and used within the next SMILE treatment planning.

Remote treatment planning

Remote treatment planning

The platform for evaluation, planning, and advanced treatment modules.

The diagnostic data made available by FORUM can be used in Refractive Workplace from ZEISS, empowering your remote planning. Simply choose your treatment type, then add your parameters. When selecting your patient for laser vision correction, the most relevant assistant functions can be preset – saving you and your staff valuable OR time. For added convenience, the software automatically reviews your parameters to make sure there are no errors.

Refractive Workplace is your helpful tool for efficient planning with VISUMAX 800 and MEL 90 from ZEISS in the comfort of your clinical rooms away from the OR.
