Fast performance

Gain confidence in your workflow

VISUMAX® 800 from ZEISS offers reduced laser time in comparison to its predecessors, faster cut speeds, and intelligent assistant systems that help you enhancing control during your procedures.

Increased laser frequency for faster cut speeds

The improved laser pulse repetition rate of 2 MHz, combined with a high-performance laser scanning system, makes it possible to create a lenticule in less than 10 seconds1 and a flap incision in around 5 seconds2.

With a faster laser speed, a shorter suction time is expected, which can increase your peace of mind and reduce stress for you and your patients during the treatment.

The biggest advantage, I think, is the laser time - 10 seconds1. It's unbelievable. For us, the surgeons, and also for the patients. By the time I start talking, it's done. Brilliant.

Intelligent assistant systems

Enhance control during your procedures

With ZEISS VISUMAX 800 you also benefit from a smart and computer-assisted cyclotorsion and centration aid, which can bring more precision and control to your procedures.

OcuLign: easy cyclotorsion alignment

The intuitive OcuLign® pattern rotation system offers a new experience with cyclotorsion alignment. By automatically recalculating the treatment pattern, it helps to counter any cyclotorsion that may occur.

CentraLign: little effort during centration

The CentraLign® assistant system is a computer-controlled function for easy centration. It uses the pupil center and vertex position, giving you full control of centration already during the docking phase. And because the centering of the eye is assisted before docking, it enables a smooth docking process.

with ZEISS quality optics

As part of the ZEISS VISUMAX 800, the OPMI surgical microscope contributes to precise visual control during manual surgical manipulation of the cornea.

  • Easy patient access

    with comfort and control

    While the patient lies on the patient support system, you have full control over the position of the device. Without the need to move the patient, either the laser arm or OPMI arm can be easily brought into the working position for surgery.

  • Tracking distances

    positioning made easy

    Ultrasound sensors assist in actuating the laser arms while integrated top-view, side-view, and therapy cameras allow you to ergonomically observe the surgical environment between the device and patient.

    Additionally, height tracking assists suction stability by tracking the device head relative to the patient’s eye during laser treatment.

  • Highlight your practice

    with customized laser arm illumination

    Whether you want to match the device to your clinic’s corporate identity or give patients a choice that provides them a better visual comfort, you can choose from eight different illumination colors for the laser arm.
