ZEISS Surgery Optimizer: New insights & improved effiency

New insights and improved efficiency

Compare your technique, 360° overview

An AI-based segmentation algorithm automatically divides each case into its phases. Selected cases can be reviewed from the beginning or at any stage. With a single click, cataract surgeons can advance to focus on a particular maneuver. The ability to compare your video to a reference case video enables you to:

  • Work on your surgical technique
  • Benchmark yourself to a curated selection of reference cases
  • Train other ophthalmic surgeons

What’s more, a comprehensive set of analysis tools and a KPI dashboard allows to:

  • Track your own and your clinic’s performance
  • Conduct customized analysis
  • Get an independent 360° view of your and your clinic’s surgical performance
