For more than 30 years, ZEISS has been pioneering the Laser Vision Correction market. Our innovative procedures, devices and software, including SMILE® and PRESBYOND®, have allowed ophthalmologists to attract new patients and achieve new levels of success. Around the globe, surgeons not only utilize high-quality, German-made inventions, they also have the support of expert knowledge backed by 175 years of experience in the optics industry. Always moving forward, we continue to significantly influence the corneal refractive market.
Based on Nobel Prize-winning technology, SMILE from ZEISS re-shaped the Laser Vision Correction market upon its introduction in 2011, significantly increasing the amount of LVC surgical procedures throughout the entire ophthalmic field. Today, more than 4 million eyes have been treated with SMILE, proving its effectiveness, impact and value for both patients and surgeons.
A suitable choice for patients with presbyopia, PRESBYOND from ZEISS combines the simplicity and accuracy of corneal refractive surgery with the benefits of increased depth of field. The customized laser vision correction creates a fusion of the two images for near and distance vision – the so-called “Blend Zone.”
