Keeping you at the center stage

With our latest innvations, ZEISS TIVATO 700 and ZEISS EXTARO 300 we do just that: We keep you at the center stage. 

Your aspirations.

To see things differently.

ZEISS has been a pioneering force in the development of surgical microscopes since the 1950s. We continue to innovate technologies to keep you on the leading edge of patient care. In fact, the first surgical microscope used in ENT surgery was from ZEISS. The first microscope you used during surgery was probably from ZEISS, as well. No other company has such a long history of expertise in this field. We believe that a microscope should enhance your performance and aid your decision-making. You need more than excellent magnification and illumination, you need state-of-the-art visualization, so that you can fully focus on your patient. We understand.

See different


Workflow-enhancing visualization of ZEISS TIVATO 700 enables you to have state-of-the-art modalities at your fingertips with ZEISS Infrared 800 and ZEISS Yellow 560. Augmented Visualization of ZEISS EXTARO 300 with its Multispecral Mode and NoGlare Mode enable a more accurate assessement of the surgical situation for better outcomes. 


We know that our work can help many people

Your expectations.

To have stability and freedom of movement

72% of ENT physicians report neck and back pain, and over half of these attribute it directly to ENT surgery.1 You need a visualization system that is ergonomically designed and does not contribute to musculoskeletal disorders. One with the flexibility to ensure that every position is covered, designed for maneuverability, precise positioning, and with stability that you can rely on. You need a visualization system with enough range and clearance so you can see, move and operate easily. With complete freedom of movement, you can fully concentrate on your patients. We understand.

Have stability and freedom of movement


Ultimate Reach & Flexibility of ZEISS TIVATO 700 keeps you always in position to perform and gives you and your team the freedom to handle every OR situation with confidence. Single-Handed Operation of ZEISS EXTARO 300 allows you to perform procedures with maximum focus and efficiency.

Your connections.

To intuitively link your devices and minds

Today’s operating environment is high tech. Your visualization system needs to be fully integrated within this new landscape. Smart and simple to use, it should be able to record and connect, so others can see what you see, and experience what you experience. In an increasingly digital world, data should be seamlessly accessible, transferrable and secure. With smooth communication and effortless connection, you can provide even better patient care. We understand.

Link your devices and minds intuitively

The History of ENT Surgical Microscopes by ZEISS

Because, we understand! There’s a reason that millions of people place their trust in ZEISS. Developing new innovations, forging meaningful partnerships and ensuring deep commitment are all part of our DNA.

OPMI® 1: A Breakthrough from ZEISS

In 1953, Dr. Hans Littmann developed OPMI 1 – a more stable surgical microscope that is easier to operate and has superior coaxial lighting to other microscopes.

ZEISS OPMI 1 is the progenitor of modern surgical microscopes.


We understand. BEGINNINGS

Obsessed with precision, Carl Zeiss destroyed his first microscope in 1847. From then, through to the 3,000th microscope in 1876, and even today, only the best devices leave the ZEISS workshop.


We understand. PARTNERSHIPS

Maintaining close connection with users, who were often leading innovators themselves like Gunnar Holmgren, Horst Wullstein, Fritz Zöllner and others, has always been a key element at ZEISS.


We understand. COMMITMENT

Dr. William F. House pioneered the use of surgical microscopes and enabled astronaut Alan Shepard Jr to walk on the moon! Dr. William F. House, known as the Father of Neurotology developed a variety of new concepts in otology. ZEISS shares this commitment.
