ZEISS is providing technologies and services to surgeons to enhance the cataract procedure with regards to efficiency, cost effectiveness and simplicity, while maintaining established standards and ensuring excellent patient outcomes. ZEISS has one of the largest portfolios in the industry, covering all workflow steps with high-quality products and services connected through a holistic system.
The IOLMaster® 700 with Central Topography (CT) allows surgeons to gain additional information and detect visually relevant asymmetries on central corneal shape with the standard ZEISS IOLMaster 700 measurement, without needing extra measurements, extra hardware, or extra time. The new IOLMaster 700 with CT also features an update to the Barrett Suite with the True-K TK formula allowing up to 12 percent more post-myopic LASIK patients to be within ±0.5D compared to the classic K calculation formula1. The update also includes ZEISS EQ Mobile cloud connectivity so doctors can access IOL calculation reports on their mobile device and transfer surgical planning data via the cloud to the operating room.
“Scaling and hues of the ZEISS IOLMaster 700 with Central Topography are optimized for easy and intuitive cornea checks,” says Dr. Douglas D. Koch, MD, a co-developer of the Central Topography software feature. “I am amazed at how much information we get from Central Topography.”
As an additional workflow enhancement, the CT LUCIA® 621P/PY from ZEISS with unique ZEISS optic design is the new-generation aspheric monofocal c-loop IOL in the hydrophobic ZEISS portfolio. The patented aspheric optic design of the ZEISS CT LUCIA device mitigates against potential decentration issues while still providing excellent visual outcomes. It also comes in a new and improved fully preloaded injector that promotes an easy and safe cataract workflow.
“The ZEISS optic of the CT LUCIA 621 makes the lens more forgiving, or less sensitive, when it comes to decentration,” said Dr. Andreas F. Borkenstein, MD, co-founder of Borkenstein & Borkenstein, Private Practice at the Clinic of Kreuzschwestern Graz, Austria.
“ZEISS is offering cataract surgeons and patients an improved surgical experience with innovative solutions such as the IOLMaster 700 with Central Topography and the CT LUCIA 621,” says Dr. Ludwin Monz, President and CEO of Carl Zeiss Meditec. “We’re excited to showcase the entire cataract workflow at ESCRS, demonstrating our commitment to providing customers with a better way of working, so they can provide their patients with specialized care every step of the way.”
