ZEISS VISALIS phaco and vitrectomy systems

Experience the difference

VISALIS® 500 from ZEISS phaco and vitrectomy systems incorporate a series of functions designed to optimize your workflow efficiency and provide reliable support throughout the day.

APM technology

Hot swap flexibility

Modular system

Phacoemulsification

ZEISS VISALIS S500

VISALIS S500 is a reliable phaco system with premium cataract technology.

Phacoemulsification and vitrectomy

ZEISS VISALIS V500

VISALIS V500 is equipped for both cataract surgery and retina surgery, eliminating the need for external modules and saving space in the OR.

Cost effective phacoemulsification

ZEISS Visalis 100

The ZEISS Visalis 100 is tailored to meet the economic needs of your practice and provide reliable phaco in your OR.

Optimized phaco efficiency

APM® (Advanced Power Modulation) is an automated pulse shaping modulation technology that combines burst and pulse ultrasound energy into one modulation pattern. It provides the efficiency of the burst to impale the nucleus and the speed of pulse to remove the quadrant.

Overall, APM lowers the measured effective phaco time (EPT) by as much as 73%, accelerates cataract removal and improves anterior chamber stability by 32%.1

Hot swap flexibility

One cassette for both pumps and for combined anterior and posterior surgery. Swap intraoperatively between the peristaltic and venturi pump, as needed.

Designed for posterior surgery, hot swap capability facilitates the low flow or high cut-rate techniques while working close to the retina. The aspiration and cutting rate can be controlled independently with the footswitch.

Modular phaco and vitrectomy system

In addition to premium cataract technologies, ZEISS VISALIS V500 features leading posterior vitrectomy functions – eliminating the need for external modules and saving space.

The ZEISS VISALIS S500 can be upgraded to a ZEISS VISALIS V500 at any time, on site. You can expand into vitreoretinal procedures whenever you want.

ZEISS Visalis 100

The capturing followability1 of the ZEISS Visalis 100 attracts and continuously engages nucleus fragments on the phaco tip. Unique in its class, it enables a 1.8 mm incision, which can potentially reduce surgically induced astigmatism and accelerate wound healing.

Adaptive Power Control measures and stabilizes the tip stroke, resulting in potentially less stress for your patient's eye. The wide variety of reusable accessories ensures that the ZEISS Visalis 100 is tailored to meet the economic needs and cost-effectiveness of your practice.
