Delivering superior phaco efficiency.

ZEISS Phacoemulsification & Vitrectomy Systems

ZEISS phaco, vitrectomy and lens fragmentation systems

Experience the difference of superior phaco efficiency

ZEISS VISALIS family phacoemulsification systems incorporate a series of functions designed to optimize phaco and vitrectomy efficiency. And with the new miLOOP® from ZEISS we introduce a micro-­interventional device designed to deliver zero-energy endocapsular lens fragmentation.

ZEISS miLOOP lens fragmentation device

Less energy, less phaco power

Using micro-thin super-elastic, self-expanding nitinol filament technology, the ZEISS miLOOP device is designed to offer cataract surgeons the ability to achieve full thickness lens fragmentation for any grade cataract minimizing the intraocular ultrasonic vibrations and phaco power.1

ZEISS VISALIS 500 family

with APM

Equipped with the new APM® (Advanced Power Modulation), VISALIS® S500 and V500 from ZEISS provide:

  • Reduced phaco energy2
  • Capturing followability2
  • Superior cutting efficiency2
  • Improved chamber stability2

APM is an automated pulse-shaping modulation technology that combines burst and pulse ultrasound energy into one modulation pattern.

ZEISS Visalis 100

for reliable phaco in your OR
