Introduced in 2006 the VisuMax® femtosecond laser from ZEISS for refractive surgery convinces with a wide range of possibilities, e.g. precise cuts for Femto-LASIK flaps, keratoplasty or intracorneal ring segments. Beyond that, the ZEISS femtosecond laser was specifically designed for the Small Incision Lenticule Extraction procedure with the launch of SMILE® in 2011.
In 2011 SMILE was introduced as the first commercially available software for the Small Incision Lenticule Extraction procedure.
More than 1,000 VisuMax femtosecond lasers have been installed worldwide.
More than 2 million eyes have been treated with SMILE on the VisuMax until today.
The VisuMax offers exceptional cutting precision and speed, outstanding safety and efficiency for corneal refractive surgery solutions. Renowned ZEISS optics and highly convenient workflow features have made the ZEISS VisuMax femtosecond laser system a favored tool for a wide variety of treatment applications for the cornea.
