VisuMax Femtosecond Laser

ZEISS VisuMax Ideal platform for femtosecond laser solutions

With the VisuMax®  femtosecond laser, ZEISS is shaping the world of refractive surgery. This ground-breaking laser system employs high-performance femtosecond laser technology and is characterized by its cutting precision, speed and gentle treatment technique. The ZEISS VisuMax is thus the ideal platform for therapeutic and refractive laser applications such as Lenticule Extraction with SMILE® from ZEISS and Femto-LASIK flap cuts.

Extensive range of femtosecond laser applications

With its cutting precision, speed and gentle treatment approach, the ZEISS VisuMax is the ideal platform for cutting-edge corneal surgery applications – including Flaps, Keratoplasty, and Incisions for ICR and ZEISS SMILE.

In combination with the MEL® 90 excimer laser from ZEISS, furthermore, it addresses the wide-ranging needs of modern refractive surgical practices, such as PRK/LASEK and Femto-LASIK.

ZEISS VisuMax femtosecond laser and ZEISS MEL 90 excimer laser

Highly accurate outcomes thanks to reliable cutting precision

High-precision ZEISS optics integrated in the ZEISS VisuMax femtosecond laser provide an extremely focused laser beam. The result: minimum laser pulse energy at a high pulse frequency for accurate incisions – at precisely the desired depth of the cornea, with three-dimensional, curved incisions.

In addition to the ZEISS VisuMax's cutting precision, perfectly matched energy settings and spot spacings contribute to a sophisticated cutting system that results in a very smooth stromal bed surface. The autocentration function of the ZEISS VisuMax ensures centration of the treatment on the vertex. These VisuMax features make Lenticule Extraction with SMILE from ZEISS a predictable and stable procedure for moderate to high myopia, as documented by long-term follow-up.

Experience driven

The cockpit design of the ZEISS VisuMax puts every control at the surgeon`s fingertips. It incorporates an easy-to-use, interactive touchscreen and intuitive software to assist the surgeon at every step of the procedure.

The system features integrated slit illumination for immediate checkup – without the patient needing to be moved. With a laser pulse frequency of 500 kHz, the ZEISS VisuMax permits short treatment times for more comfort for both the physician and the patient.

Another advantage is the fast and efficient workflow when combined with the ZEISS MEL 90 excimer laser, which features a data connection and pivoting patient support system.
