    MEL 80 Excimer Laser

    High performance meets versatility

    The MEL® 80 is a top quality ZEISS product, designed to make the correction of vision defects even safer, more patient-friendly and individual. All the parameters of this ultramodern work platform are oriented towards increasing efficiency, achieving optimum treatment results and the rapid recovery of vision. Key factors here are the very high ablation rate, the high-performance eyetracker system and individual treatment planning with the optional CRS-Master®.

    MEL 80 is the excimer laser with a wide field of application, including

    • Femto-LASIK
    • LASIK
    • Customized treatments as PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision and topography guided treatment
    • Surface ablation treatments as PRK and LASEK and
    • Therapeutic treatment as Phototherapeutic Keratectomy (PTK)

    Added to this are tangible benefits for your daily work such as the overall ergonomic design concept and the economical operation of the system. Reap the advantages of an investment which is forward-looking, practical and profitable!

  • Applications

    MEL 80 - the excimer laser with the broadest portfolio of applications

    With MEL® 80, the VisuMax® and the CRS-Master®, ZEISS has assembled three top-of-the-line products as a seamlessly coordinated system solution, including preoperative examinations, individualized treatment planning and precise flaps, followed by highly accurate refractive correction and follow-up examinations.


    Femto-LASIK with MEL 80 excimer laser and VisuMax femtosecond system

    When you want to see a better performance

    Combined with VisuMax femtosecond laser, MEL 80 excimer laser offers an optimally coordinated system solution for refractive laser surgery – for a convenient workflow, efficient patient management and the best possible results.

    High-precision flaps created by the VisuMax on the one hand, specially optimized ablation profiles, very short ablation time, an active eyetracker with excellent feedback times and an ultrarapid IR camera catching both pupil and limbus on the MEL 80 on the other hand help surgeons to produce excellent results.

    Through the combined use of the pivoting patient supporting system between the VisuMax femtosecond system and MEL 80 excimer laser, patient transfers between surgical steps are just a quick turn. Furthermore the fast MEL 80´s short ablation time reduces procedure time. The treatment planning and data entry needs to be done only at one laser since the systems communicate with each other. Both, the patient and the surgeon experiences the Femto-LASIK surgery as a fast, integrated process.

    Specially optimized ablation profiles, very short ablation time, an active eyetracker with excellent feedback times and an ultrarapid IR camera catching both pupil and limbus on the MEL 80 help surgeons to achieve excellent results with their LASIK treatments. The treatment planning and data entry can either be done on the MEL 80 or with the optional CRS-Master.


    Customized treatments

    MEL 80 excimer laser and CRS-Master – your customized success system

    ZEISS has dedicated itself to constantly improving the customized ablation procedure. One successful result of this development is the CRS-Master. This system integrates into the MEL 80 and gives you full control over all treatment parameters at a glance. So you can combine conventional refractive surgery with customized surgery, depending on the indication.

    The CRS Master PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision option also offers a new approach to age-optimized laser vision correction and therefore meets the needs of the growing group of patients reaching the presbyopic age.
    In classic monovision, one eye is corrected for near and the other for distance vision. A multifocal ablation, on the other hand, creates a greater depth of focus. As an optimized and progressive vision treatment method, PRESBYOND Laser Blended Vision combines the advantages of both of these approaches.
    With PRESBYOND, each eye is harmoniously adjusted to the other according to a multi-variant algorithm. The dominant eye is customized mainly for far vision, while the other eye is adjusted for near vision. However, there is an intentional degree of overlap in the depth of focus of both eyes, the so-called blend zone. Generally, the brain quickly adjusts and combines the two images to offer patients much greater depth of vision, while also reducing the need for reading glasses.
    Through its underlying principle, PRESBYOND Laser Blended Vision can surmount the shortcomings of other presbyopia management methods by preserving a certain amount of stereoscopic vision.
