  • Applications

    MEL 80

    With the MEL 80 and the VisuMax®, ZEISS has assembled two top-of-the-line products as a seamlessly coordinated system solution, including 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 the ZEISS VisuMax femtosecond laser, the ZEISS 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 ultra rapid IR camera catching both pupil and limbus on the MEL 80 and 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 the MEL 80 excimer laser, patient transfers between surgical steps are just a quick turn. Furthermore, the short ablation time of the fast MEL 80 reduces procedure time. Treatment planning and data entry needs to be done only at one laser since the systems communicate with each other. The result, both the patient and the surgeon experience the Femto-LASIK surgery as a fast, integrated process.
