Imaging ultra-wide without compromise.



Color. Clarity. Comfort.

The advent of widefield retinal imaging has shown us that indications of disease are often located in the far periphery of the retina. CLARUS® 500 is the next-generation fundus imaging system from ZEISS that provides true color and high-resolution across an entire ultra-widefield image.

See how you can reveal more with CLARUS 500, the newest retinal camera from ZEISS.

True color

Aids in diagnosis and documentation

CLARUS 500, the newest ultra-widefield retinal camera from ZEISS, allows clinicians to use color to their diagnostic advantage. ZEISS CLARUS 500 generates images that closely resemble the coloration of the fundus as seen during clinical examination. Color fundus imaging can aid in the diagnosis and documentation of ocular disease, ensuring confidence when evaluating the optic disc, nevi and lesions where color is important.

ZEISS CLARUS 500 allows clinicians to track subtle changes in pathology over time. In addition to true color imaging, it also captures high-resolution fundus autofluorescence (FAF) images–FAF-Blue and FAF-Green–and external eye images. Along with an intuitive review software, the ultra-high-resolution of this next-generation retinal camera from ZEISS allows clinicians to manage change with confidence.

Exceptional Clarity

To see subtle indications of disease anywhere in the retina

ZEISS CLARUS 500 captures clear and accurate images from the macula to the far periphery. Early indications of disease can often be subtle and difficult to see through direct observation or low-resolution fundus imaging. Leveraging ZEISS optics, CLARUS 500 is an ultra-widefield retinal camera that captures a high-resolution image down to 7 microns.

From the macula to the periphery with ONE system

Legacy ultra-widefield imaging systems require doctors to maintain a traditional high-resolution fundus camera for optic nerve and macular disease diagnosis and management. CLARUS 500 from ZEISS is the first fundus imaging system to provide true color and clarity within an ultra-wide field of view, enabling clinicians to capture high-resolution fundus images from macula to the far periphery.

For a satisfying patient experience that ensures image integrity

Simple, stable and intuitive, ZEISS CLARUS 500 is an ultra-widefield retinal camera that has been purposefully designed to optimize each patient's experience.

By bringing the optics to the patient, ZEISS CLARUS 500 helps create a comfortable, satisfying patient experience that provides images free of obstructions, such as lids and lashes, and requires fewer recaptures. 

Comfort on CLARUS 500

A stable and neutral head and chin rest brings the optics to the patient, facilitating an easier and more comfortable scan.

Comfort on CLARUS 500

The ability to swivel the device between the right and left eye helps technicians capture a high-quality image without realigning the patient.

Fewer recaptures with Live IR Preview.

The Live IR Preview in ZEISS CLARUS 500 allows the technician to optimize alignment–intervene with lid and lash, and remove image artifacts before capturing an image. The result is fewer image captures for the patient and a more efficient imaging process for the practice.
