Carl Zeiss Meditec announced the availability of two new optical coherence tomography (OCT) applications. Advanced algorithms for the Cirrus HD-OCT and Stratus OCT systems provide ophthalmologists with new glaucoma and retina imaging applications.

Cirrus HD-OCT provides the detailed scan patterns and layer maps for identifying retinal and glaucoma disease characteristics and monitoring disease progression.

Stratus OCT features both advanced serial analysis and guided progression analysis software for objective measurement and subjective clinical evaluation in the detection of glaucoma and retinal diseases. The system is designed to plot retinal nerve fiber layer thickness over time and report statistically significant change.

In other news from Carl Zeiss Meditec, a new platform for its multi-color laser (VISULAS Trion) offers advanced photocoagulation with improved power, reliable performance, and stability at yellow, red, and green wavelengths.

New OCT Software (Visante) offers anterior and posterior corneal topography with high-resolution OCT and disk technology (ATLAS Placido).

An integrated operating room suite offers new technologies:

  • The latest surgical microscopes from Carl Zeiss Meditec (OPMI Lumera and OPMI Lumera T) feature illumination technology that increases stability, contrast, and brilliance of the red reflex.
  • Aspheric IOLs (ZEISS Optic [ZO]) enable reduction and control of the spherical aberrations of the eye while showing low sensitivity to decentration and tilt.
  • New axial length algorithms and improved keratotometry are now available on the non-contact biometer (IOLMaster). Enhanced evaluation capabilities help increase the number of measurable patients, enhance workflow, and increase practice efficiency.
  • An integrated workflow system for ophthalmic surgery (CALLISTO eye) includes software for patient administration, video recording, and a touch-screen computer for accessibility and control of all functions in the operating room.
