FDA approves Zeiss software that treats nearsightedness

Zeiss Medical Technology announced that the FDA approved the VisuMax 800 with Smile Pro software.

The Carl Zeiss Meditec unit designed the software to treat nearsightedness, with or without astigmatism. Its latest generation of femtosecond lasers enters the U.S. market with more than 8 million eyes already treated with Smile software.

“The increasing global adoption of Smile from Zeiss represents the positive impact the small incision lenticule extraction procedure continues to have on the quality of life for patients,” said Andrew Chang, head of global sales for Ziess Medical Technology. “With the availability of the Zeiss Smile pro software module in the U.S. market, surgeons can now offer the latest refractive technology to help expand their business and provide excellent outcomes for patients.”
