The ZEISS Cataract Suite enables surgeons to more efficiently achieve
the precision implantation of premium intraocular lenses (IOLs). The
ZEISS Cataract Suite integrates the fastest, most accurate optical
biometer1, the IOLMaster® 500, with the gold
standard OPMI LUMERA® 700 surgical microscope and the new
computer-assisted surgery system, CALLISTO eye®.

Steven D. Vold, MD, President & Medical Director Vold Vision describes
the benefits of the cataract solution from ZEISS as follows: “With the
ZEISS Cataract Suite, the level of integration is amazing CALLISTO is

Data management systems are gaining increasing importance in the field
of ophthalmology. Here as well, ZEISS offers its customers comprehensive
solutions. By precisely linking systems, the FORUM® Eye Care
Data Management System from ZEISS enables the optimization of clinical
workflows. The review and analysis of data and clinical decision making
is simplified by the data processing carried out in FORUM. As the data
are saved in a central location, they are immediately available to the
doctor anywhere needed.
For smaller practices, ZEISS offers the pre-configured FORUM®
GO package as a customized data management solution. Up to three ZEISS
diagnostic systems may be connected. This solution allows doctors to
quickly and efficiently access the examination data for further
evaluation. "FORUM has diversified the commitment of ZEISS to
ophthalmology from strictly a box sales approach to overall improved eye
care and practice management solutions," says Rishi Singh, MD, Medical
Director, Clinical Systems Office at Cleveland Clinic, Cole Eye
Institute, Ohio, USA.
The US clinical trial on the minimally invasive SMILE procedure has also
shown promising results to date. SMILE stands for Small Incision
Lenticule Extraction and combines state-of-the-art femtosecond laser
technology and precise lenticule extraction to produce an innovative
correction procedure in refractive surgery that does not require a flap.
The ZEISS femtosecond laser VisuMax is used to create a very thin disc
of tissue (lenticule) inside the intact cornea, which can then be
extracted through a small opening. In December 2013, the FDA granted
approval to extend the trial to include myopia of up to –10.0 diopters.
"That is what we always dreamed about," says study participant William
Culbertson, MD, Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, University of Miami Health
System. He continues, "It might extend our ability to treat patients,
even with eyes a bit drier or a cornea a little bit thinner than
"The reports from doctors who use the ZEISS Cataract Suite, the FORUM
Data Management System and our innovative SMILE procedure confirm our
approach combining powerful technologies into complete integrated
solutions that provide tangible value for our customers in support of
their daily practice and to achieve the best possible outcomes for their
patients," says Dr. Ludwin Monz, President and CEO of Carl Zeiss Meditec

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time.
