ZEISS Announces OCT Technology Enhancements


ZEISS Medical Technology announced today that the CIRRUS® 6000 from ZEISS now enables a highly efficient and data-driven workflow for ophthalmologists, supported by the largest OCT (optical coherence tomography) reference database in the U.S. market, as well as newly enhanced cybersecurity features. As part of the ZEISS Medical Ecosystem, the latest OCT device from ZEISS, which recently received clearance by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), helps support informed, data-driven patient care decisions across ophthalmic workflows from disease diagnosis to treatment and ongoing management.

Proven Analytics: As the largest reference database across all OCT devices in the U.S. market today, the ZEISS CIRRUS 6000 reference database now offers a comprehensive library of 870 healthy eyes, more than tripling the previous versions, with greater diversity, taking into account different optic disc sizes in addition to age. Elevating the standard of care for patients, the expanded reference database is a useful tool to facilitate individualized approaches to diagnoses and ocular health and disease management.

“ZEISS continues to forge the way toward a future of more personalized care by pioneering state-of-the-art digital workflow innovations that are proven to increase efficiencies and improve patient outcomes,” 1 says Euan S. Thomson, Ph.D., President of Ophthalmology Strategic Business Unit and Head of the Digital Business Unit for ZEISS Medical Technology. “Our expansive CIRRUS 6000 reference database provides greater data-driven insights to ophthalmologists.”
