TrueVision: Transforming Refractive Cataract Surgery

TrueVision was founded on the core belief that the future of microsurgery is digital rather than optical.  In creating the Digital Microscope Platform®, TrueVision has addressed unmet surgeon needs in glaucoma, refractive cataract, and general ophthalmic surgery.

TrueVision® Heads-up Surgery freedom of movement

  • Surgeon ergonomics is an issue highlighted by the AAO Ergonomics Task Force
  • By age 50, 67% of surgeons suffer injury, 71% by age 55
  • Heads-up surgery allows freedom of movement, while retaining access to oculars at all times

In use every day at hundreds of surgery centers around the world

After I did couple of cases, it was seamless. I realized that I had the level of comfort to do intraocular surgery. I was operating from beginning to end heads up fashion within 4-5 cases. The system is truly unbelievable. Simply, a game changer.
– Rob Weinstock MD

To put it short, the image quality really blew us away.
– Ike Ahmed MD

The image quality has come so far that we can really comfortably do this [surgery] The ergonomic benefit could be a potential life saver.
– Steve Vold MD

So I think the greatest advantage of the system now is any surgeon can use the system. Now, I never look through the oculars.
– Jim Katz MD

The detail, the depth of focus, the color correction, the confidence that I have gained using this tool is immense.
– Jon Solomon MD

TrueVision has certainly hit a home run. I did all the cases without looking through the oculars. The optics are really indescribable, you have to see it, to see how far they have come with this technology.
– Jim Schumer MD

Digital Microscope Platform Configurations

We offer the award winning Digital Microscope Platform® that converts your existing microscopes including Zeiss and Leica, into a heads-up surgery system and adds applications capabilities not available in traditional optical Microscopes.
