TrueVision, Leica to combine computer guidance, ophthalmic microscopes

TrueVision 3D Surgical and Leica Microsystems have entered into a global agreement to integrate computer guidance technology for cataract and refractive surgery into ophthalmic microscopes, according to a press release from TrueVision.

The agreement will expand the companies’ relationship, which began in 2012 with a focus on neurosurgery, by adding computer-guided microsurgery capabilities to ophthalmic microscopes, including the Leica M822 and M844 models.

The new platform, which will be marketed and supported through Leica’s distribution channel, will be available later this year, the release said.
