Novus® Varia™
Premier 3-color laser photocoagulator

The Novus Varia is cleared by the FDA for the treatment of a wide range of retinal diseases. Sophisticated, yet simple, this system is designed to let the physician focus on the treatment, not the laser.
  • Versatility - 3 independent diode-pumped solid-state lasers in one integrated package, with instant switching between wavelengths via intuitive touchscreen interface or remote control
  • Flexibility - Wide choice of delivery devices, LaserLinks and eye safety filters; dual-fiber port enables rapid switching between delivery devices
  • Safety - Automatic detection of delivery devices triggers automatic adjustment of laser power settings
  • Precision - SureSpot™ optics provide sharply defined power distribution on the retina and low power density at the cornea and lens
  • Dependability - CaseSaver™ mode enables continued treatment - even if one laser is disabled
  • Usability - Air-cooled; plugs into 100-240 V, 50/60 Hz standard electrical outlet
  Green (532 nm)
  • Superior absorption in melanin and hemoglobin
  • Excellent when treating through clear ocular media
  • Clinically proven
Yellow (561 nm)
  • Less painful during and post laser treatment
  • Low absorption in xanthophyll greater margin of safety
  • Less intraocular scatter treats through sclerotic lens more easily
Red (659 nm)
  • Deeper choroidal penetration
  • Low absorption by oxygenated and deoxygenated hemoglobin
  • Useful for treating vitreous and sub-retinal hemorrhages
  LaserLink™ Z-1000

The LaserLink Z-1000 is easy to install; and its precision design offers spot sizes from 50 to 1000 microns. SureSpot optics deliver a well-defined, uniform beam for retinal photocoagulation.
  ClearView™ Filters

ClearView eye filters provide safety and high visibility. These notch filters protect the surgeon by blocking the laser treatment wavelengths (532 nm, 561 nm, 659 nm) while simultaneously allowing other wavelengths to pass. ClearView filters are photolytically balanced via proprietary coating to minimize color distortion of the retina, and maximize the "brightness" or visibility of the user's field of view.
  Optional Foot Switches

The PowerEase™ foot switch provides hands-free energy adjustment. The Smart foot switch inserts and removes the physician filter when a foot slides in and out of the housing.
  Laser Indirect Ophthalmoscope

Lumenis offers the surgeon a choice of two multi-wavelength LIOs - the Keeler Fison style or the Heine. Both are rugged and lightweight.
SureSpot™ Optics
Safety. Precision. Titration.
All Lumenis LaserLinks are designed with SureSpot optics, which provide low power density on the cornea, while maintaining a sharp spot on the retina. Lumenis patented optics offer true 50- micron spot size for optimal laser therapy. In addition, moving the slit lamp anteriorly or posteriorly allows fine adjustments to spot size and energy density, enabling the surgeon to create individualized laser treatment (titration).
Endo Probes
A full range of surgical handpieces are available: Standard, Illuminating and Aspirating endo probes. The Illuminating probe provides a second 500-micron fiber for the illumination source. The Aspirating probe combines laser with aspiration and connects to a standard operating room unit.
