About Surgical Microscopy

What does a surgeon expect from surgical microscopy? Sharp, clear images, flexibility and ease of use, and high-quality video and recording systems. Surgeons in the fields of neurology, ophthalmology, otolaryngology (ENT) and plastic reconstructive surgery rely on operating microscopes to magnify their view of the surgical site and provide information beyond what is visible to the naked eye.

In recent years, surgeons have benefitted from many technological innovations that have enhanced microscope performance, expanded the array of available diagnostic and operative tools, and ultimately improved surgical outcomes and patient wellbeing. Some examples of recent developments in surgical microscopy include: compact horizontal optics, increased reach and overhead clearance for optimum maneuverability, ergonomically-designed microscopes and accessories to improve surgeon posture and comfort, fully integrated HD video and recording in 2D and 3D, intraoperative fluorescence to see blood flow or brain tumors, and stable red reflex.

Frequently Asked Questions Surgical Microscopes

Leica Microsystems offers a wide range of surgical operating microscopes covering microscopic visualization for diagnostic purposes as well as the large field of clinical microsurgical interventions. These include surgery in the anterior and posterior segment in ophthalmology, neurosurgery (spine and cranial), ENT surgery, plastic reconstructive surgery, and dental surgery.

A surgical operating microscope allows a surgeon to view the anatomy of a patient in high magnification, making it possible to clearly see the finest details with very good resolution and contrast. Surgical microscopes also enhance the surgical view with integrated visualization technologies such as Augmented reality Fluorescence in Neurovascular procedures or built-in OCT for complex ophthalmic surgeries. Compatibility with other devices, such as IGS-systems, endoscopes or DICOM further augments the surgical view, helping to stay focused on the patient and ease surgical decision making.

For fine surgical procedures, often visualization solutions play an essential role, allowing the surgeon to perform the surgery under the best conditions. More and more surgeons are using microscopes rather than binocular glasses. The reasons are that microscopes provide much greater magnification making it possible to see the finest details. But they also offer many other benefits: an extended depth of field, high-resolution imaging, freedom of movement, ergonomic posture, integrated visualization technologies and augmented reality for utmost confidence in surgical decision making.

Leica surgical microscopes are shipped in the configuration that best fits your stated surgical needs. In case your needs change later, you can always upgrade your operating microscope by adding available accessories. Our most advanced microscopes like the Proveo 8 and the ARveo as well as M530 OHX have been developed with an open-architecture concept, hence you will always be able to update to new imaging modalities/technologies as they become available.

Ongoing, long-term support is key to Leica Microsystems. Our commitment starts at production and continues through assembly, shipment, delivery, installation, and on into the maintenance programs we offer. Because we believe that in today’s world, simply selling products will not do.


Designed with both visualization and workflow in mind, Leica ophthalmic microscopes respond to surgeon needs through each step of an anterior or posterior procedure. Advanced digital imaging technologies, such as intraoperative optical coherence tomography, is seamlessly integrated into the Proveo 8 microscope. Features, such as pre-programming of settings for different surgery phases and wireless footswitch integration, support operating comfort and efficiency.
