The Efficient and Compact Excimer Laser

With its compact, ergonomic and mobile design, the SCHWIND AMARIS 500E Excimer laser is the efficiency model of the SCHWIND AMARIS product family

Cutting Edge Technology, Impressively Efficient

Fast and safe – the SCHWIND AMARIS 500E combines an extremely high ablation speed of 500 Hertz with a turbo 5D eye tracker, which actively compensates for the eye movements in five dimensions.
The result is a good balance between high speed and excellent
precision in ablation. In addition, the SCHWIND AMARIS 500E has the key advantages that come with being a leader in technology, such as automatic energy adaptation with Automatic Fluence Level Adjustment, temperature control with Intelligent Thermal Effect Control, the online pachymetry safety system, as well as the SCHWIND CAM software so you can plan customized treatments.

500 Hz Pulse Rate

The  pulse frequency of 500 Hertz ensures a very short treatment time. One dioptre of myopia is corrected with very high precision in only 2.0 seconds.*

*Without astigmatism, 12.5 mm vertext distance, 6 mm optical zone


Automatic Fluence Level Adjustment (AFLA)

The Automatic Fluence Level Adjustment (AFLA) method ensures an ideally balanced ration between the total number of laser pulses and the energy delivered. About 80 percent of the ablation is performed with a high fluence value. For the fine work – the remaining 20 percent – the laser system automatically switches to a lower fluence.


1050 Hz Eye Tracking

The eye tracker camera monitors the position of the eyes 1050 times per second with a latency time of 1.6 milliseconds. Altogether, the total reaction time of the laser system is only three milliseconds.

Active 5D Eye Tracking

The 5D active eye tracker compensates apart from the linear movements (1st and 2nd dimensions) rolling movements of the eye (3rd and 4th dimensions). Compensation of the eye’s rotation around its optical axis is achieved with the static and dynamic Advanced Cyclotorsion Control (5th dimension).  Automatic pupil size control and pupil centroid shift compensation ensure additional safety.


SmartPulse Technology

For the AMARIS laser, the geometric corneal model, the ablation pulse and the pulse distribution were optimised based on extensive research.

The result: the innovative SmartPulse Technology improves vision quality in the early postoperative phase of all treatment methods. Surface treatments as SmartSurfACE benefit in particular, since a LASIK flap does not contribute to smoothing of the stromal surface until it regenerates.

Intelligent Thermal Effect Control (ITEC)

The thermal control process prevents damage to the surrounding corneal tissue, even at very high ablation speed. ITEC ensures that the laser pulses are distributed in a thermally optimised, dynamically adapted way, which gives the individual position on the cornea sufficient time to cool off. Following pulses can thereby approach an already cooled position faster.


TransPRK - "No-Touch" Treatment

With the SCHWIND AMARIS laser systems it is possible to carry out no-touch, all-laser surface ablations. The so-called TransPRK (Transepithelial Photorefractive Keratectomy) is an advanced version of surface treatments as LASEK, Epi-LASIK and PRK. Thereby the epithelium, which is the regenerative surface of the eye, is ablated by the laser system. The TransPRK is a transepithelial single-step treatment that avoids the eye coming into contact with any instrument.


Innovative Particle Aspiration System

The unique particle aspiration system of the SCHWIND AMARIS technology ensures stable microclimatic conditions across the cornea. Particles that could shield energy during ablations are thereby effectively removed. At the same time, the climatic conditions remain constant, preventing the cornea from drying out.

Diagnostic Slit Lamp

The diagnostic slit lamp for flap checking is compactly designed and can be moved around two axes across the entire working area.

Swivelling Patient Bed

The swivelling patient bed provides added operating comfort. The bed can be used for other stages of treatment without having to change the position of the patient.


Multi-functional combination topography device and aberrometer. The optical characteristics of the cornea and the entire eye are analysed in a single measuring procedure.


Combined system for refractive and therapeutic corneal surgery. The highly precise, multi-functional diagnostic device combines a rotating Scheimpflug camera with a Placido disc.
