Do You Use the Lumera Microscope from Zeiss?

My ASC just got the new Lumera micrscope from Zeiss.┬áIt’s a paradigm shift. The clarity and red reflex are like nothing you’ve ever seen- even the clips from YouTube don’t do justice. To be honest, though, I still plan on using Tryptan blue on my difficult capsulorhexis cases, whereas some surgeons state (not unreasonably) that with this microscope, you don’t need it. Anyway, any microscope that makes things clearer is an advantage, and I think that soon, this technology will be dominant (unless they perfect the 3D heads-up monitor). Kudos to Zeiss.
