What Are the Advantages of 3D Laparoscopy?

The natural vision of 3D improves laparoscopic skill and allows to perform laparoscopy much more precise with 3D.
ENDOEYE 3D delivers 3D depth perception with high-definition that enables quicker learning of lap surgery and improves the quality of care as perceived by the surgeons.
3D enables efficient operations of the surgery due to shorter OR time and better usability.

Check out our video in which numerous luminaries of laparoscopic surgery explain the advantages of 3D.

Tired of Tilting Your Head?

Experience the New ENDOEYE 3D
Olympus has overcome the technical barrier of video image rotation with a 30° rigid laparoscope. This allows correct orientation, no matter what viewing angle is desired. You can now change the view direction while maintaining horizontal orientation of images, enabling a continuous critical view in 3D.

Realistic and Convenient 3D Perception

Olympus ENDOEYE 3D is designed to provide a mild 3D perception so that surgeons can perform operations without stress. With our enhanced 3D imaging system we successfully developed a natural 3D perception of distances within narrow cavities as well as a high depth of field for clearer images. Early tests are showing that operators felt comfortable in viewing without the need of getting used to it.

A New World of Observation Possibilities

The new VISERA ELITE II system offers different observation possibilities such as Narrow Band Imaging (NBI) or infrared (IR) imaging. These technologies help to improve patient outcome during diagnostics or surgery.

Striving for Improved Quality of Patient Care

The Concept of the VISERA ELITE II System
With VISERA ELITE II Olympus has developed a versatile and efficient imaging platform. Thanks to its compatibility with a wide range of endoscopes and multiple observation methods like enhanced 3D visualization or special light observation, VISERA ELITE II is a clinically optimized solution for all medical specialties.


3D Laparoscopy

  • Exceptional 3D perception and brilliant image quality with rigid 0° and 30° ENDOEYE
  • 3D image rotation while maintaining the horizon with 30° rigid ENDOEYE
  • Autoclavable, focus-free, and plug and play

2D Laparoscopy

  • Natural color tone, reduced halation, and improved red color tone due to LED lamp
  • Observe organs and tissues from multiple directions with ENDOEYE FLEX 100° angulation
  • Compact and lightweight camera head for white light and infrared observation


  • Clear and bright visualization with enhanced image processing and videoscope technology
  • Shorter operating times thanks to improved image quality of videoscopes

Cystoscopy, TUR-BT

Narrow Band Imaging increases detection and reduces recurrence:

  • NBI visualized non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) lesions in an additional 17% of patients
  • NBI visualized 24% additional tumors
  • NBI visualized 28% additional carcinoma in situ (CIS)

Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

  • Improved operability due to compact and lightweight camera head
  • Broad covering of color gamut and enriched color reproducibility in Full HD
  • Improved brightness at distal point by changing the contrast setting


  • Improved HD image quality through more natural color reproduction thanks to LED lamp
  • Scope lineups with exceptional luminosity and wide field of view
  • Compatible with stroboscope light source


  • Improved operability due to compact and lightweight design
  • Ergonomic design offers different ways to hold and grasp the camera head

A New World of Versatility

Possibilities for a Whole World of Surgical Specialties
Today’s ORs are multifunctional, supporting a range of surgical specialties. That’s why VISERA ELITE II is fully flexible to the demands of all surgical procedures. It is an imaging platform for general surgery, for urology, for gynecology, for ENT, and more, which links the OR to other devices and facilities around the hospital. Share and play back images or videos with colleagues within the OR, in lecture theaters, or within departments to standardize training and perform peer-to-peer or patient consultations.

A New World of Simplicity

Compact One-Box System to Save Costs, Time, and Space
Whereas most 2D and 3D imaging systems require two or more devices, VISERA ELITE II provides everything in one compact system. The reduced number of devices and cables leads to a simplified OR workflow in terms of equipment preparation, maintenance, troubleshooting, and cable management. In addition the time for training of nurses and OR staff can be decreased.

Intuitive Handling and Easy Setup

The LCD touchscreen allows for easy navigation and configuration-setting without using a keyboard:

  • LCD touchscreen with intuitive icons, immediately familiar to use
  • Settings can be saved and loaded for customization usage
  • Easy staff rotation and training
