The market launch of the slit lamp in 1912 heralded the dawn of the medical technology business at ZEISS. It was just the first of many pioneering inventions in the fields of ophthalmology, microscopy and radiotherapy. Today the Medical Technology activities of ZEISS are today largely bundled under the umbrella of the TecDAX-listed company Carl Zeiss Meditec AG in which Carl Zeiss AG holds ca. 65 percent interest.
