The Galilei G6 combines biometry, topography, and tomography, and it was just approved by the FDA this past summer.
“The Galilei G6 is the first device on the market to combine the actual refractive data of the anterior and posterior corneal surfaces with intraocular distances and axial length measurements,” said David Bragg, President of Ziemer USA. “It provides state-of-the-art biometry, measuring the central corneal thickness, the anterior chamber depth, the lens thickness, and the axial length within the same exam facilitating next-generation IOL planning.”
“In addition to its applications in cataract surgery,” Bragg continued, “the Galilei G6 can perform complete topographic and keratoconus screening of refractive surgery candidates. Plus the added benefit of corneal implant planning and keratoplasty patient follow up.”
Clinical Benefits of the G6
Workflow Efficiency. In one measurement session, the space-saving Galilei G6 acquires Placido topography, Scheimpflug tomography and optical biometry data for a comprehensive refractive and cataract screening. In addition, dual Scheimpflug cameras reduce the time to measure the anterior segment.
Most Complete Dataset. By providing high definition pachymetry, total corneal wavefront, curvature and astigmatism data of the anterior and posterior cornea, the Galilei G6 offers a comprehensive dataset to plan refractive and cataract applications. Combined with optical biometry and a series of IOL calculation methods the Galilei G6 helps identifying the most suitable IOL for every patient as well as precisely detecting anterior surface irregularities and tear film quality. Plus, CLMI.X asymmetry detection provides a precise assessment of corneal asymmetries.
User-Friendly Interface. The new software of the Galilei G6 offers an intuitive user interface with a live-view image of the eye for precise alignment of the exam and five-step measurement guidance for improved workflow. The Galilei G6 also fully interfaces with electronic medical record (EMR) systems
