A Better Way to Look at It
How surgeons can detect focal pachymetry change that is potentially related to early manifestation of ectasia
sponsored by Ziemer
Early signs of corneal asymmetries are often visible on the posterior surface first – and that’s why the reliable measurement of both anterior and posterior surfaces
is vitally important. GALILEI, a diagnostic device from Ziemer, is able to make all the measurements required for cataract and refractive surgery planning in a single session, making it a truly complete solution for ophthalmic surgeons.
Placido topography, Dual-Scheimpflug tomography, and optical biometry, with all measurements aligned to first Purkinje reflex, are combined within the GALILEI device to
assist surgeons in reliably measuring the anterior and posterior surfaces, as well as the eye’s axial length. The system’s two Scheimpflug cameras provide precise pachymetry and elevation data, which aid in the early detection of asymmetry and bulging.
