Lisbon, Portugal – Ziemer Ophthalmic Systems AG, Port Switzerland, introduced the first rotating Dual Scheimpflug Analyzer. Named after Galileo Galilei, the Galilei analyzer is a high-precision optical system for corneal topography and three-dimensional analysis of the anterior segment.

According to the company, the Galilei incorporates dual Scheimpflug Imaging and the merging of Placido and Scheimpflug data. Dual Scheimpflug Imaging captures slit lamp images from opposite sides of the illuminated slit lamp, and averages the elevation data obtained from corresponding opposite slit images. This technique improves the detection of the posterior corneal surface and provides for outstanding accuracy in pachymetry across the entire cornea, according to Ziemer Ophthalmic Systems.

The Galilei also features high-resolution slit images of the anterior segment, pachymetry, topography of the cornea and lens, densitometry and chamber analysis. It covers white-to-white and incorporates an adjustable near/far fixation target that allows examination of the anterior chamber, crystalline lens, and any IOLs under near and distance accommodative conditions.
