Galilei G6 is an advanced optical biometer used by optical surgeons for precision in optical procedures. It is also called a corneal topographer. It is a device that can be used for cataract patients and patients who need refractive surgery.
In cataract patients, surgeons use it to determine the IOL power so that an artificial lens can replace the patient’s natural lens. In refractive surgery, it is used to assess patients at risk of Ectasia and is also used to monitor Keratoconus patients.
Galilei G6 is the latest generation with double Scheimpflug and integrated Placido disc.
It is a highly modern device that comes across as an all-in-one solution for optical experts. Developed by Ziemer Ophthalmic Systems AG, it combines Placido-disk-based topography, Scheimpflug tomography, and optical biometry. It helps in the case of comprehensive screening of a patient.
Optical cases are exceptionally delicate, and even the slightest flaw can lead to major issues. Galilei G6 is equipped with advanced technology to provide complete and comprehensive data for a single screening.
It can measure the anterior segment of the eye- including the pupil, cornea, lens, and anterior chamber. It also assists in assessing the IOL power for lens implantation in cataract surgeries.
What makes Galilei G6 so extraordinary?
The diagnosis is precise and comprehensive. It enables everything in one. be here
Dual Scheimpflug tomography (to analyze the anterior segment of the eye)
Placido topography (to study the corneal surface)
and optical biometry (to examine the eyeball and measure the curvature of the cornea)
combined in one instrument and one series of measurements. And thus, all the data that is needed in refractive (operations that change the overall refractive power of the eye) and cataract surgery (“cataract” stands for cataract).
One device – everything in view. You can plan with us.
The procedure offers maximum planning security for the implantation of premium lenses and the implementation of arcuate incisions. The innovative technology helps you select the optimal IOL (an artificial lens in the eye).
On the one hand, as a patient, you can use all these advantages; on the other hand, the processes are also simplified for the eye laser team. With the G6, the efficiency of our work is significantly increased because the combination of collection and storage of all necessary data for refractive and cataract surgery is new.
Another plus is that Galilei G6 enables optimal post-operative care and control.
If you have any questions about the new method, give us. Or it is best to come to our eye laser practice for a personal consultation.
A cataract is a condition where the eye gets clouded or blurry. It usually happens with aging but can also occur due to internal injury in the eye.
As the eye gets clouded, the vision of a person gets blurrier. To correct this, an ophthalmologist suggests IOL surgery. In IOL surgery, the eye’s natural lens is replaced with an artificial one. For this procedure, accurate measurements of the optical structures are required before surgery.
Galilei G6 Lens Professional is an excellent tool to assist in this procedure.
Refractive surgery is performed to correct the refractive power of the human eye. Refractive power is also known as spectacle power and is performed when a person wants to reduce their dependency on glasses or lenses.
The Galilei G6 allows a clinician to perform a complete topographic screening for refractive surgery.
In the context of making ophthalmologists’ work more accessible, here are a few features of this optical biometry device that make it so preferable:
The Galilei G6 device is the only device to combine Placido Disk Topography, Scheimpflug tomography, and Optical biometry.
In assessing corneal tomography, this device delivers precision to pachymetry values and elevation levels. It is an ideal device to monitor changes and corneal stability with its feature of the realignment of maps in 3D.
With its patented iris-based eye motion compensation, this device reduces the surgeon’s stress about patients’ eye movement during a screening.
Superior IOL Calculation
It is beneficial in calculating Toric IOL power in case of cataract surgery. The device calculates the IOL power using formulas like- Haigis, Holladay I, Hoffer Q, and SRK/T for refractive surgery.
The G6 provides a dataset for IOL calculation and lens selection. With dual-Scheimpflug imaging, Placido, and lens measurement, this device’s lens selection process is more straightforward.
Toric IOL requires the measurement of total corneal and posterior astigmatism in cases of astigmatism correction. Galilei G6 combines different parameters like lens thickness, total corneal power, etc., to predict the optimal IOL power.
With a reliable screening system and AI tools, this device helps identify patients at risk for post-surgery ectasia.
Ectasia: Ectasia is a condition where the cornea starts thinning. When the cornea’s inner layers become weak and distorted in shape and thus affects the visual quality.
Ectasia can occur after a LASIK procedure; however, modern technology makes the chances low. If someone develops ectasia after surgery, it can be risky, and they should visit an ophthalmologist immediately.
Designed for Femto Cataract
The G6 is specially designed for the Femto cataract procedure. Traditionally, the surgeon operates on a patient with a blade. In Femto laser surgery, there is no involvement of blades. Incisions are made on the eye with the help of a controlled laser.
Galilei G6 uses dual-scheimpflug technology for acquiring accurate pachymetry data. This data visualized with Hd elevation in a map leads to an exact characterization of the cornea.
After the device is done mapping the patient’s eye and gathering all the data, live 3D images are streamed on the computer screen. The computer is used to control the laser used in Femto cataract surgery.
The essential tool for premium implants and relaxing corneal incisions:
The Galilei G6 provides all the data for an optimal result during the implantation of premium implants or during relaxing corneal incisions by laser: high-definition pachymetry, astigmatism, and radius of curvature. The display of the total corneal wavefront and high-degree aberrations helps identify the implant of choice for each patient. In addition, the Galilei G6 offers a comprehensive analysis of pre-and post-operative results.
A superior implant calculation:
The Galilei G6 offers the most comprehensive platform for implant calculation thanks to Dual Scheimpflug, Placido data, and axial length. Considering lens thickness data, total corneal power, astigmatism, and high-degree aberrations, it is the system of choice for advanced implant calculation methods and future calculation methods.
Simplifying Patient Flow
The Galilei G6 Lens Professional is a complete diagnostic tool integrating tomography, topography, and biometrics in a single system and measurement session. It allows you to acquire and store all the data necessary for refractive surgery and cataract surgery on a single machine, significantly increasing patient flow, reducing maintenance costs, and optimizing space in your practice.
The Galilei G6 features all the features of the G4 with brand-new software designed to improve and simplify implant calculation and premium implant selection.
The Galilei G6 is a three-in-one diagnostic solution that integrates tomography, topography, and biometry. One screening consists of a corneal tomography/ topography scan followed by three consecutive axial biometry scans.
The retina and anterior segment are scanned thrice consecutively in this process. This assessment process is streamlined but is divided into three consecutive alignment-click-based steps.
Galilei G6 can assess various optic parameters in one screening. Using this device to gather data and assist in optical procedures reduces the manual work and lowers the steps in surgery.
Useful with Keratoconus patients
Keratoconus is a condition where the eye’s cornea gets distorted and bulges outward in the shape of a cone. This disease is believed to originate from the posterior region of the eye. Galilei G6 helps monitor keratoconus patients.
Galilei G6 can diagnose keratoconus by detecting irregularities in the corneal surface with the help of Scheimpflug tomography.
In cases where the surgeon can detect keratoconus, the patient isn’t subjected to LASIK surgery. Otherwise, it can lead to complications.
Galilei G6 serves many purposes in the ophthalmologist’s office single device. And as it reduces workspace and the number of people to operate it, more and more surgeons prefer it. More upgrades and more innovative technology can make it more beneficial to optical care.
