Nidek has developed the new GS-1 Gonioscope which provides 360° automated colour ACA imaging with novel viewing options. With a 16 mirror Gonio lens, the GS-1 rapidly captures quality colour images of the whole anterior chamber angle and the structures therein. A simple alignment process allows for quick and easy auto capture of the whole 360° angle and the neatly designed device comes with a large rotatable LED touch screen. Image capture itself takes around 16 seconds per eye and the whole process, including set up, takes about two minutes per patient.
The GS-1 captures multiple images for each segment of the whole angle at varying focal planes and automatically uses the best image from each segment to stitch together a complete image of the whole angle. There are thus many viewing options available to the practitioner.
It is clear that this device will revolutionise gonioscopy in ophthalmology.
