Heidelberg has announced the launch of Anterion, its new anterior segment platform, in the UK.

Due to be launched at the United Kingdom & Ireland Society of Cataract & Refractive Surgeons Congress on November 8-9, Anterion is a single workflow efficient solution that brings together corneal topography and tomography, anterior segment metrics, axial length measurement and Intra-Ocular Lens calculation.

Jacqueline Sousa Asam, Medical Science Liaison at Heidelberg Engineering, said: ‘Anterion is a multimodal imaging platform, which can replace several devices. That leads to great improvement in the workflow and patient comfort in busy clinics, since moving patients can be unpleasant and time consuming. In addition, Anterion displays information in very comprehensive layouts together with high-resolution OCT images, which also makes surgical planning faster and more efficient.’
