Is the new instrument of individual analysis of tear film that allows to do a quick detailed structural research of the tear composition. Research on all the layers: Lipid, Aqueous, Mucin.

Thanks to I.C.P. IDRA it is possible to identify automatically the type of DED (Dry Eye Disease) and determine which layers can be treated with a specific treatment, in relation to the type of deficiency.

HOW ARE DRY EYES DIAGNOSED ?

Ocular surface workup with automated non-invasive measurements for the diagnosis of meibomian gland dysfunction

Dry eyes can be diagnosed through a comprehensive eye examination. Testing, with emphasis on the evaluation of the quantity and quality of tears produced by the eyes, may include:

  • Patient history to determine the patient's symptoms and to note any general health problems, medications or environmental factors that may be contributing to the dry eye problem.
  • External examination of the eye, including lid structure and blink dynamics.
  • Evaluation of the eyelids and cornea using bright light and magnification.
  • Measurement of the quantity and quality of tears for any abnormalities. Special dyes may be put in the eyes to better observe tear flow and to highlight any changes to the outer surface of the eye caused by insufficient tears.

CAUSES

  • The natural aging process, especially menopause
  • Diseases that affect your ability to make tears, like Sjogren's syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, and collagen vascular diseases
  • Conjunctivitis
  • Environmental conditions. Exposure to smoke, wind and dry climates can increase tear evaporation resulting in dry eye symptoms. Failure to blink regularly
  • Problems that don't allow your eyelids to close in the right way
  • Treatment with Cataract surgery
  • Treatment with Medications including antihistamines, decongestants, blood pressure medications and antidepressants, can reduce tear production
  • Other factors. Long-term use of contact lenses can be a factor in the development of dry eyes
  • Refractive eye surgeries, such as LASIK, can decrease tear production and contribute to dry eyes.

REMEDIES

  • Treatment with Artificial tears
