Dry eye test
Most significant way to help your dry eye patients
Office diagnostic tests for dry eye diagnosis have many non conclusive tests. Unfortunately they are only suggestive such as the Schrimer test, TBUT, tear osmolarity, but are not diagnostic. Our advanced fluorescent Diode and yellow barrier filter find subtle punctate changes. Punctate stain is the only objective test for dry eye. It also tells the degree and severity that corresponds to patient’s complaints.
Photos help in patient follow up
This patient was treated for dry eyes. The left represents the original findings while the right shows the improvement a month later. Note the change in punctuate stain and the reestablishment of the tear film.
Below is an important new development. Watch the video of the blink and tear film dynamics. Note the tear film coating, it’s spread and breakup. This is called dynamic tear film analysis.
How this works: Yellow Barrier filter
The filter slides in and out. This permits external photos and quickly converts to yellow Wratten type filter
Brighter and wider fluorescent diode beam
The special fluorescein exciting LED light is designed especially for diagnosis of external ocular tear film abnormalities. Unlike the typical slit lamp 10 mm blue light it is more intense and has a greater field. It allows you to see the lid action, tear film spread and breakup like never before.
Highly Recommended if your slit lamp does not have a yellow filter
