Noninvasive real-time monitor for diagnosing and defining dry eye syndrome
IR-MED developed a breakthrough light based technology for diagnosing, with no touch, dry eye syndrome and defining the individual composition of the tear film and its stability, in just few seconds. To this end, IR-MED measures tear evaporation time and tear film composition without touching the eye globe in a glimpse.
Among them are the Schirmers test that measures the amount of tears, the tear breakup time test which determines how long it takes for tears to evaporate from the eye surface, and a host of biological assays which quantify the three main components of the tears, lipids, aqueous and mucous. These all are costly, complicated and time consuming to perform and are not available even in advanced clinics. IR-MED technology will perform these tests instantaneously to aid the physician in decision making in the diagnosis and treatment of dry eye syndrome.
