  DRY EYE IS A DISEASE!
 
 Proper diagnosis is the first step toward relief.
 
Dry eye is one of the most under-diagnosed ocular diseases, and yet it is the most common reason why patients go see their eye care professional.

Dry eye is a multifactorial disease of the tears and ocular surface that results in symptoms of discomfort, visual disturbance, and tear film instability with potential damage to the ocular surface. It is accompanied by increased osmolarity of the tear film and inflammation of the ocular surface.

Osmolarity
In fact, dry eye disease occurs when your eyes do not produce enough tears or produce poor quality tears. That's why it's essential you get your tears analyzed by your eye doctor. Only an eye doctor can properly diagnose your problem and treat it appropriately.

We will take a sample of tears from each eye and use the TearLab device to measure osmolarity (the saltiness of your tears). As osmolarity in your tears increase ocular surface cells become damaged. Your doctor will need an amount of tear fluid no larger than the period at the end of this sentence.
 
tear lab
  A precise and predictive point-of-care diagnostic test


The TearLab Osmolarity System is intended to measure the osmolarity of human tears to aid in the diagnosis of dry eye disease in patients suspected of having dry eye disease, in conjunction with other methods of clinical evaluation. We use the TearLab osmolarity data to inform you of your treatment plan based on disease severity and we manage your progress by evaluating therapeutic effectiveness.

TearLab is pioneering the future of tear film diagnostics to elevate patient care. Using its first of a kind point-of-care ophthalmic in vitro diagnostic platform, TearLab allows us to add data to your insights to guide the diagnosis and management of the ocular surface. With precise and predictive information available in a matter of seconds, we are able to evaluate tear film health, uncover abnormal osmolarity and inform your treatment plan based on severity, and manage your progress. 
 
   Features In-depth Tear Film analysis


The CA-800, Topcon's corneal analyzer, enhances the diagnosis for dry eye patients with the new Tear Film analysis. The CA-800 is a placido-based topography system that delivers accurate, high resolution images of the anterior corneal surface. The latest features of the CA-800 includes an enhanced meibography observation and a comprehensive analysis of the Tear Film by using the Blink Detection and Tear Breakup Time measuring modes.

Blink Detection
The Blink Detection automatically detects blinks and calculates the average blinks per minute and blinks interval. The analysis of the Blink Detection includes the average Inter-Blink Interval (IBI average) that is used to calculate the Ocular Protection Index (OPI), the IBI standard deviation, the total duration of the time range analysed and the average number of blinks per minute.
   
Tear Breakup Time
The Tear Breakup Time (TBT) records the patients tear film condition while they hold their blink and calculates the time of first breakup and average time for breakup of the Tear Film.

This new feature allows video playback with a coloured overlay to show the quality of the corneal surface. The sectors will be color-coded from green to red according to the scale on the left side of the image, showing the breakup overtime of the Tear Film.
   
Enhanced meibography observation
With the infra-red illumination of the CA-800, the Meibomian Glands of the upper and lower eyelid can be captured and analysed. Now two types of adjustable Contrast Enhancement are displayed directly below the image to enhance the Meibomian Gland viewing.

The Soft Contrast Enhancement is a more subtle contrast adjustment and makes the dark areas of the image darker, while the Hard Contrast Enhancement is a more dynamic contrast adjustment that brings more detail to the image for improved observation capability. 
 
 InflammaDry   InflammaDry is the first and only, rapid result, in-office test that detects elevated levels of MMP-9, an inflammatory marker that is consistently elevated in the tears of patients with dry eye disease. Using a simple 4-step process, InflammaDry recognizes elevated levels of MMP-9, to identify patients that may otherwise be missed with other dry eye testing methods.

With InflammaDry we can:
• Make a rapid, accurate diagnosis at the point-of-care
• Reduce complications associated with dry eye
• Help improve clinical outcomes and your quality of life
• Identify and treat dry eye disease prior to surgery for better post-operative outcomes
Using direct sampling microfiltration technology, InflammaDry accurately identifies elevated levels of MMP-9 protein in tear fluid samples taken from the inside lining of the lower eyelid, the palpebral conjunctiva. Using the four simple steps, InflammaDry test results are achieved in just 10 minutes, aiding in the diagnosis of dry eye before you leave the office.
