ICP Dry Eye analysis
ICP Dry Eye analysis

I.C.P Tearscope the new instrument of individual analysis of lacrimal that allow with a quick detailed structural research of the tear composition.
Possibility of researsch on the single layers:

  • Lipid
  • Aqueous
  • Mucin

Thanks to ICP Tearscope is possible to identify the type of DED(Drye Eye Desease) and determine which deficient layers can be treated with a specific treatment.


Thanks to ICP OSA is possible to identify the type of DED(Drye Eye Desease) and determine which deficient layers can be treated with a specific treatment.

Mucin layer and water layer analysis

The layer watery is evaluated on the meniscus tear categorizing in different categories and possible issues related this. The measurement in mm allows without invasiveness the direct evaluation of the quantity.

MGD Analysis meibomian gland desease

Easily and efficiently integrates complex examination, such as meibography into the ophthalmological and optometric practices.

Dry Eye is most commonly caused by the Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD). The Meibo-Scan shows the morphological changes in the glandural tissue.
System analysis of the images obtained through a sisnsitive infrared camera (NIR) in order to locate in a guided way:

  • The position detected from the image, valid both for the superior both for the inferior part of the eye
  • Calculating percentage of the extension in area of the present glands, taken by the operator
  • calculating percentage of the area of the missing glands
  • Absent and present coloring area
  • Classification in 4 different degrees
  • Loss between 0 and 25%
  • Loss between 25 and 50% in yellow
  • Loss between 50 and 75% in orange
  • Loss between 75 and 100% in red
  • Through the editor system is possible to modify the brightness of the picture of a better evaluation

Exam

ICP Dry eye analysis

I.C.P. Tearscope the new instruTearscope - ICP Dry eye analysisment of individual analysis of lacrimal layers that allow with a quick detailed structural research of the tear composition.
Possibility of researsch on the single layers:
• Lipid
• Aqueous
• Mucin
Thanks to ICP Tearscope is possible to identify the type of DED(Dry Eye Desease) and determine which deficient layers can be treated with a specific treatment.

 

ICP Tearscope allows to quantify directly and indirectly each single layer

Tearscope -single layerWith white LEDs lighting displays in vivo the phenomenon of interference fringes possible to assess the thickness of the lipid component of the tear and run the NiBUT.
With blue LEDs lighting (with the fluorescein) creates a large area and allows you to perform the BUT and look fluorescein of large diameter scleral and mini scleral contact lenses type.

 

Immediate interpretation and follow up

Tearscope - immediate interpretationThrough the use of GRADING SCALE dedicated to each value obtained from the exams, the interpretation of the obtained data results easy and immediate making the iPad a real platform dedicated to the analysis of dry eye with detailed temporal graphics that allow to demonstrate in simple steps the need of the treatments and then the effective functioning of these!

Mucin layer and water layer analysis

The layer watery is evaluated on the meniscus tear categorizing in different categories and possible issues related this. The measurement in mm allows without invasiveness the direct evaluation of the quantity.ugh the use of dedicated filters in real time after the acquisition.

 

Supplied accessories

Tearscope - Supplied accessoriesThe system is provided with a kit of useful grids to perform various screening, all filters are already present in the system software and includes tests to evaluate and diagnose dry eye problems and can recommend artificial tears.
• Measurement of BLACK LINE (MLMI)
• Evaluation of the integrity of cornea and ascertaining the presence of corneal scars and bruises. The product is already ready for the connection to Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM)
Supplied accessories
• Blue and white Led
• A thick grid to observe the quality of the tear film and measure the N.I.B.U.T.
• A fine grid to evaluate the quality and the structure of tear
• A Placido’s disc to highlight possible distortions or corneal irregularities
• A yellow and cobalt blue filter via software for applicative evaluation of rigid contact lenses.

 

Analysis lipid layer

Tearscope - Analysis lipid layerThrough a quick and easy acquisition of a series of 3 blinks, ICP Tearscope allows to obtain the thickness of the single Lipid Layer of the tear film classifying it in 7 different categories in a quick and precise way the secretion of the lipids by the Meibomian Glands.
Presence of grading scale and comparison in the time for detailed and precise follow up.
For a detailed analysis of the mucin layer, ICP Tearscope evaluates in both modes the break up time of the lipid layer and, so, the stability through the classic TBUT with possibilities of use of fluorescein in blue light the non-invasive and quick N.I.B.U.T.

 

Tear meniscus height measurement

Tearscope - Tear meniscus height measurementThe tear film is the thin layer of liquid (about 8 μ, its thickness is variable on basis the considered portion and it results at maximum at cornea level) composed 98% of water and for the remaining 2% by protein and lipids, that is continuously and uniformly distributed on the ocular surface of the closing of the eyelids and that performs irreplaceable functions for our sight.
In fact it is able to improve the optic quality of the image regularizing the corneal surface (it has an index of refraction of 1,33, very close to that of the cornea); it allows an adequate lubrication reducing the friction of the eyelids, it allows the transport and the diffusion of molecules (oxygen, carbon dioxide, ions, mucins, lipids with a slightly alkaline pH 7,3/7,8), vital elements for the survival of the epithelia and of the cornea, it has strong antibacterial activity thanks to the presence of some enzymes and it guarantees the parts and keeps the ocular surface clean removing impurities from the environment, the waste of metabolism and exfoliated cells.
