IDRA is the new instrument for the individual analysis of tear film that allows to carry out a quick detailed structural research of the tear composition. Research on all the layers (Lipid, Aqueous, Mucin) and Meibomian Glands.
Thanks to the SBM Device it is possible to identify the type of Dry Eye Disease (DED) and determine which components can be treated with a specific treatment, in relation to the type of deficiency.
The IDRA automatically evaluates the quantity and quality of the lipid component on the tear film.
The device highlights the lipid layer and the software analyses automatically Lipid Layer Thickness (LLT).
The thickness of the tear meniscus that is observed on the eyelid margins provides useful information on the tear volume.
The tear meniscus can be examined considering its height, regularity and shape.
NIBUT WITH MAP AND GRAPH
The stability of the mucin layer and the whole tear film is assessed through the study of the break up time (BUT)
or non-invasive break up time (NIBUT), by using the Placido cone projected onto the cornea.
Meibography is the visualization of the glands through illumination of the eyelid with infrared light.
It images the morphology of the glands in order to diagnose any meibomian gland drop out which would lead to tear dysfunction.
This new imaging system provides strong evidence to support the choice of a specific therapy (for example IPL treatment) and helps the patient to understand why a certain therapy is being recommended.
It has been established that efficient blinking plays an important role in ocular surface health during contact lens wear
and that it improves contact lens performance and comfort.
This test helps to visually see blepharitis and presence of Demodex. It can be performed on the outer surface of the eye and eyelids.
OCULAR REDNESS CLASSIFICATION
Once the image of the conjunctiva with its blood vessels is captured, it is possible to compare it with the classification sheets of bulbar and limbal redness degrees.
Measurement of the pupil reaction to light with and without glare. Measurement mode: SCOTOPIC, MESOPIC, PHOTOPIC
WHITE TO WHITE MEASUREMENT
Evaluation of corneal diameter from limbus to limbus (white-to-white distance, WTW).
