Dry eye can cause redness

The incidence of dry eyes is on the rise

Dry eye syndrome is now on the way to becoming a widespread disease. At least 17 % of the total population are affected. And the numbers are growing. Those affected complain of many symptoms and disorders: itchy eyes, burning eyes, tired eyes - to name only the most common complaints. Since this is a multi-factor disease, it is crucial for ophthalmologists and optometrists to set the right course already during anamnesis and to use the appropriate equipment for effective diagnosis and treatment.

You have one of the best and most efficient options to do this with the innovative OCULUS Keratograph 5M and integrated JENVIS Pro Dry Eye Report .

Reliable detection of dry eye

There is not one single test for a successful diagnosis of dry eye. Various factors always contribute to the disease and those affected complain of different symptoms. The key to the analysis of various factors in wetting disorders and to determining their causes is therefore a comprehensive diagnostic approach. A glance at the many risk factors that can trigger dry eyes underlines this necessity.

Risk factors of dry eye:

  • Meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD)
  • Acne rosacea
  • Diabetes mellitus
  • Vitamin A deficiency
  • Drug-based glaucoma therapy
  • Corneal operations
  • Environmental factors such as
    • Smoke, ozone, dry air, air conditioning, computer work, etc.
  • Allergies

Anamnesis and screening of dry eye in one procedure

It is not only a precise examination that is important for successful analysis and treatment of dry eyes. Rather, the first step is the professional questioning of the patients. Optimal for this: questionnaires that the person concerned completes himself or goes through together with the examiner. International standards such as the DEQ OSDI (Dry eye questionnaire Ocular Surface Disease Index) or DEQ McMonnies are available. They help the ophthalmologist or optometrist record valuable information in a structured manner and to precisely classify the extent of the dry eye syndrome.

A big advantage: The JENVIS Pro Dry Eye Report stores most internationally known questionnaires. And during the examination they are available to you at the push of a button.

Advantage: non-invasive diagnostic technology for dry eyes

After anamnesis, the focus is on the examination procedure. There are various options - whereby a non-invasive or minimally invasive examination technique has great advantages. It enables the collection of data on the ocular surface without stimulating significant secretions. This allows the eye surface to be rendered without influences. If invasive tests become necessary during the examination, they should therefore always be carried out after non-invasive tests.

The OCULUS Keratograph 5M offers clear advantages here. This is because the most important examination procedures for dry eye are immediate and easy to be carried out. The clear sequence of individual examination steps guarantees safe and time-saving images. At the same time, a safe and efficient assessment of the anterior segment of the eye is ensured.

Efficient treatment of dry eyes

In order to treat a large number of patients effectively and efficiently, a clear procedure is more necessary today than ever before. Well-structured processes are required, from the first standardized screening to performance monitoring. This is the only way to focus on the most important thing: successful treatment. Here too, the JENVIS Pro Dry Eye Report provides optimal support. Because it structures all steps from the initial examination to performance monitoring:

  • Standardized screening - a quick overview in only 5 minutes
  • Individual screening - impressive and complete
  • Follow-up - targeted performance monitoring

How it works in practice

A structured anamnesis combined with all important examination methods ensures the successful detection and treatment of dry eyes. Because the symptoms and complaints are many and varied, individual steps must be optimally coordinated. This is the only way to equally ensure safety for the diagnosis, reliable recommendations and efficiency. And this is what the OCULUS Keratograph 5M with integrated JENVIS Pro Dry Eye Report stand for. You can find out what makes this combination so special, here.
