Dry eye can cause redness

Dry eye disease is on the rise

Dry eye disease is now on the way to becoming a widespread disease.
At least 17% of the total population are affected and the number’s growing. Those affected complain of many symptoms such as: discomfort with itchy, burning, and tired eyes among the most common complaints. As dry eye syndrome is a multifactorial disease, it is critical that ophthalmologists and optometrists set the right course for effective diagnosis and treatment. multifactorial disease it is critical that ophthalmologists and optometrists set the right course for effective diagnosis and treatment.

With the innovative OCULUS Keratograph® 5M and the integrated Crystal TEAR Report you have one of the best and most efficient ways to do this.

Identify dry eye disease with certainty

There is no single test to successfully diagnose dry eye disease. Different factors contribute to the disease, and sufferers complain about different symptoms. The key to analyzing the various components in dry eye and identifying its cause is therefore a comprehensive diagnostic approach. The following is a glance at the many risk factors that can trigger dry eye.

  • Meibomian gland dysfunction
  • Acne rosacea
  • Diabetes mellitus
  • Vitamin A deficiency
  • Glaucoma medication
  • Corneal surgery
  • Environmental factors
  • Allergies

Documentation and screening of dry eye syndrome in one procedure

To successfully diagnose and treat dry eye syndrome, this requires more than just a detailed examination. You must first question the patient in a professional manner. The best way of doing this: surveys which the patient fills out themselves or together with the ophthalmologist or optometrist. There are now international standards for this, such as the DEQ OSDI (Dry Eye Questionnaire Ocular Surface Disease Index) or the McMonnies DEQ. They help the ophthalmologist or optometrist to record valuable information in a structured manner and to precisely assess the extent of dry eye syndrome.

A key advantage is that the internationally recognized questionnaires are stored in the Crystal TEAR Report. Moreover, they are available to you at the push of a button during the examination.

Advantage: non-invasive diagnostic techniques for dry eye

After taking the patient’s medical history, the examination procedure is crucial. There are various options with non-invasive or minimally invasive examination techniques offering great advantages. For one thing, they enable data to be collected on the ocular surface without significantly inducing reflex secretion. This allows the uninfluenced status of the ocular surface to be represented. If tests become necessary during the examination, they should always be performed after non-invasive tests.

The OCULUS Keratograph® 5M offers some considerable advantages. This is because the most important dry eye examination methods are direct and easy to carry out. Clearly structuring the individual steps of the examination ensures that safe and time-saving recordings are given. At the same time, the anterior segment of the eye is assessed safely and efficiently.

Efficient treatment of dry eye

In order to treat the large number of patients effectively and efficiently, a clear process is more necessary than ever before. From an initial standardized screening through to the monitoring of results, well-structured processes are required. Only then can you concentrate on the most important thing: successfully treating the condition. The Crystal TEAR Report provides optimal support. It breaks down all steps from the initial examination to the monitoring of results:

  • Standardized screening – quick overview in just 5 minutes
  • Individual screening – impressive and complete
  • Follow-up – targeted monitoring of results
