Here are the tests we will be performing and their explanations:
LipiScan™ Dynamic Meibomian Imager (DMI)
Meibomian Gland Evaluator™ (MGE)
To perform the InflammaDry test, tears are collected from your lower eyelids. A small, soft piece of fabric will be gently dabbed along your lower eyelid to collect tears. The tear collection process takes less than a minute and is not painful. Results only take 5-10 minutes and will be discussed before you leave the office.
Tear Breakup Time
The most common dyes are rose bengal, lissamine green and fluorescein. The individual dyes will stain the eyes differently. For example, fluorescein will pool in epithelial erosions and stain devitalized cells.
Rose bengal will also stain dead and dying cells, in addition to the cells that are healthy but are not adequately coated by a mucin layer. Rose bengal can cause some discomfort, however. Lissamine green is similar to rose bengal, but without the discomfort. Your doctor will select the dye(s) most effective for your examination.
