Innova TonoRef II

The TonoRef is an autokeratometer, non-contact tonometer and non-contact pachymeter.

A tonometer is used to measure intraocular pressure (IOP), which is the pressure inside your eye. A tonometry test is primarily used to check for glaucoma, which is a serious eye disease that can lead to blindness if not treated properly. There are several types of tonometers, including a non-contact tonometer that uses air and does not require eye drops. The TonoRef is one such tonometer.

This large pupil zone imaging method measures the central refraction and a large area refraction.The difference in the measurement allows assessment of the effect of pupil size on vision under mesopic conditions.

Keratometry measurements performed with the mire ring method reduces interference from the eyelids. The TONOREF™ performs measurements at diameters of 3.3 mm and 2.5 mm.Comparison of the two values allows a better understanding of the cornea shape.

Automatic Puff Control (APC) – In subsequent measurements, the APC function performs the measurement with the minimum air pressure based on the previous measurement data.

Diopsys Nova

NOVA ARGOS Tech View Desktop Screen Left Angle

The Diopsys NOVA is a non-invasive vision test that diagnoses vision disorders, helps doctors plan treatment, and helps monitor results. It utilizes electrophysiological technology, including Visual Evoked Potential (VEP) and pattern Electroretinography (ERG).

Visual Evoked Potential (VEP) measures the electrical response from a visual stimulus. A checkerboard or some other visual stimulus is placed in front of a patient, and electrodes are placed on the persons head to measure the electrical response of the patients’ eyes.

The patient is not required to give any verbal response, which makes this test perfect for young children, infants and those with communicative challenges.

Tear LabTearLab

Tear osmolarity has been shown to have the best predictive value for diagnosing Dry Eye Disease of any single test. TearLab’s sophisticated lab on a chip technology tests a tiny tear sample to measure Osmolarity or the salt content in the tears.

The Doctor will test both eyes and will take the highest number of the two tests, to generate Your Osmolarity Number. Your Osmolarity Number gives doctors a meaningful measure of the health and stability of the protective tear film that covers the surface of your eyes. The number generated correlates with the severity of the disease.

InflamaDry

The lack of correlation between clinical signs and symptoms of dry eye disease makes diagnosing and treating patients a challenge. Often times, inflammation is present before the clinical signs of dry eye. InflammaDry is the first and only, rapid result, in-office test that detects elevated levels of MMP-9, an inflammatory marker that is consistently elevated in the tears of patients with dry eye disease. All other dry eye tests measure tear production and stability. Using a simple 4-step process, InflammaDry recognizes elevated levels of MMP-9, to identify patients that may otherwise be missed with other dry eye testing methods.

Using direct sampling microfiltration technology, InflammaDry accurately identifies elevated levels of MMP-9 protein in tear fluid samples taken from the inside lining of the lower eyelid, the palpebral conjunctiva.

InflammaDry provides highly accurate results: 85% sensitivity, 94% specificity1

InflammaDry is a disposable, low cost test, that requires no additional equipment to administer or interpret results. Using four simple steps, InflammaDry test results are achieved in just 10 minutes, aiding in the diagnosis of dry eye before the patient leaves the office.

By using InflammaDry:

  • Doctors can make a rapid, accurate diagnosis at the point-of-care
  • Reduce complications associated with dry eye
  • Help improve clinical outcomes and patient quality of life
  • Identify and treat dry eye disease prior to surgery for better post-operative outcomes
