LipiView® to test for Dry Eye Disease in Oklahoma City
LipiView is an ophthalmic imaging system used by our Oklahoma City and Shawnee doctors to test for dry eye disease. Developed by TearScience, this dry eye test is the first device of its kind that enables doctors to assess your tear film by capturing images that measure the thickness of the lipid (oil) component, and an examination of the quantity and quality of lipids being released from your glands using the Meibomian Gland Evaluator. Until the introduction of LipiView, your doctor did not have a way to show if you were lipid deficient. As part if the revolutionary TearScience system, your doctor will perform a series of tests to determine the likely cause of your dry eyes. Knowing what is causing your dry eyes will help your doctor determine the best treatment option.
The LipiView process is non-invasive dry eye test and only takes about five minutes to asses the lipid layer of your tears, and to scan the meibomian glands. During the dry eye test, you will look into a special light camera and blink normally. The computer-controlled program measures and captures the tear content and quality. You will receive the results of the dry eye test during your appointment. At that point, you and your Precision Vision specialist can discuss the best treatment options for your dry eye.
