Tear Film Interferometry

The LipiView® interferometer is the first device of its kind that enables the doctor to assess your tear film. It intended for use by a certified technician or physician to capture, archive, manipulate, and store digital images of specular (interferometric) observations of the tear film, which can be visually monitored and photographically documented.
Using these images, the LipiView® Interferometer measures the absolute thickness of the tear film lipid layer. The tear film can be clearly seen as an array of colours that are reflected when a light source is directed towards the front surface of the eye.
Readings are instantly calculated
and displayed on the LipiView® monitor.
