Diagnosing Dry Eye: How the LipiView Works…
LipiView is a noninvasive device that provides a digital image of a patient’s tear film. This instrument is also used in the measurement of the tears’ lipid content and quality. LipiView is a dry eye examination procedure that provides a proper diagnosis, at Ophthalmic Consultants of the Capital Region to diagnose whether the patient will need a LipiFlow treatment procedure or must undergo other dry eye therapy treatments intended for curing anyone with a dry eye condition.
Dry Eye is a long-term chronic disease that takes years to develop. Dry Eye may be suspected with the presence of the following symptoms:
- discomfort and irritation
- grittiness or feeling of a foreign body in the eye
- burning or stinging sensation
