Keratograph Crystal Tear Report
The Keratograph helps determine the cause of dry eye disease quickly and reliably with the assistance of the new Crystal TEAR Report in the Keratograph® 5M. The Crystal TEAR Report includes 4 comprehensive scans:
- Tear Meniscus Height
- NIKBUT (non-invasive tear film break-up time)
- Redness Scan (R-Scan)
- Meibomian Lower Lid Scan
Meniscus Tear Height Assessment of the Tear Film Quantity
The height of the tear meniscus can be precisely measured with an integrated ruler and various magnification options, and its development along the edge of the bottom lid can be assessed.
NIKBUT Assessment of the Tear Film Break-Up Time
The tear film break-up time is measured non-invasively and fully automatically. This scan is done by recording the way tears break up over the course of a few seconds without blinking. The infrared illumination is not visible to the human eye and prevents glare during the examination.
R-Scan Automatic Classification of Redness
Automatic classification of the bulbar redness. The R-Scan is the first module that automatically and objectively documents and classifies the bulbar and limbal degree of redness. The R-Scan detects the blood vessels in the conjunctiva and evaluates the degree of redness.
Meibography of the Bottom Eyelid
The Keratograph easily and efficiently integrates difficult examinations such as meibography. The dysfunction of meibomian glands is the most frequent cause of dry eye. Morphological changes in the gland tissue are made visible using the Meibo-Scan and can be classified with the JENVIS Meibo Grading Scales.
