LipiView Evaluation

Lack of visible signs can make identification and diagnosis of MGD difficult and frustrating.  The TearScience® SPEED™ Questionnaire, LipiView® II, and Korb MGE™ provide our eye care professionals with a streamlined method for identifying and diagnosing MGD, with confidence.

Check out the TearScience Lipiview/Lipiflow steps to diagnosing and treating MGD.

At Dedham Ophthalmic Consultants and Surgeons, we have incorporated the three step process for diagnosing and treatment of MGD. They are as follows:

  1. The Standard Patient Evaluation of Eye Dryness (SPEED™) Questionnaire identifies and rates dry eye symptoms by asking four simple questions on symptom frequency and severity. Validated by independent researchers, if symptoms are detected, LipiView® II and a gland evaluation are recommended.
  1. The Korb Meibomian Gland Evaluator™ (MGE) is the only instrument that provides a standardized, repeatable evaluation of meibomian gland function by applying the pressure of a deliberate blink while observing gland function through a slit lamp. The Korb MGE™ can be easily added into a routine eye exam and allows eye care professionals to determine function, track progression and treatment response.
  1. LipiView® II with DMI is the only instrument available that assesses both meibomian gland function and structure to detect MGD in its earliest stages..
