Visiometrics system the only diagnostic to measure lines lost due to poor tear film
Costa Mesa, California (November 8, 2017) – Visiometrics’ new Tear Film Analyzer is a fast, objective, and non-invasive way to measure vision fluctuation caused by dry eye disease. By measuring patient Vision Breakup Time (VBUT), doctors can improve outcomes, increase satisfaction and grow revenue.
The Tear Film Analyzer is the only diagnostic tool to quantify VBUT – how long it takes a patient to lose one line of vision. There is no wait time for drops, strips or long protocols; the exam takes under one minute. By analyzing the tear film in its natural state, without disturbing it, VBUT during a Tear Film Analyzer exam more accurately reflects VBUT under real world conditions, and patient comfort is increased.
The objective measurement of the Tear Film Analyzer removes variability in patient reporting. It also provides a baseline to track the effectiveness of dry eye treatment. The easy-to-read report created by the Tear Film Analyzer aids in patient education, helping patients to see how their vision is affected by poor tear film. Better understanding increases patient compliance, improving outcomes and patient satisfaction.
The Tear Film Analyzer is available with an optional touch screen package, for a more compact footprint and faster navigation. The flat screen display can also be removed for patient discussions.
The Tear Film Analyzer will debut at the American Academy of Ophthalmology annual meeting in New Orleans, November 11-14.
