Automatic detection module area of Meibomian Glands
ICP can, in a guided way, detect the length and width of meibomian glands imaged by infrared meibography without requiring any input form the user.
The images are then automatically classified.
Through an acquisition of imageswith infrared camera, the ICP MGD allows the evaluation of the gland.
The criticality is made through five-level scale. The evaluation scales are an essential instrument for the registration and for the clinical monitoring of the modifies to the ocular tissues.
These scales are used to evaluate the gravity of a wide range of conditions, included those associated to the contact lenses.
On the other hand, the device is able to recognise and detect in a completely automatic way the loss area of meibomian glands. After taking the picture, the software only asks to indicate the area of the eyelid that you want to analyze, and then it detects all glands.
The dysfunction of the Meibomian Glands (MGD, Meibomian Gland Dysfunction) is caused by a chronic alteration of the sebaceous glands that are located inside of the eyelids.
The instrument has the possibility to be used in a portable way or like fixed instrument in your clinic, exploiting a support that you can insert inside the hole of the tonometer on the slit lamp.
