A full assessment of the ocular surface
through a combination of tests for diagnosis
of dry eye, from tear break up time to the tear
volume production test.

ICP Dry Eye analysis

TEARVET-A is an instrument available to veterinary ophthalmologists to evaluate the composition and stability of the Precorneal Tear Film (PTF).
It allows to better evaluate PTF qualitative deficiencies and make an accurate diagnosis of evaporative Dry Eye Disease (DED) due to imbalance of the three main PTF components:

  • Lipids
  • Aqueous
  • Mucins

Thanks to TEARVET-A it is possible to identify the type of DED, determine which deficient layer is affected and select a specific treatment.

LIST OF AVAILABLE EXAMS

INTERFEROMETRY

The Tearvet-A can evaluate the quantity and quality of the lipid component on the tear film.
 The device highlights the lipid layer and the user can evaluate the quality and the thickness.

TEAR MENISCUS

The thickness of the tear meniscus that is observed on the eyelid margins provides useful information on the tear volume. The tear meniscus can be examined considering its height, regularity and shape.

NIBUT

The stability of the mucin layer and the whole tear film is assessed through the study of the break up time (BUT) or non-invasive break up time (NIBUT), by using the Placido cone projected onto the cornea.
