Meibometer® MB 560

Interesting device to measure the lacrimal fluid's lipid content

meiboaugeLipids produced by the Meibomian glands keep the moisture of the tear fluid, thereby prevent the eyes from drying and keep them clear with comfortable vision. The typical dry eye problem is caused when the lipid production at the Meibomian glands is disrupted. If the tear film becomes destabilized and can break down quickly, creating dry spots on the surface of the eyes.The Meibometer® is the first and only measurement tool worldwide offering an interesting and unique approach to objectively quantify this deficiency.
