Experience the iPen Difference For Yourself
iPen Osmolarity Testing
iPen is an accurate and objective test for diagnosing Dry Eye Disease. iPen generates an Osmolarity number, which provides significant information to your Doctor. With its objective, quantitative endpoint, iPen enables your Doctor to monitor your response to treatment. The test is fast, easy, and accurate - requiring only 50-nanoliters of tear for analysis - a sample smaller than the period at the end of this sentence. Osmolarity is the accepted gold standard for objectively diagnosing Dry Eye Disease. Essentially, osmolarity gives doctors a meaningful measure of the health and stability of the protective tear film that covers the surface of the eye.
Corneal topography is a non-invasive medical imaging technique for mapping the surface curvature of the cornea. This technology allows for precise contact lens fits, screening for irregular shaped corneas, and improving refraction accuracy for glasses prescriptions. Corneal topography extends the measurement range from the four points a few millimeters apart, that is offered by keratometry, to a grid of thousands of points covering the entire cornea. Since the cornea is normally responsible for some 70% of the eye's refractive power, its topography is of critical importance in determining the quality of vision. The three-dimensional map is therefore a valuable aid to the examining optometrist and can assist in the diagnosis and treatment of a number of conditions; in planning refractive surgery such as LASIK and evaluation of its results; or in assessing the fit of contact lenses.
Digital Retinal Imaging & OCT Scans
We use cutting-edge digital imaging technology to assess your eyes. Many eye diseases, if detected at an early stage, can be treated successfully without total loss of vision. Your retinal Images will be stored electronically. This gives the eye doctor a permanent record of the condition and state of your retina. This is very important in assisting your Optometrist to detect and measure any changes to your retina each time you get your eyes examined, as many eye conditions, such as glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration are diagnosed by detecting changes over time. The advantages of digital imaging include:
- Quick, safe, non-invasive and painless
- Provides detailed images of your retina and sub-surface of your eyes
- Provides instant, direct imaging of the form and structure of eye tissue
- Image resolution is extremely high quality
- Uses eye-safe near-infra-red light
- No patient prep required
