Thermal Pulsation Treatment Bringing Colors Back to the Eye

Shama Shaligram Soumya Nanaiah Rohit Shetty Ashwini Ranganath

This video demonstrates the use of LipiView in showing changes in tear film lipids before and after treatment with LipiFlow® measured on the International Color Unit scale.

Summary of Content
Currently there are limited diagnostic tests and treatment for dry eyes. A new addition to the armamentarium of instruments available to do the same are white light interferometry (Lipiview) and thermal pulsation treatment(LipiFlow). LipiView is an interferometer which objectively quantifies the lipid layer in International Color Units. LipiFlow increases the lipid content of tears by opening up blocked Meibomian glands and rejuvenates the tear film.
