The lipiscan is a camera to capture a picture of your meibomian glands. The meibomian glands are the oil glands in your eyelids that make the oil portion of the tears. This part of the eye accounts for at least 85% of all dry eye disease! We started incorporating this imaging on every yearly exam for patients 18 and over. This is because we realized that you can begin to have permanent anatomy changes before you ever have symptoms of dry eye. We want to catch you as early on in the dry eye disease state as possible to have the best outcomes!
The oculus is a multifunction camera to give us details on what is causing your dry eye disease.

This machine helps us create a very personalized approach to your specific disease path to avoid unnecessary steps.
The Optos Daytona provides an ultra-widefield picture of your retina without dilating drops. If we find something unique in your retina or with your optic nerve, we can also use this camera to take a picture and monitor for changes over time. One great feature to having pictures of your retina is that it is an objective view of your eye. It is a picture you can carry forward to all of your future eye exams!
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
The OCT is a non-invasive camera that lets us look at the structure of the layers of your retina and thickness of your optic nerves. We use this testing for conditions such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy. Your primary care doctor may also want users to use this on you if you are on certain high-risk medications since these can change your vision. This very cool technology is also used by NASA for space exploration!
