86% of all dry eye patients have involvement of Meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD). MGD leads to rapid evaporation of your tears, thus causing dry eye syndrome.


The Lipiscan is a non-invasive technology to help doctors scan Meibomian glands and accurately diagnose MGD. Lipiscan has revolutionized the diagnosis of dry eyes caused by MGD.


Dry eye caused by MGD occurs when there is insufficient secretion of meibum, the oil substance, due to either physical blockage of the glands or the glands are not working properly themselves. Insufficient oil allows more rapid evaporation of your tears.
