Question 2:

What is Dynamic Meibomian Imaging™ (DMI™)?


Dynamic Meibomian Imaging (DMI) employs two novel imaging technologies: dynamic illumination and adaptive transillumination. Each technology generates its own independent image of the glands which is then processed, displayed and combined to provide a more accurate visualization of meibomian gland structure. Using these images, the ophthalmologist or optometrist can detect structural change in the meibomian glands. As MGD progresses, DMI reveals gland truncation and dilation in moderate disease followed by gland atrophy and drop out in the most severe disease.
