KOWA DR-1a

Principle

  • The tear film is a thin layer approximately 100
    nm thick. By irradiating white light on the tear film
    surface, several interference patterns appear by the
    difference in the two specular reflection light paths
    obtained between the surface and the back of the
    lipid layer. An advanced optical system
    designed for the shape of the cornea makes it
    possible to observe the interference image in a
    wide area. By the principle of specular reflection,
    the break-up of the tear film can be observed in
    a non-invasive manner.

Principle
  • Observation of the tear film by light interference imaging

    The Kowa DR-1α enables you to observe changes
    in the interference color patterns spreading on the
    lipid layer and the break-up of the tear film. Also
    you can observe the tear film on contact lenses.

Principle

Data output is simple
