Me-Check - Screening of the dry eye syndrome

Project description

A simple device for detecting dry eye syndrome within minutes

Tears help prevent dryness of the eyes, protecting them against external irritants and enabling us to see clearly. When tears are inadequate or of poor quality, they fail to lubricate the eyes, leading to a condition known as dry eye syndrome. The EU-funded Me-Check project has developed an innovative device that can detect dry eye syndrome within 3 minutes. The device is easy to use and does not require expertise on dry eye pathology. Instead, specialised software takes into account certain parameters to diagnose the pathology level. Considering that more than 35 % of the population are affected by dry eye syndrome, the Me-Check device has the potential to benefit patients through prompt treatment.
