Image-based quantitative analysis of tear film lipid layer thickness for meibomian gland evaluation
Image-based quantitative analysis of tear film lipid layer thickness for meibomian gland evaluation. Hyeonha Hwang et al (2017), BioMedical Engineering OnLine https://doi.org/10.1186/s12938-017-0426-8 Background Dry eye syndrome is one of the most common ocular diseases, and meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) is the leading cause of evaporative dry eye syndrome. When the tear film lipid layer becomes thin due to obstructive or hyposecretory meibomian gland dysfunction, the excessive evaporation of the aqueous layer can occur, and this causes evaporative dry eye syndrome. Thus, measuring the lipid layer thickness (LLT) is essential for accurate diagnosis and proper treatment of evaporative dry eye syndrome. Methods We used a white LED panel with a slit lamp microscope to obtain videos of the lipid layer interference patterns on the cornea. To quantitatively analyze the LLT from interference colors, we developed a novel algorithm that can automatically perform the following processes on an image frame: determining the radius of the iris, locating the center of the pupil, defining region of interest (ROI), tracking the ROI, compensating for the color of iris and illumination, and producing comprehensive analysis output. A group of dry eye syndrome patients with hyposecretory MGD, dry eye syndrome without MGD, hypersecretory MGD, and healthy volunteers were recruited. Their LLTs were analyzed and statistical information—mean and standard deviation, the relative frequency of LLT at each time point, and graphical LLT visualization—were produced. Results Using our algorithm, we processed the lipid layer interference pattern and automatically analyzed the LLT distribution of images from patients. The LLT of hyposecretory MGD was thinner (45.2 ± 11.6 nm) than that of dry eye syndrome without MGD (69.0 ± 9.4 nm) and healthy volunteers (68.3 ± 13.7 nm) while the LLT of hypersecretory MGD was thicker (93.5 ± 12.6 nm) than that of dry eye syndrome without MGD. Patients’ LLTs were statistically analyzed over time, visualized with 3D surface plots, and displayed using 3D scatter plots of image pixel data for comprehensive assessment. Conclusions We developed an image-based algorithm for quantitative measurement as well as statistical analysis of the LLT despite fluctuation and eye movement. This pilot study demonstrates that the quantitative LLT analysis of patients is consistent with the functions of meibomian glands clinically evaluated by an ophthalmologist. This approach is a significant step forward in developing a fully automated instrument for evaluating dry eye syndrome and for providing proper guidance of treatment.

Dry Eye Treatment: Lipiflow Procedure For Dry Eye
Lipiflow is a very comfortable and very well tolerated treatment for dry eye syndrome associated with Meibomian Gland Dysfunction. At The Dry Eye Group, we are at the forefront of dry eye treatment technology, and we offer Lipiflow to our patients, alongside other treatment options. http://dryeyegroup.com.au LipiFlow® is a new procedure designed to treat the root cause of Evaporative Dry Eye (blocked Meibomian glands). Opening and clearing these blocked glands can allow them to resume natural production of lipids (oils) needed for a healthy tear film. Some treatments attempt to add more liquid to your tears, but without the complex natural oil, tears continue to evaporate faster than produced. At the heart of the LipiFlow® Thermal Pulsation System is the Activator (eyepiece). The Activator uses patented, precisely controlled heat applied to the inner eyelid with adaptive pressure encouraging your body to restart the natural production of lipids (oils) needed for healthy tears. Its single-use design and built-in sensors ensure a safe, sterile treatment. The treatment is performed in our optometry clinics — and, in some cases, on the same day as your evaluation.

Evaluation of IPL and MGX on relieving DED signs and symptoms - Video Abstract 130706
Video abstract of Clinical Trial Report “Prospective evaluation of intense pulsed light and meibomian gland expression efficacy on relieving signs and symptoms of dry eye disease due to meibomian gland dysfunction” published in the open access journal Clinical Ophthalmology by authors Dell, Gaster, Barbarino, et al. Purpose: The aim of this study was to estimate the efficacy of intense pulsed light (IPL), followed by meibomian gland expression (MGX), for reducing the number and severity of signs and symptoms of dry eye disease (DED) secondary to meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD). Patients and methods: In a prospective study conducted in two sites, 40 subjects (80 eyes) with moderate to severe MGD were enrolled. Major inclusion criteria consisted of at least two of the following measures being compatible with DED in both eyes: tear breakup time (TBUT), meibomian gland score (MGS), corneal fluorescein staining (CFS), Standard Patient Evaluation of Eye Dryness (SPEED) questionnaire, and tear film osmolarity (TFO). Enrolled patients underwent four treatment sessions, 3 weeks apart. Each treatment included the administration of 10–15 pulses of IPL on the cheeks and nose, followed by MGX of the upper and lower eyelids. TBUT, MGS, CFS, SPEED, TFO, and lipid layer thickness (LLT) were measured at baseline (BL) and at 9, 12, and 15 weeks after BL. Results: Due to different staining methods used for TBUT measurements, TBUT and CFS were analyzed separately for each site. From BL to the final follow-up, the number of signs compatible with DED decreased from 3.3±0.1 to 1.4±0.1. TBUT improved by +93% (n=38; P,0.0001) and +425% (n=42; P,0.0001) for sites 1 and 2, respectively. SPEED, MGS, and CFS improved by −55% (n=80; P,0.0001), −36% (n=80; P,0.0001), and −58% (n=38; P,0.0001), respectively. In 20 eyes with abnormally elevated TFO at BL, TFO improved by −7% (n=20; P,0.005). LLT did not change (n=38; P=0.88). Conclusion: In subjects with moderate to severe MGD, IPL combined with MGX reduced the number and severity of symptoms and signs of DED. Except for LLT, all examined outcome measures significantly improved after 15 weeks. These results support the efficacy of IPL + MGX in relieving both signs and symptoms of DED secondary to MGD.

Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD): Here’s What You Need To Know
https://introwellness.com/eyes/meibomian-gland-dysfunction-mgd/ Meibomian gland dysfunction, also known as MGD, is a form of dry eye disease where the oily part of your tears is deficient and dysfunctional. Meibomian glands are the oil-producing glands located in both your upper and lower eyelids. These glands normally slowly release meibum (oil) into your tear film, forming the oily lipid layer of your tear film. This oil helps to stop the water in your tears from evaporating, thus helping to prevent dry eyes. Healthy meibum is a transparent, free-flowing, yellow oil that, when expressed, resembles a light cooking oil. In a healthy eye, gentle pressure with a finger or cotton swab for as little as 15 seconds in the central portion of your lower lid should produce a small amount of meibum from one or more of your glands. If a thickened or opaque oily substance is released from the glands, or if no oil is produced at all, your eye doctor will diagnosis you with meibomian gland dysfunction. Clinical signs include yellow-white caps on your glands, a foamy tear film, and rapid evaporation of your tears. Symptoms include redness on your eyelid margin, flaky debris or mattering, fluctuating vision, burning, and stinging. There are various methods to help manage and treat meibomian gland dysfunction: 1) Use a warm compress Unblock your glands by applying warm compresses to your eyelids for 10-15 minutes at least twice per day. Follow this up with a gentle massage of your glands with your fingertips or a cotton swab. 2) Try oral antibiotics Reduce the accumulation of bacterial within your meibomian glands through the use of prescription oral antibiotics. 3) Take dry eye supplements Increase your production of lipids (fats) with omega-3 fatty acids containing nutritional supplements, such as fish oil or flaxseed oil. 4) Consider new in-office procedures Talk to your eye doctor about in-office procedures that effectively remove blockages from your meibomian glands by gently heating and massaging your eyelids. If you’re experiencing eyelid redness and flaking, burning, and stinging, you may have meibomian gland dysfunction! For a proper diagnosis and treatment plan, talk to your local eye care professional today.

Clinical Overview of LipiFlow and LipiView system from TearScience - Dry Eye Theraphy
Eric Donnenfeld, MD and Marguerite McDonald, MD discuss the clinical benefits of the The TearScience System. The innovative TearScience technology changes the entire approach to treating Evaporative Dry Eye. This new, in-office system focuses on examining the tear film and treating Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD), a root cause of Evaporative Dry Eye. Dry Eye -- Largest Patient Segment within Eye Care Practices 38% of patients visiting their eye care professional suffer from Dry Eye. They spend $3.8 billion per year in the U.S. on symptom relief. There are an estimated 23 million sufferers over the age of 20 in the U.S. alone. Those with moderate to severe dry eye are experiencing great discomfort and are desperately seeking a new approach from traditional therapies, which only provide limited symptomatic relief. Eye care physicians are equally frustrated with the limited tools available to properly diagnose and treat dry eye.

LipiFlow Treatment Animation v2
There are two main forms of Dry Eye disease. Are you treating the right one? Meibomian Gland Dysfunction or Evaporative Dry Eye is a real disease that can affect vision and quality of life. If left untreated, the disease can worsen. Unfortunately, the underlying cause of dry eye disease has been difficult to identify and treat effectively -- leaving sufferers frustrated and unable to find long-term relief for dry eye symptoms. Now, with breakthrough technology, it's possible to treat a root cause of Evaporative Dry Eye: a blockage of eyelid glands called Meibomian Gland Dysfunction. These blocked eyelid glands result in a deficiency in the tear film oil, which is responsible for preventing the tears from evaporating too quickly. This condition results in dry eye discomfort that can affect the ability to lead a normal lifestyle. If you have blocked eyelid glands and Evaporative Dry Eye, there's a clinically-proven treatment performed in your doctor's office that has the potential to help reduce your dry eye discomfort by treating a root cause of the problem. As many as 86% of patients with Dry Eye symptoms have Meibomian Gland Dysfunction With the recent introduction of the LipiView®, physicians now have a new tool to observe the tear film on the surface of your eye using digital images. A LipiView image of the tear film can be captured during a non-invasive in-office exam that takes about 5 minutes.The tear film can be seen as an array of colors called specular observations that are relected when a controlled light source is directed towards the front surface of the eye. Effective treatment. With LipiFlow®, treat the cause of Evaporative Dry Eye Treatment of Evaporative Dry Eye involves relieving obstructions of blocked eyelid glands by applying a combination of localized heat therapy and pressure. Previous approaches, such as the use of warm compresses, can be inconvenient and of limited effectiveness. The LipiFlow® Thermal Pulsation System is used by your doctor to apply a heat and pressure therapy to adults that experience chronic cystic conditions of the eyelids including Meibomian Gland Dysfunction, also known as Evaporative Dry Eye. The LipiFlow® System is a significant technological shift in evaporative dry eye treatment, effectively relieving blockage of the eyelid glands during an in-office treatment. Opening the blocked eyelid glands allows the body to resume the natural production of lipids (oils) needed for the tear film.The LipiFlow® Thermal Pulsation System is a clinically-proven procedure that can be performed right in your doctor's office. In a clinical study, most patients (79%) who had the LipiFlow® treatment reported improvement of their dry eye symptoms within four weeks. The average total Meibomian gland score for patients who received a single LipiFlow® treatment more than doubled from 6.3 ± 3.5 at the baseline to 16.7 ± 8.7 at 4 weeks. The increase in the average total meibomian score indicates an increase in the number of glands secreting and a higher quality of gland secretions as compared to before LipiFlow treatment.

Intense Pulse Light and Meibomian Gland Expression
This patient gave us permission to post this video. This patient has significant meibomian gland dysfunction. The meibum or meibomian gland oil should come out like olive oil, not like toothpaste. You can see the oil is inspissated or clogged. With more IPL treatments, the oil will come out less like toothpaste and more like olive oil.

TearScience: Improving Dry Eye Outcomes (OIS@AAO 2016)
"Anterior Segment Company Showcase: TearScience" panel from Healthegy's OIS@AAO 2016: Presenter: Joseph Boorady, President & CEO – TearScience What if there was a therapy that could cut dry eye disease (DED) symptoms in half, improve tear secretion three-fold, and be sustainable for a year, all from one dose? “That therapy is already here, and it’s call LipiFlow,” said Joseph Boorady, president and chief executive officer of TearScience. The privately held company recently completed Series D financing and has a new management team. The Food and Drug Administration-approved device has been proven safe and since 2011 has been used on more than 150,000 eyes, Boorady said. The reason why the device has been so effective is meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD), which “represents the largest untapped market in DED,” he continued. With more than 30 million people with DED, each clinician’s office “sees an average of 8 to 10 cases of MGD daily.” Treating MGD is not new – the health of these glands and their relationship to a healthy ocular surface have been discussed as early as the mid-1940s. But warm compresses and manual expression had remained the stalwarts of therapy.

Blepharitis (/blɛfərˈaɪtɨs/ BLEF-ər-EYE-tis) is an eye condition characterized by chronic inflammation of the eyelid, the severity and time course of which can vary. Onset can be acute, resolving without treatment within 2–4 weeks (this can be greatly reduced with lid hygiene), but more generally is a long standing inflammation varying in severity. It may be classified as seborrhoeic, staphylococcal, mixed, posterior or meibomitis, or parasitic. This video is targeted to blind users.

Acyclovir is used for the treatment of herpes simplex virus infections, varicella zoster (chickenpox) and herpes zoster (shingles). Viral (HSV-1, HSV-2 and VZV) thymidine kinase converts acyclovir to the acyclovir monophosphate, which is then converted to the diphosphate by cellular guanylate kinase, and finally to the triphosphate by phosphoglycerate kinase, phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase, and pyruvate kinase. Acyclovir triphosphate competitively inhibits viral DNA polymerase and competes with the natural deoxyguanosine triphosphate, for incorporation into viral DNA. Once incorporated, aciclovir triphosphate inhibits DNA synthesis by acting as a chain terminator. One may consider acyclovir to be a prodrug as it is metabolized to more active compounds. Aciclovir is selective and low in cytotoxicity as the cellular thymidine kinase of normal, uninfected cells does not use acyclovir effectively as a substrate. Acyclovir may cause nephrotoxicity (crystallization of acyclovir within renal tubules, elevation of serum creatinine, transient), and neurotoxicity (coma, hallucinations, lethargy, seizures, tremors). Nephrotoxicity and neurotoxicity usually resolve after cessation of aciclovir therapy. However, there is no well-defined relationship between aciclovir concentrations in the blood and these adverse effects.

Intense Pulse Light for Dry Eye Disease First Published Paper 2003
Eye World News Magazine 2003 Toyos, R, Buffa C, Youngerman S no longer available on line now available at http://www.toyosclinic.com/eye-news/first-paper-ever-intense-pulse-light-ipl-dry-eye-disease-published-2005 Dry-eye syndrome is one of the most commonly diagnosed ophthalmic conditions in the general U.S. population. Estimated frequency of dry-eye syndrome ranges from 11% to 17% in the general U.S. populations. Certain autoimmune diseases, medications, environmental factors, smoking, diabetes, increased age and menopause have been associated with dry-eye syndrome. Common symptoms of dry-eye include dryness, grittiness, burning, ocular fatigue, redness, soreness, and foreign body sensation. Current treatment options for dry-eye patients include artificial tears, medicated ophthalmic drops, oral antibiotics and punctual occlusion. However, these therapies may not alleviate symptoms in some patients. Due to the considerable population affected by this condition, identifying novel and successful treatment options is critical for improving the quality of life for dry-eye patients. Dry-eye disease involves both inflammatory and vascular components. Common vascular and inflammatory dry-eye symptoms include ocular erythema and telangiectasia, which are also characteristics of both cutaneous an ocular rosacea. Several studies have identified successful pulsed light treatment of rosacea associated facial erythema and telangiectasia. We have observed similar results in rosacea patients treated with intense pulsed light for facial erythema and telangiectasia. We have also observed improvement of dry-eye symptoms in these laser treated patients. We present one such dry-eye case to demonstrate the prospective benefits of intense pulsed light therapy for dry-eye patients Case Study A 42-year-old Caucasian female initially presented to our clinic for a routine glaucoma evaluation in September 2003. The patient had a history of hypothyroidism controlled with oral medication. The patient presented with primary open angle glaucoma and had been prescribed latanoprost ophthalmic solution (Pfizer, N.Y.) for seven years. During initial examination, the intraocular pressure was 16 mm Hg in the right eye and 16 mm Hg in the left eye. The patient wore soft contact lenses with BCVA 20/20 in the right eye and 20/20 in the left eye. The patient reported “unbearable dry-eye symptoms” that were unresponsive to artificial tears and punctal plugs. Throughout the course of 13 months following the initial visit, the patient visited our office five times and exhibited repeated bilateral punctate epithelial erosions, allergic conjunctivitis, and Meibomian gland disorder. These conditions were unresponsive to treatment with artificial tears, cyclosporine ophthalmic emulsion 0.05% (Restasis, Allergan, Irvine, Calif.), brimonidine tartrate ophthalmic solution 0.15% (Alphagan, Allergan) epinastineHCl ophthalmic solution 0.05% (Inspire Pharmaceuticals, Durham, N.C.) and 30 days of oral doxycycline (100 mg, b.i.d.). The patient’s IOP remained below 16mm Hg for both eyes and BCVA with soft contact lenses remained 20/20 for both the right and left eyes for the entire 13 months. To note, the patient discontinued use of latanoprost ophthalmic solution (Xalatan, Pfizer) began travoprost ophthalmic solutions 0.004% (Travatan, Alcon, Fort Worth, Texas) five months after the initial visit. Treatment In October 2004, the patient returned to our office and exhibited bilateral punctate epithelial erosions and Meibomian gland disorder.Baseline Schirmer’s test with anesthesia results wer 8mm OD and 0 mm OS, and tear break up time was four seconds OD and five seconds OS. ...................................

New Optima IPL for Dry Eye Treatment Training Video - Toyos in Moscow
In 2001 when I first started lecturing about Intense Pulse Light, IPL, for Dry Eye Disease it was met with skepticism by doctors and by IPL technology companies. I remember one company that was based near my alma mater, Stanford University, flatly stated that we are an aesthetics company not an eye company. The only way that I had a company invest the time and money to improve the technology for Dry Eye was treating the President of that company, Roger Parkin, who had dry eye. Once he experienced the benefits of the treatment he knew his company should be in the space. The technology has advanced and so has the doctor’s thinking. Lumenis has created an evolved IPL technology that is perfect for DED treatment. I have covered the major advancements like the cooling tip, consistent pulse energy, control of parameters to best treat the lid margins, and the most important is the knowledge that the energy that you program is the energy delivered. Well now every company that has an IPL system is stating that their IPL system treats dry eye. I have investigated these systems and can tell you that they are first generation IPL systems more like what I used in 2001. Can you make this system work for a few people some of the time? The answer is yes. But as surgeons and patients would we be happy with a treatment that had below a 25% success rate. The answer is No. When I was lecturing at the Royal College of Ophthalmologists I saw one of these IPL systems. I had to chuckle until I saw that they had it combined with other technology that I have researched and patented. I think companies have learned their lesson and are listening to my research but I think they are taking the easy way out by just taking a snippet of my research and vomiting up a treatment. We have been working on Low Level Light Treatments for at home use by incorporating LED technology. We spent 7 years researching the system and found a technology that worked which we patented. Imagine my surprise when I see an LED mask for Dry Eye coupled with an IPL system. But like in the IPL scenario they used first generation technology (the wrong tech but I’m not here to give away secrets) that doesn’t work. One problem that I have is they are infringing on my patent. (legal is on it). But the bigger problem is that the technology they are putting out there will not work and gives the treatment a bad name. Just like poor IPL technology gives that treatment a bad name. Another trend is new doctors to IPL for Dry Eye inventing protocols without completing the research to test the effectiveness of their protocol. We have invested 17 years of time and research to perfect the protocol. We have treated thousands of patients with various skin types and nationalities and presented and published our work to insure outcomes without complications. I have had the honor of training doctors throughout the world. I am excited to see these doctors have replicated the results with the Optima technology and our protocols. So I say to doctors and patients is buyer beware. Do your research. Find the doctors that are utilizing the best technologies and the tested protocols. Not all IPL and The Q systems are the same.

How to Kill Yeast Infection Naturally Fast - Vaginal Yeast Infection Home Remedies
How to Kill Yeast Infection Naturally Fast - Vaginal Yeast Infection Home Remedies. Find in this video natural ways to cure yeast infection. Candida yeast infections are caused by the fungus called candida albicans, which we all have in our organism. In ideal conditions, the yeast infection is kept under control by the so-called good bacteria. The problems arise when our immunity drops; that’s when the number of these fungi increases, and soon afterwards the annoying symptoms appear. Glucose and fructose are sugars which enable the fungi to multiply, and it’s very important to limit the intake of carbs, which contains these sugars. Eliminating these carbs shall be supplemented, by increased intake of healthy natural fats. If you suspect you have candida yeast infection, you can help yourself and eliminate the nasty infection, with this simple but effective drink. All you need to prepare it, is high quality organic apple cider vinegar. Mix one tablespoon of organic apple cider vinegar in a glass of water, and drink this solution before every meal, or at least twice a day on an empty stomach. It stops the yeast infection from multiplying fast and efficient. Research shows that the acids and enzymes, which apple cider vinegar abounds in, help eliminate the excess candida yeast infection. Just remember that, your symptoms might get worse for the first few days, when you start drinking this solution. It’s normal to experience this, when you’re treating candida because, the yeast is rapidly dying off. You might also notice headache, and some clouded thinking for a few days, but the symptoms should clear quickly afterwards. Thanks for watching the video!

Malaria Prevention (1967) US Army Training Film; Defense Against Anopheles Mosquitoes
Malaria Prevention in 1967. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malaria Malaria is a mosquito-borne infectious disease affecting humans and other animals caused by parasitic protozoans (a group of single-celled microorganisms) belonging to the Plasmodium type.[2] Malaria causes symptoms that typically include fever, tiredness, vomiting, and headaches.[1] In severe cases it can cause yellow skin, seizures, coma, or death.[1] Symptoms usually begin ten to fifteen days after being bitten.[2] If not properly treated, people may have recurrences of the disease months later.[2] In those who have recently survived an infection, reinfection usually causes milder symptoms.[1] This partial resistance disappears over months to years if the person has no continuing exposure to malaria.[1] The disease is most commonly transmitted by an infected female Anopheles mosquito.[2] The mosquito bite introduces the parasites from the mosquito's saliva into a person's blood.[2] The parasites travel to the liver where they mature and reproduce.[1] Five species of Plasmodium can infect and be spread by humans.[1] Most deaths are caused by P. falciparum because P. vivax, P. ovale, and P. malariae generally cause a milder form of malaria.[1][2] The species P. knowlesi rarely causes disease in humans.[2] Malaria is typically diagnosed by the microscopic examination of blood using blood films, or with antigen-based rapid diagnostic tests.[1] Methods that use the polymerase chain reaction to detect the parasite's DNA have been developed, but are not widely used in areas where malaria is common due to their cost and complexity.[5] The risk of disease can be reduced by preventing mosquito bites through the use of mosquito nets and insect repellents, or with mosquito control measures such as spraying insecticides and draining standing water.[1] Several medications are available to prevent malaria in travellers to areas where the disease is common.[2] Occasional doses of the combination medication sulfadoxine/pyrimethamine are recommended in infants and after the first trimester of pregnancy in areas with high rates of malaria.[2] Despite a need, no effective vaccine exists, although efforts to develop one are ongoing.[2] The recommended treatment for malaria is a combination of antimalarial medications that includes an artemisinin.[1][2] The second medication may be either mefloquine, lumefantrine, or sulfadoxine/pyrimethamine.[6] Quinine along with doxycycline may be used if an artemisinin is not available.[6] It is recommended that in areas where the disease is common, malaria is confirmed if possible before treatment is started due to concerns of increasing drug resistance.[2] Resistance among the parasites has developed to several antimalarial medications; for example, chloroquine-resistant P. falciparum has spread to most malarial areas, and resistance to artemisinin has become a problem in some parts of Southeast Asia.[2] The disease is widespread in the tropical and subtropical regions that exist in a broad band around the equator.[1] This includes much of Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, and Latin America.[2] In 2016, there were 216 million cases of malaria worldwide resulting in an estimated 731,000 deaths.[3][4] Approximately 90% of both cases and deaths occurred in Africa.[7] Rates of disease have decreased from 2000 to 2015 by 37%,[7] but increased from 2014 during which there were 198 million cases.[8] Malaria is commonly associated with poverty and has a major negative effect on economic development.[9][10] In Africa, it is estimated to result in losses of US$12 billion a year due to increased healthcare costs, lost ability to work, and negative effects on tourism.[11]
