About Dry Eye Disease

Tears are vital for ocular health. When the natural tears are lacking in quantity or quality, they do not provide adequate lubrication and protection to the ocular surface, which can cause serious health issues such as dry eye disease. The quality or quantity of the natural tear film is often affected by blockages in the meibomian glands in the eyelids. When the tear film does not properly form because of blocked glands, dry eye symptoms can progress, and this often leads to dry eye disease.

High-Quality Diagnostic Tools

With a commitment to our mission to bring complete relief to dry eye and ocular surface disease patients worldwide, the first step to attaining this goal is through dry eye diagnosis. I-MED Pharma’s leading-edge diagnostic tools will help you to quickly and effectively assess your patients’ tear film and ocular surface.

I-PEN®Tear Osmolarity System

Osmolarity testing is the most objective way of diagnosing and measuring dry eye disease, and it is the single best marker of disease severity. I-MED Pharma is pleased to offer you the I-PEN®, which when used in conjunction with the single-use-sensors, quickly detects and measures the elevated tear film osmolarity levels associated with marginal, mild, moderate, and severe dry eye disease.

This solid state, electronic, diagnostic device provides you with quantitative measurements of osmolarity (the concentration of dissolved salts in solution) of human tears.

The I-PEN® is used in conjunction with the single-use sensors (SUS). The single-use sensors are individually wrapped,with 50 sensors per box. The I-PEN® is for professional in-vivo diagnostic use only.



An important step in diagnosing aqueous deficient dry eye syndrome is performing a quantitative tear function test. The SMTube® is a strip meniscometry test used to measure tear volume in your patients. This is a non-invasive test where tear volume is quantified within five seconds, with no anaesthetic required. Replace the Schirmer’s test in your practice and go from five minutes to five seconds with accurate and reliable results!
