TearScience Inc. CEO and Co-Founder Tim Willis emphasized that his company was founded for a single reason: to be the evaporative dry eye expert, and to develop a system to identify, diagnose, and treat Meibomian Gland Dysfunction, the root cause behind 90% of dry eye cases. He introduced for the first time TearScience’s LipiView II. Ready for launch, it is the only diagnostic imaging device that accurately measures lipid layer thickness, and enables a view of the gland structure. Willis also shared positive results for TearScience’s LipiFlow procedure, which he declared as “the solution for MGD.”
