Diagnosis of dry eye can be accomplished through either a comprehensive eye examination or a problem-focused medical visit. Information obtained through patient history and our dry eye questionnaire can help gauge the severity of your symptoms while a microscopic view of your eyes will be used to determine the clinical level of your condition.
Further testing will be performed at your initial dry eye evaluation and monitored at regular visits to ensure improvement of symptoms and ocular health. We begin by performing a tear film osmolarity reading with our TearLab instrument. This painless test helps to quantify the severity of your dry eye and can be used at future visits to monitor the results of your treatment.
