Eye Rx is uniquely qualified to diagnose and treat dry eye.
Many patients come to see their eye care provider because they are suffering from symptoms related to eye irritation. Dry eye is a treatable medical condition known as Keratitis Sicca.
Dry eye disease is present when your eyes don’t produce enough tears, or they produce poor quality tears. Tear testing is important to know the source of your dry eye.
You could be suffering from this medical condition is you have any of the following symptoms:
- Blurry vision
- Light Sensitivity
- Excessive tearing / watery eyes
- Tired eyes / eye fatigue
- Stringy mucus in or around the eyes
- Foreign body sensation
- Contact lens discomfort
- Scratchy, feeling of sand or grit in eye
A simple analysis of your tears will indicate the osmolarity (saltiness) of your tear. An imbalance in the tears can cause damage to the cells on the surface of the eye. When we analyze your tear composition, we can determine the cause of your issue, and treat it accordingly.
