Advanced Dry Eye Testing
The LipiView® Ocular Surface Inferometer is an advanced imaging technology used to evaluate the layers of the tear film, the meibomian glands and your unique blinking patterns. During your dry eye examination, we will use perform a LipiView® Analysis to help determine if you have any imbalances in your tear film and determine which treatment options you may be a good candidate for.
The LipiView® Analysis is one important testing component included during your full, dry eye examination. Both your dry eye examination and the LipiView imaging will be billed to your medical insurance.
TearLab® Osmolartiy Test
The osmolarity levels (saltiness) of your tears can help diagnose dry eye disease and determine the severity of dry eye you have. The TearLab® Osmolarity System is used during your exam to determine your Osmolarity Score. A small, 50 nanoliter sample of your tears is analyzed by your doctor to determine your Osmolarity Score, which may range from 280 to 400. This quantifiable number is an indication of the severity of your dry eye and is a benchmark to track the effectiveness of treatments.
