Eye Dryness Test

TearLab_MG_1594-2_3rsG

 

The Dry Eye Syndrome is a disease in which there is an alteration of the composition of the tear and a greater instability of the lacrimal layer.

The Lacrimal Osmolarity Test allows us to measure the degree of salinity of the tear, which is indicative of the stability of the lacrimal layer, so we can objectively determine the degree of Ocular Dryness allowing us to make an early diagnosis and also assess the effect of prescribed medications by our ophthalmologists.

To obtain this value we use a microchip coupled to a meter that collects a small amount of tear at the edge of the eyelid, this meter is placed in a reader and seconds later we obtain the specific value of the osmolarity of that tear sample.
