TearLab®: Quick and Painless Dry Eye Test
About 40 million people in the US have dry eye disease, but 95% have not been diagnosed and treated. Could you be among them?

The symptoms of dry eye disease include stinging, burning, a scratchy sensation, sensitivity to light, tearing, tired eyes, difficulty wearing contact lenses, and blurred vision, often worsening at the end of the day or after focusing for a prolonged period on a nearby task.

It used to be more difficult and time-consuming to diagnose dry eye disease. Now, with a new test from TearLab®, it can be done painlessly in one visit.

If your eyes are dry, you may suffer more than just discomfort. Reduced tear production over a long period of time increases the risk of permanent damage and scarring to the front of the eye.

If your dry eyes are bothering you, make an appointment today.
