The eyeLABS Dry Eye Experience

As part of the now world-renowned eyeLABS Dry Eye Clinic assessment, your eyeLABS doctor will perform a series of evaluations to determine the likely cause of your dry eye. You’ll start by completing a Dry Eye lifestyle questionnaire, which is a brief assessment used to determine how your eyes feel on a daily basis.

If the questionnaire shows your symptoms are more than mild or are beginning to affect daily activities, your eye doctor will then schedule you for a tear film and gland evaluation. The LipiView® interferometer is the first device of its kind that enables the doctor to assess your tear film by capturing images that measure the thickness of the lipid (oil) component. This process is non-invasive and takes about five minutes.  Meibography and tear film dynamics will be measured to provide your doctor information needed to determine a clear cause to your condition.

Next is a closer look at what’s happening at the gland level. With the use of the Meibomian Gland EvaluatorTM your eyeLABS doctor can examine the quantity and quality of lipids (oils) being released from your glands.  Knowing what is causing your Dry Eye will help your doctor determine the best treatment option.
