Using Your Tear Osmolarity Result Part I: Diagnosis
Of course, this test can't be used all alone. Dr. White, Dr. Kaye, and Dr. Schlegel will use the results along with the information they get from your history and from looking at your eyes to come to a conclusion. But if your osmolarity is above 308, the chances are good that you have some kind of dry eye!
The tear osmolarity test is fully FDA approved, and we are hopeful that it will be covered by most insurances in 2011.
Dry eye is one of the most common causes of eye problems, not only in Cleveland but all over the world. Our doctors at the main Skyvision Centers office in Westlake are on the leading edge of the technology involved in making this important diagnosis.
