Tear Lab aids in the accurate and early detection of Dry Eye Disease. Doctors can quantitatively monitor disease severity and can intervene early in the disease process. This instrument helps doctors custom prescribe therapies that work for each individual, based on the their test results. Moreover, Tear Lab allows doctors to measure the success of prescribed treatments.
Tear Lab’s sophisticated lab on a chip technology tests a tiny tear sample to measure osmolarity, or the salt content in the tears. Your Osmolarity Number gives the doctor a meaningful measure of the health and stability of the protective tear film that covers the surface of your eyes. The number generated correlates with the severity of the disease.
