WHY DO WE TEST FOR OSMOLARITY?

Osmolarity is the amount of saltiness in your tears. As osmolarity in your tears increase, ocular surface cells become damaged. In fact, dry eye disease occurs when your eyes do not produce enough tears or produce poor quality tears. That’s why it’s essential to get your tears analyzed by an eye doctor. At DAVIES EYE CENTER, Dr. Davies can properly diagnose if you have dry eye disease and treat it appropriately by taking an amount of tear fluid no larger than the period at the end of this sentence. Dr. Davies has the Tearlab Osmolarity Tracker to help you track your treatment progress at each visit. For more information on Dry Eye Disease visit: https://www.tearlab.com/patients.htm
