Achieving physiologic restoration in dry eyeTear osmolarity testing provides clinicians the opportunity to detect disease and select treatments to restore ocular surface health.
Dry eye diagnostic shows early promise, points to influential factors
Dry eye diagnostic shows early promise, points to influential factorsThis multi-assay test shows high sensitivity and predictive value, which can help distinguish inflammatory dry eye from other types of the condition.
How to manage cataracts with ocular surface diseaseOcular surface disease, including dry eye disease, is common in patients undergoing cataract surgery. It must be treated in order to optimise the ocular surface prior to surgery, and close follow-up in the postoperative period is important.
Point-of-care testing may improve accuracy of dry eye diagnosisJoseph Tauber, MD, offers a critical appraisal of the role of available point-of-care tests for evaluating dry eye.
Targeted approach provides relief for refractory dry eye symptomsTreatment based on the findings of a thorough history, appropriate testing, and clinical exam can be successful for bringing relief to many problem dry eye patients.
Addressing punctal occlusion, tear osmolarity correlationPatients with elevated tear osmolarity who underwent punctal occlusion showed rapid improvement in tear osmolarity and other features of dry eye disease.
