TearLab Accredited Dry Eye Center MedalThe Eye Associates is proud to announce that they have been certified by TearLab as an Accredited Dry Eye Center of Excellence. The doctors at The Eye Associates have extensive experience in the diagnosis and treatment of Dry Eye Disease, and being certified demonstrates our expertise and dedication to providing the highest quality of dry eye care using advanced ophthalmic diagnostic techniques and treatments.

One of the most common clinical challenges faced in eyecare is Dry Eye Disease. Characterized by irritated, scratchy, itchy eyes, dry eyes occur when eyes are not properly lubricated because of insufficient tear production, or unbalanced tear composition. Thanks to new technology, dry eyes can now be treated in ways never before available. One of the latest diagnostic tools is  The TearLab Osmolarity System, which measures tear osmolarity by taking a small sample of the patient’s tears to see how “dry” they really are.
