Dry Eye disease has multiple causes and affects 25 million people in the United States alone. In fact, dry eye disease is one of the most common reasons that people visit their eye doctor.
As a TearLab Accredited Dry Eye Center, Atlee Gleaton Eye Care is dedicated to providing the highest quality of dry eye care by using advanced diagnostic techniques. One of the latest devices in dry eye technology is the TearLab Osmolarity System and we are the first practice in Central Maine to provide this exciting breakthough to our patients. By using the TearLab system, our staff can quickly and painlessly measure a sample of a patient’s tears to determine how dry they truly are.
In fact, the TearLab is the first objective and quantitative test for diagnosing and managing dry eye patients. Using just a nanoliter of tear fluid, the osmolarity data that the TearLab measures allows our doctors to determine what treatment is best for each patient.
If you have been experiencing recurring dry eye symptoms including: burning, tearing, and a gritty feeling in the eyes, be sure to schedule for an evaluation today.
