Diagnostic Tests:

1) Corneal and Conjunctival Staining:

2) Tear break-up time (TBUT)

3) Schirmer's Test: A small paper strip with rulers printed along their length are placed inside the lower eyelids (inside the inferior conjunctival fornices) after the eyes are numbed with a topical anesthetic drop. The strips are removed after 5 minutes and the amount of tears produced in that time is read off of the strips (and measured in millimeters). Interpretations can vary but usually < 10mm of tear production in 5 minutes is suggestive of some form of dry eye.

4) TearLab: This in office test measures tear osmolarity. The test is a relatively painless and quick (seconds) and can be performed by an ophthalmic technician. Increased osmolarity indicates dry eye. A score over 300 mOsm/L or an intereye difference greater than 8 mOsm/L indicates dry eye.

5) LipiView: An interferometer is a noninvasive instrument that measures the amount of oil in the tear film. The measurements are obtained through images of the tear film that are captured over a 5 minute period.

6) Sjo:

7) InflammaDry
