The Eye Associates is proud to announce that they have been named an “Accredited Dry Eye Center”. Dry eye disease is a multi-factorial eye disease that affects an estimated 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 care professional.
“The increasing prevalence of dry eye disease is precisely why The Eye Associates became certified as an Accredited Dry Eye Center. What this means to patients is that The Eye Associates is dedicated to providing the highest quality of dry eye care by using the most advanced ophthalmic diagnostic techniques and treatments,” commented Dr Richard Hector, a Fellowship Trained Dry Eye Specialist at The Eye Associates.
One of the latest devices in dry eye technology is the TearLab Osmolarity System. The Eye Associates is one of a few in the area to use this test to painlessly measure a small sample of a patient’s tears in order to determine how dry the eyes 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 gathers allows the doctor and patient to understand their ‘level’ of disease. This allows The Eye Associates to customize dry eye treatment for each patient. If you’ve been experiencing recurring dry eye symptoms including: itching, burning, discomfort, and even excess watering, schedule a TearLab test and Dry Eye Evaluation at The Eye Associates by calling 941-792-2020 or Toll Free 866-865-2020.
