The Most Thorough Dry Eye Examination – Dry Eyes Testing Explained

What to expect at your dry eye exam! Dr. Allen shares what dry eye tests are done and what they mean for dry eye treatment! Learn more about dry eye treatments here

The dry eye tests explained in this video are part of the comprehensive dry eye evaluation we offer at our clinic. While not every dry eye test that exists is detailed in this video, most testing you may see during a dry eye examination have been featured.
In my opinion and experience, not all of the dry eye testing shown is required for proper dry eye diagnosis and treatment, but certainly helps with finding an ideal dry eye treatment and proper follow up.

Dry eye syndrome or “dry eyes” is in fact a very complex disease with many contributing factors at play. Many people may experience occasional dry eye symptoms throughout life but chronic dryness can eventually lead to eye pain and blurred vision.
