Dry Eyes


Dry eye syndrome (DES) affects more than 40 million people in the United States. Dry eye disease is one of the most common reasons that people visit their eye care professional.

As an Accredited Dry Eye Center, the staff at Kelly Vision Center is dedicated to providing the highest quality of dry eye care by using advanced ophthalmic diagnostic techniques and treatments. One of the latest devices in dry eye technology is the TearLab Osmolarity System. By using the TearLab, Dr. Kelly can quickly and painlessly measure a small 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 gathers allows patients to understand their ‘level’ of disease. Your unique tear number will also allow your doctor to decipher the best means of treatment for you.

If you’ve been experiencing recurring dry eye symptoms including: itching, burning and discomfort, be sure to schedule a TearLab test with Dr. Kelly today.
