Doctor, my eyes feel scratchy, or watery. 
Can you help? 

Sure, we can. Let's start with the most basic test. We put a drop of yellow dye onto the eye, and look to see how thick and smooth the tear layer appears.

Which eye looks "dryer"?

A

B

Well, it is "A", of course. There are patches where there is no colour, and we see something called "staining". Patient "B" has a thick, smooth tear layer.  

At our clinic, we make it our mission to try to determine why a patient has poor tear quality.

Each cause is treated differently. 

Among the reasons are:

  • Medications

  • Diet

  • Tear Insufficiency

  • Allergy

  • Inflammatory Disease

  • Blepharitis

We would be happy to evaluate your

dry eye/ tear quality in our clinic. 

For patients who want to know about any of their risks before they become a problem, we encourage you to request an Integrated Eye Examination with Dietary Evaluation.
