Dry Eye Disease

Keratograph Dry Eye Testing

Dry eyes or dry eye syndrome (DES) is an ongoing condition with symptoms that include dryness, scratchiness and burning.  We take a personal approach to find out the root cause of your dry eye and create a treatment plan that matches the the severity level of the disease.

Our Focus on Research and Technology

At Premier Eye Associates we use state-of-the-art equipment and stay current on the best medical treatments and techniques.  After a comprehensive examination using the advanced diagnostic tools provided by the Keratograph, our doctors can more accurately assess the precise cause and severity of your dry eye and recommend the best course of treatment to address your specific problem.

meibomian gland imageOur OCULUS Keratograph is a high-resolution color camera equipped with intelligent software measuring ocular redness, tear production levels, and meibography (infrared scan of the upper and lower lids providing an x-ray like image of the glands inside of the eyelids).  It also calculates tear film stability by taking a video of the tear evaporation.  A picture of the lower eyelid measures the amount of tears the eye produces.  Our doctors can use this data to monitor the success of the dry eye treatment and measure the quality and stability of the eye's tear film.
