Southwestern Pennsylvania Eye Center has acquired the TearLab Osmolarity system

 

Southwestern Pennsylvania Eye Center has acquired the TearLab Osmolarity system which is the latest technology in diagnosing dry eye disease. Dry eye disease is a chronic disorder occurring when the eyes do not produce the right quantity or quality of tears. If left untreated, chronic dry eyes can lead to corneal damage and vision impairment. Millions of people are affected by dry eyes. A patient with chronic dry eye suffers from a compromised tear film quality or quantity leading to increased rates of tear evaporation resulting in a more concentrated tear film or increased osmolarity. The TearLab Osmolarity system can measure your tear film osmolarity in 20 seconds. This gives the doctor a dry eye number and helps tailor a specific treatment plan for you. This is the first test to accurately quantify dry eyes. We are proud to provide this new technology to our patients and help better diagnose and treat chronic dry eyes.
