How to Determine the Cause of Dry Eyes

Consistent dry eyes can create a sensation of discomfort throughout your day-to-day. If you are experiencing regular dry and/or scratchy eyes then consider scheduling a test to find the root cause of your dry eyes.

At Envision Optical we provide a variety of tests using the latest technology to help our optometrist pinpoint what is causing your persistent dry eyes, including:

  • A thorough exam. We will examine the overall health of your eyes both past and present to find any
  • Ocular surface disease index (OSDI) patient symptom questionnaire
  • Tear analysis digital scan
  • Tear volume testing
  • Comprehensive biomicroscope assessment
  • Vital dye staining and photography
  • Assessment of the meibomian glands via infrared imaging

This array of dry eye tests give us an in-depth understanding of how and why your eyes are dry. These tests also allow us to accurately assess the best course of action to eliminate your dry eye symptoms and get back to feeling like your usual self.
