Dry Eye Q&A with Dr. Bowser & Dr. Vennard

What is the examination like to determine if someone has dry eyes?

A large part of the examination is finding out what the patient is experiencing and determining the type of dry eye causing the symptoms. We examine the surface of the eye under a microscope to look at the quantity and the quality of the tear film. Additionally, we examine the eyelids and the glands inside the eyelids to insure they are healthy.
