Dealing With Dry Eyes

Great River Eye Clinic offers TearLab technology to treat dry eyes.

Great River Eye Clinic Tear Lab Center


At Great River Eye Clinic, offering our patients advanced ophlalmic, optometric diagnostic techniques and treatment is something for which we continuously strive. One of our service lines includes the diagnosis and treatment of dry eye with the inclusion of the TearLab Osmolarity Test in our diagnostic analysis.

TearLab measures a small sample of the patient's tears to test for the level of dryness. Once determined, treatment is prescribed based on the results.

Dry eye is a condition in which a person doesn’t have enough quality tears to lubricate and nourish the eye.  These tears are necessary for maintaining the health of the front surface of the eye and for providing for clear vision.

With each blink of the eyelids, tears spread across the front surface of the eye, known as the cornea.  They provide lubrication, reduce the risk of eye infection, wash away foreign matter in the eye, and keep the surface of the eye smooth ad clear. 

Excess tears in the eyes flow into small drainage ducts in the inner corners of the eyelids, which drain into the back of the nose. 

Dry eyes can occur when tear production and drainage is not in balance.

Great River Eye Clinic is an Accredited Dry Eye Center. Our ophthalmic diagnostic techniques treat dry eye in ways never before available.
