A Comprehensive Dry Eye Evaluation with Ellevate

If severe and persistent dry eyes are causing you problems, then undergoing our dry eye evaluation can help you get a specialist’s opinion. Our approach when conducting dry eye evaluations is:

  • Well-aware of how appropriate testing and examination is necessary for formulating customized solutions, we carry out a comprehensive eye exam. This eye-exam includes an overview of your general health and your eye health. Drawing upon this information, Dr. Jayaram diagnoses the root cause of your dry eyes.
  • By using a Schirmer test, Dr. Jayaram measures your tear production. This test includes placing blotting stripes under your lower eyelids, for measuring the amount of strip soaked with your tears.
  • Not leaving matters indefinite, Dr. Jayaram uses special dyes in eye drops to determine your eyes’ surface condition. In this process, she looks for any staining patterns on the corneas and evaluates how long it takes for your tears to evaporate.

So, choose premium quality service by getting an appointment with us at EllevateMD.
