Tear Lab Accreditation
Matossian Eye Associates is proud to be recognized as one of the region's few accredited Dry Eye Centers of Excellence by Tear Lab. We at MEA are dedicated to providing the most customized treatments using the most advanced diagnostic techniques for the treatment of ocular surface disease.
It has been estimated that more than 5 million people in the United States suffer from symptoms of moderate to severe dry eye.(1) These patients go from doctor to doctor seeking help with little or no satisfaction. Tear Osmolarity testing, a painless measurement of the tear film that only takes a few seconds, gives our doctors the information needed to determine the severity of the condition. This provides us with the needed data to design the most beneficial treatment plan for each patient.
