How tear osmolarity affects lens wearConsidering that many CL patients are desensitized, it is critical we not only monitor their tear film and ocular surface for change, but we demonstrate stability or instability through measurable means. This creates trust, validates our recommendations, induces compliance, and generates positive outcomes.
Tear osmolarity: Dry eye's 'vital sign'Hyperosmolarity emerges as key mechanism in TFOS DEWS II pathophysiology report
Ocular surface disease limits surgical optionsPrepare your patient by assessing and treating the ocular surface
Hyperosmolarity of ocular surface may impact cataract surgery planningA recent study demonstrates the importance of evaluating osmolarity during cataract surgical planning in order to ensure that presurgical keratometry readings are not compromised by hyperosmolarity of the ocular surface.
Study finds hyperosmolarity of the ocular surface may impact cataract surgeryTearLab recently announced that preliminary results of the TearLab Cataract Study, which evaluated the relationship of a hyperosmolar tear film on keratometry readings.
Studies confirm tear osmolarity is central to OSDDoctors, researchers, and clinical studies have evaluated how tear osmolarity is impacted by a variety of conditions in vivo, in vitro, and in animal models. The conclusions show that tear osmolarity is an integral factor in the complex condition of ocular surface disease.
