Dry Eye Syndrome can sometimes be diagnosed by your eye care provider with a thorough case history or with a dry eye questionnaire. Diagnostic tests
are usually still performed to confirm those findings. Test may include a thorough microscopic examination of the cornea with the use of special dyes,
a tear break up time (the amount of time before dry spots appear on the cornea), specialized tear strips or threads which measure tear production or a
tear analysis which measures the three main components and other things found in the tear layer. The tear film height is determined to evaluate tear volume.
