The Chicago Dry Eye Center of Excellence, PC, a division of Advanced Eye Care Professionals , was formed to offer patients who suffer from dry eye disease ( DED) the latest in dry eye testing, diagnosis, and treatment.

2.  Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to complete an ocular surface disease index ( OSDI).

3.  Please bring any topical artificial tears or medications, list of systemic medications, contact lenses, and solutions you have been using to your appointment.

4.  Careful review of your medical and ocular history and the following tests will be completed:
a. TearLab testing which evaluates tear osmolarity.

d. Schirmer’s testing to assess aqueous volume.

e. Careful assessment of the lids and eyelashes and meibography to determine if meibomian gland disease is present.

Once all testing is complete, a diagnosis and classification of severity of disease can be made and a custom treatment program established.
The Oculus Keratograph 5M is an advanced corneal topographer with a built in color camera for external imaging. The Oculus Keratograph 5M allows our doctors to examine the meibomian glands, measure the non-invasive tear break up time and tear meniscus height, and evaluate the lipid layer of the tear film. Upon completion of all testing, the patient will receive a copy of their JENVIS Dry Eye Report with a specific treatment plan.
