Identify Dry Eye
An In-Office test to aid in Dry Eye diagnosis
Dry eye disease, or dysfunctional tear syndrome, is an extremely common condition that is often under diagnosed and affects 5-30% of the population ages 50 and over. (1)
InflammaDry® is the first and only, rapid, in-office test that detects MMP-9, an inflammatory marker that is consistently elevated in the tears of patients with dry eye disease. (2)
Commit to making the right diagnosis with an easy-to use, in-office, dry eye test that gives accurate results in just 10 minutes.
85% Sensitivity (3)
94% Specificity (3)
InflammaDry is the only rapid, in-office dry eye test that detects MMP-9, a biomarker for inflammation that is consistently elevated in the tears of dry eye patients. (2) All other dry eye tests measure tear production and stability.
InflammaDry recognizes elevated levels of MMP-9 to identify patients that may otherwise be missed with other dry eye testing methods.
