Itchy, irritated eyes are among the most common symptoms of Dry Eye Disease. However, these are also common to ocular (eye) allergies. Knowing the root cause is crucial to your diagnosis and treatment.
Dry Eye Institutes of America™ doctors perform thorough allergy testing using the advanced Doctor’s Allergy Formula. It is specifically designed to accurately pinpoint whether your symptoms are allergy related, Dry Eye related, or both. What makes this testing unique is that it uses the surface of your skin to test for ocular allergies. The test is non-invasive and no needles are required. It takes only 3 minutes to administer and is performed in the office.
This testing allows our doctors to identify more than 60 common and regionally specific environmental allergens. Once the test is complete, results are available in just 20 minutes.
