Importance of Diagnosis

In a prevalence study conducted with over 9000 patients:

61% of overall population with abnormal osmolarity

Of those that had abnormal osmolarity, 59% of the patients reported having at least three DED symptoms

  • Average osmolarity of patients with abnormal osmolarity (≥308 mOsm/L) or inter-eye difference (≥8 mOsm/L) = 318 mOsm/L

  • Average osmolarity of patients with normal osmolarity (≤308 mOsm/L) or inter-eye difference (≤8 mOsm/L)  = 297 mOsm/L

"The osmolarity test correlates better than any other test to tell us how severe the disease is and how well it’s responding to treatment.”

Abnormal osmolarity can effect pre-surgical keratometry measurements

Patients with abnormal osmolarity were defined, within the protocol, as osmolarity ≥ 316 mOsm/L

Can abnormal osmolarity impact surgical outcomes?

17%

17% of eyes with abnormal osmolarity had >1 D (diopter) of difference in keratometry cylinder values between two pre-surgical visits

10%

10% of eyes with abnormal osmolarity had >0.5 D (diopter) of change in calculated IOL power

Contact Lens Dropout
