We have the ability to measure tear osmolarity with the TearLab test, which helps us diagnose, treat, and monitor a patient’s dry eyes.   The Harman Eye Clinic is an Accredited Dry Eye Center, dedicated to providing the highest quality of dry eye care using advanced ophthalmic diagnostic techniques and treatments.

An important preparation for refractive surgery is to treat the condition known as Dry Eye Disease.  This is a common challenge for preoperative patients.  Thanks to new technology we can now treat dry eye in ways never before available. The latest in technology is called The TearLab. It measures a small sample of the patient’s tears to see how “dry” they really are. Our clinic is one of the first ophthalmology practices in the pacific northwest to offer this advanced diagnostic evaluation.

Treatment is prescribed based on the measurements from the TearLab. Treatments range from Omega 3 supplements, tear replacement drops, punctual plugs, anti- inflammatory drops, oral antibiotics and prescription strength artificial tears.
