What your eyes can tell you about your Arthritis

Dye Eye Disease – dryness, pain or a gritty feeling in the eyes and blurred vision –is a common eye-related symptom of rheumatoid arthritis.

The key to protecting your vision is an early and comprehensive diagnosis, so your doctor can offer a customized program to relieve the dry eye symptoms.

Results of a recent clinic study published in the December 2014 issue of the Corneal Journal suggest that tear film osmolarity testing is the most reliable tool to diagnose Dry Eye Disease in patients with RA.

The study, which included 74 subjects (58 women and 16 men) also reports that tear film osmolarity may also be a good marker to determine whether the signs and symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis have reduced or stopped, and if treatment needs to be adjusted.

NTEC offers advanced and innovative diagnostic testing, including TearLab Osmolarity, to measure salt and enzyme concentration of your tear film with extreme accuracy and precision. Speak to your health care provider or the person at our front desk to arrange a complete consultation.
