Dry Eyes Q&A

Q: What happens at a dry eye exam?
A: To diagnose dry eye disease, the eye doctor can use a biomicroscope to examine whether there are plugged oil glands in the lid or any dry patches on the cornea present. A yellow stain called fluorescein can help us see how quickly the tears evaporate. We also look for eyelid issues like blepharitis (inflamed crusty lids) or Demodex mites which can worsen dry eye symptoms.

AMD Dark Adaptation
Dark Adaptation - AdaptDx Pro

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of blindness in adults. When caught early, vision loss can be prevented. Did you know age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is more common than glaucoma? Get tested to detect AMD early, before it takes its toll on your vision.

People with age-related macular degeneration (AMD) often do not know they have the disease during its early stages. They may dismiss early warning signs, like trouble seeing at night, as part of the normal aging process. Ignoring these symptoms only delays diagnosis, which can lead to more vision loss.

We are offering a new test that helps us diagnose AMD at a very early stage and monitor disease progression. If you are experiencing problems seeing at night, or it is becoming increasing difficult to read in dim light, talk to us about scheduling an AdaptDx [adapt-dee-ex] Pro test.

Patient Testimonials

The best dry eye care in my experience. The level of care from Dr. Della Porta and her staff is absolutely first rate. They take their time in looking into the causes of your dry eye through testing and evaluating the various conditions of your eyes, and only then do they work with you to set up a treatment regime with all therapies that are available. If you have dry eye, do not make the mistake I made by going to an ophthalmologist or optometrist first for care. You need to go to a dry eye center that specializes in dry eye care. And their is no better one that I can recommend than Dr. Della Porta.
