Quidel InflammaDry®
Dry eye disease may require an extensive treatment plan and continuous therapy.
 
InflammaDry is a diagnostic test that can be performed in your eye doctor’s office to test your tears for the presence of inflammation. Inflammation may increase as dry eye progresses into a chronic condition, and if left untreated, can potentially damage the cells on the surface of your eye.18 By using the InflammaDry test to determine if there is an above normal level of inflammation on the surface of your eye, your eye doctor can determine the best and most appropriate dry eye treatment plan for you.

Various dry eye disease treatment plans are available, based on the discretion of your eye doctor. Typical treatment options may include a combination of artificial tears, omega-3 supplements, tear duct plugs, or anti-inflammatory therapies

Using the lnflammaDry test to determine if inflammation is a factor in your dry eye helps guide our approach to your treatment. Patients who test positive with the InflammaDry test have confirmed inflammation and may benefit from anti-inflammatory therapy. Over time, as inflammation is reduced by anti-inflammatory therapy, dry eye symptoms may reduce and the overall health of the eye may improve.

To perform the InflammaDry test, tears are collected from your lower eyelids. Each eye requires the use of a separate InflammaDry test. A small, soft piece of fabric will be gently dabbed along your lower eyelid to collect tears, very similar to the way a paper towel absorbs liquid from a surface. The tear collection process takes less than a minute and is not painful. Once the tear sample is collected, the InflammaDry test is activated and results are provided before you leave your doctor's office. A positive InflammaDry test result indicates that there is a significant amount of inflammation on the surface of the eye.
