Allergan App for Dry Eye
 
 
 
 
Allergan recently released a new tool for smart devices that helps to quickly assess dry eye symptoms and measure their severity. The Dry Eye OSDI© Questionnaire allows you to administer the Ocular Surface Disease Index (OSDI©), a valid, reliable, 12-item, questionnaire. With a simple interface and instantaneous score calculation, this app makes gives you information that is vital for your eye care professional to initiate successful treatment of your dry eye symptoms. If you think you may have Chronic Dry Eye, take the OSDI© test in this app and schedule an appointment with your ophthalmologist or optometrist so you can show them your results. The information is kept private with optional password protection and the results are compiled into an easy-to-read report that can be saved, emailed, and printed for record keeping. Reports can even be saved and compared over time to see changes in OSDI© score.
