You should be prepared to provide as much information as possible. The good news is that talking to your eye doctor about dry eye just got easier! The Dry Eye Ocular Surface Disease Index (OSDI©) Questionnaire is used by doctors to help assess Chronic Dry Eye (CDE) disease. Before your appointment, take the Dry Eye OSDI© and bring your results to show your eye doctor.
If your eye doctor’s office also has an office technician (“tech”), you should provide the above information to the tech as well. In fact, make sure you give this information to both the tech and the eye doctor.
Show your results to your eye doctor.
