Accurate and Easy to Use
Amcon Dry Eye Test Strips are designed to be not only accurate but easy to use. No shaking is required since the strip is designed to hold only 1 µL of fluid. The same small amount of fluorescein is applied to the eye with each strip. DET proves to be very user-friendly.
Invented by an Optometrist
The Dry Eye Test was invented by Dr. Donald R. Korb, a Boston optometrist , who is internationally recognized for his invention of contact lens designs.
Dr. Korb's name is synonymous with two of these designs: the lid attachment method of fitting rigid lenses (the Korb technique) and the first membrane soft extended wear contact lens, the CSI lens. He is currently the President and Technical Director for Ocular Research of Boston (ORB), a company he founded in 1987, whose primary pursuit is the development of products for the treatment of dry eye and dry skin.
Dr. Korb has a long history of discoveries documented by 24 US patents in the areas of ocular diagnostic equipment, contact lens polymers, contact lens design, and ocular drugs and formulations.
