DryEye Rescue recently announced it has been chosen as the sole distributor of InflammaDry Dry Eye Test in the United States.1

InflammaDry is a diagnostic test that detects elevated levels of MMP-9, an inflammatory marker consistently found in the tears of patients with dry eye disease, taken from the inside lining of the lower eyelid.

According to DryEye Rescue, the benefits of the test include its rapid results, ease of use, non-invasive, and the only in-office CLIA-waived test.

Originally manufactured by QuidelOrtho, the company stated it has confidence in the company taking over the distribution process. "With DryEye Rescue supporting the distribution efforts on behalf of QuidelOrtho, you can expect even greater efficiency, reliability, and support in acquiring your InflammaDry. DryEye Rescue shares our dedication to providing top-tier service and support to eye care professionals within the ophthalmic industry," said Bryan Smith, GM of Eye Health at QuidelOrtho.

DryEye Rescue is a platform where doctors can shop for products to give patients “specialized dry eye care.” Products include eye drops, vitamins, and contact lens solutions.
