Sjö Diagnostic Test

Uncover a potential systemic cause of dry eye before it takes hold.

Sjö is a diagnostic test that combines traditional and novel, proprietary biomarkers to create an advanced diagnostic panel for the early detection of Sjögren’s syndrome in your patients.

The early symptoms of Sjögren’s syndrome commonly present as routine dry eye.1
Sjögren’s syndrome affects up to 4 million people in the U.S.; many of whom are undiagnosed.1,2

Your patients’ dry eye symptoms may be rooted in a progressive autoimmune disease.

  • Sjögren’s syndrome is a serious autoimmune disease that causes damage to the exocrine glands, which are responsible for producing moisture1,2,3
  • There is an average delay of several years in receiving an accurate diagnosis2
  • Early diagnosis can result in patients being monitored for organ-specific manifestations, general symptoms, associated autoimmune diseases and malignancies.
