If you obtained a score under or equal to 13, you are within normal results.

If you obtained a score between 13 and 22, you have a mild or moderate dry eye syndrome.

If you obtained a score between 24 and 50, you have a moderate or severe dry eyes syndrome.

If you obtained a score over 50, you have a severe dry eye syndrome.

We advise you to be seen by an ophthalmologist if you obtained a result over 20 points in the OSDI Test.
