TearLab gets FDA nod for home use of dry eye test

(Reuters) – TearLab Corp said health regulators allowed home use of its device to diagnose dry eye condition, sending the medical device maker’s shares up as much as 80 percent to their highest in eight months.

Please issue a correction. The test was CLIA-waived for professional office use, not home.
