PURPOSE To assess the effect of oral re-esterified omega-3 fatty acids on tear osmolarity, matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9), tear break-up time (TBUT), Ocular Surface Disease Index (OSDI), fluorescein corneal staining, Schirmer score, meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) stage and omega-3 index in subjects with dry eyes and confirmed MGD. METHODS This was(More)

• In Koch et al., anterior corneal measurements underestimated Total Corneal Astigmatism (TCA) by 0.22 D @ 180° and exceeded 0.50 D in 5% of eyes 1 • Selecting toric IOLs based on anterior corneal measurements alone could lead to overcorrection in eyes that have WTR astigmatism and undercorrection in eyes that have ATR astigmatism Failing to take into(More)
