In a masked investigation, tear lipid layer structure and non-invasive break-up time (NIBUT) of both eyes of 40 normal subjects were assessed with the Keeler Tearscope after unilateral manual expression of meibomian fluid from the lower lid. The HIRCAL grid (modified keratometer mire) provided the additional measure of tear thinning time (TTT). Twenty(More)

We found that only 25% of the tendons were inserted in the conventional way, viz, into the base of the proximal phalanx, and confirmed that the course and insertion of the extensor pollicis brevis(More)
AIMS To determine the repeatability of measurement of the corneal sensation threshold using the Non-Contact Corneal Aesthesiometer (NCCA); to evaluate the effect of the air-jet diameter and stimulus duration on the threshold; and to compare the sensation thresholds found with the NCCA and with the Cochet-Bonnet Aesthesiometer (C-BA), on the same group of(More)
