PURPOSE Tear cytokines and matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) can be extracted from the Schirmer strip. This study examined the extracted levels of tear cytokines and MMPs from Schirmer strips and potential correlation with Schirmer's test, tear breakup time (TBUT), tear osmolarity, and ocular surface disease index (OSDI). METHODS Thirty healthy volunteers(More)
PURPOSE The Schirmer's test is commonly used in the clinic for the diagnosis of dry eye disease by measuring tear volume. This report describes a procedure which can be used to recover tears from the Schirmer strip for the measurement of multiple tear cytokines as well as matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) by Luminex technology. METHODS Cytokine and MMP(More)
