Buffering in human tears: pH responses to acid and base challenge.

Abstract

The buffering capacity of tears collected from six young, healthy subjects was assessed using a microtitration technique. Each subject provided, on six separate occasions, about 100 microliter of tears, collected in small amounts and with minimal mechanical stimulation over several hours. The pH of the total stirred pool of tears from each subject was… (More)
