PURPOSE To observe and classify tear film lipid layer interference patterns in normal volunteers and dry eye patients and to investigate the relation between the lipid layer interference patterns in the dry eyes and the results of other dry eye examinations. METHODS Precorneal tear lipid layer interference patterns were observed at the central cornea in 25 eyes of 13 normal controls and 85 eyes of 48 dry eye patients. Observed patterns were classified in masked fashion by five physicians into… CONTINUE READING
