PURPOSE To investigate the effect of non-invasive tear stability assessment with forced eye opening on the lower tear meniscus. METHODS Twenty-three eyes of 23 patients with aqueous-deficient dry eye and 23 eyes of 23 normal subjects were enrolled. All subjects underwent imaging with a Keratograph 5M equipped with a modified tear film scanning function. Lower tear meniscus images were captured, and tear meniscus height (TMH) was measured with an integrated ruler before and after non-invasive… CONTINUE READING
