PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to compare the agreement within and between examiners when evaluating real-time and digital photographs of TearScope Plus tear film interference patterns. We also evaluated between-examiner agreement of noninvasive digital tear break-up time (NITBUT) using the TearScope, the relation between NITBUT and tear film interference patterns, and the relation between NITBUT and tear break-up time (TBUT). METHODS Forty nondry eye patients were seen for digital… CONTINUE READING
