PurposeTo measure the depth and area of the fornix in normal adults and patients with symblepharon.MethodsThe fornix depth of normal eyes (n=20) and patients with symblepharon (Stevens–Johnson syndrome, n=4) was measured at six locations in each eye using non-invasive, dull-edged stainless steel metric scale. Before and after conjunctival reconstruction surgery, the depths of fornix were also measured by the same method. The overall area was assessed from those fornix depth at six points… CONTINUE READING
