The thin layer of tears covering the ocular surface are a complex body fluid containing thousands of molecules of varied form and function of several origins. In this review, we have discussed some key issues in the analysis of tears in the context of understanding and diagnosing eye disease using current technologies of proteomics and metabolomics, and for their potential for clinical application. In the last several years, advances in proteomics/metabolomics/lipidomics technologies have… CONTINUE READING
