The purpose of this study was to assess spontaneous eyeblink activity in the primary eye position, and its relationship to the exposed ocular surface area in elderly individuals without significant ocular surface disease. Spontaneous eyeblink frequency (SEBF) was assessed for a group of Caucasians aged 61 to 81 years, by videography in silence over a 5 min period; inter-blink interval (IBI), the maximum inter-blink interval (mIBI) and the modal eyeblink frequency (mEBF) were derived from video… CONTINUE READING
