Keratometric and Fluorescein Tear Breakup Time
The purpose of the research is to determine if putting fluorescein onto the eye (most common test done for dry eye syndrome) is an accurate way to measure dry eye symptoms. The investigators can avoid placing any foreign substance into the eye by using a manual keratometer. Therefore, the investigators want to compare the measurements of tear break up time using fluorescein with using a manual keratometer and then compare these measurements to a validated dry eye symptoms questionnaire.
Measuring tear break up time using a manual keratometer is a better way to estimate dry eye symptoms than using fluorescein to measure tear break up time.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
An ionophorous, polyether antibiotic from Streptomyces chartreusensis. It binds and transports cations across membranes and uncouples oxidative phosphorylation while inhibiting ATPase of rat liver mitochondria. The substance is used mostly as a biochemical tool to study the role of divalent cations in various biological systems.
An organothiophosphate insecticide.
