Contact lens wearers complain of various types of contact lens discomfort (CLD), which may result in the discontinuation of contact lenses. CLD is often associated with dry eye disease. A contact lens...
Measurement of tear film breakup time (TBUT) has become a standard diagnostic procedure in the dry eye clinic. Short TBUT-type dry eye is characterized by TBUT of less than 5 seconds and dry eye sympt...
To evaluate the ocular surface changes and tear-film functions in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
To evaluate the efficacy of botulinum toxin A (BoNT-A) in reducing photophobia and dry eye symptoms in individuals with chronic migraine. Additionally, we aimed to evaluate tear film volume as a poten...
Lower blepharoplasty has been used for rejuvenating lower eyelids, and diverse modifications have been used to treat conjunct deformities at the tear trough/lid-cheek junction. Strategies for recontou...
A refractive error is the most common reason for reduced visual acuity. Myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and presbyopia belong to the four basic refractive errors and, unfortunately, cannot ...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the tear film evaporation of symptomatic soft contact lens wearers in the absence of contact lens wear and after at least 8 hours of contact lens w...
In this study, clinical variables related to eyelids that potentially have an effect on contact lens discomfort will be investigated such as eyelid signs and secretions, eyelid sensitivity...
Tears play a vital role in vision. A thin layer of tears is always present to cover the surface of the eye for optimal comfort and vision. There are several layers to the tear film, and th...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the association of inflammatory mediators found in the tear film during the development and following the induction of contact lens solution-ind...
In screening and diagnostic tests, the probability that a person with a positive test is a true positive (i.e., has the disease), is referred to as the predictive value of a positive test; whereas, the predictive value of a negative test is the probability that the person with a negative test does not have the disease. Predictive value is related to the sensitivity and specificity of the test.
