Summary of "The Impact of Bilateral Subepithelial Corneal Infiltrates on Tear Film After Epidemic Keratoconjunctivitis."

To evaluate the effect of corneal subepithelial infiltrates (SEIs) on tear film function and best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) after persistent epidemic keratoconjunctivitis (EKC) and to compare the findings with controls.

Changes in Corneal Detection Thresholds After Repeated Tear Film Instability.

To use a human-based model to study the effects of repeated tear film instability on corneal detection thresholds to cold, mechanical, and chemical stimuli.

Clinical and biochemical analysis of the ageing tear film.

Tear film stability is important for healthy visual function, and yet little is known of the ageing mechanisms. The aim of this study was to investigate parallels between biochemical changes and clini...

Nerve growth factor in dogs: Assessment of two immunoassays and selected ocular parameters following a nicergoline challenge per os.

Impairment of corneal nerves can result in the development of ocular surface diseases such as aqueous tear deficiency and neurotrophic keratopathy. This study investigates oral nicergoline, an α-adre...

Assessment of tear film optical quality in a young short tear break-up time dry eye: Case-control study.

The aim of the study was to evaluate the dynamic changes of tear film optical quality in a short tear break-up time (TBUT) dry eye by using a double-pass system.

Presbyopia and the aging eye: Existing refractive approaches and their potential impact on dry eye signs and symptoms.

Every part of the human body is subject to aging, including the eye. An increased prevalence of dry eye disease with age is widely acknowledged. Aging threatens ocular surface homeostasis, altering th...

Corneal Tear Film Imaging of the Cornea Before and After Restasis Therapy

Dry Eye Syndrome (DES) is a disease affects the production and stability of the tear film, leading to vision disturbances and a major decrease in quality of life. The most recommended trea...

Evaluation of Tear Film Lipid Layer Thickness Change After Cataract Surgery

This study will compare cataract patients before and after phacoemulsification. Evaluations will be performed before and 1 and 3 months following cataract surgery, including measurement of...

Assessment of Tear Film-Based Proteins Associated With Care Solution Induced Corneal Staining

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...

Effect of Single Instillation of Three Different Topical Lubricants on Tear Film Thickness in Patients With Dry Eye Syndrome

The prevalence and incidence of dry eye syndrome (DES) is constantly increasing. Several therapeutic strategies have been proposed, but still no ideal regimen has been found. Recently, a n...

Influence of Lachrymal Substitute Gels on Tear Film Thickness in Patients With Moderate to Severe Dry Eye Syndrome

Dry eye syndrome is a highly prevalent ocular disease with an increasing incidence in the elderly population. Topically administered lubricants are the basis for treatment of this disease....

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A phthalic indicator dye that appears yellow-green in normal tear film and bright green in a more alkaline medium, such as the aqueous humor, and is used therapeutically as a diagnostic aid in corneal injuries and corneal trauma. It has been approved by FDA for use in externally applied drugs and cosmetics. (From Merck Index, 12th ed; American Medical Association Drug Evaluations; 1995, p2275)

A surgical technique to correct REFRACTIVE ERRORS of the EYE, such as MYOPIA and ASTIGMATISM. In this method, a flap of CORNEAL EPITHELIUM is created by exposure of the area to dilute alcohol. The flap is lifted and then replaced after laser ablation of the subepithelial CORNEA.

Corneal and conjunctival dryness due to deficient tear production, predominantly in menopausal and post-menopausal women. Filamentary keratitis or erosion of the conjunctival and corneal epithelium may be caused by these disorders. Sensation of the presence of a foreign body in the eye and burning of the eyes may occur.

Use of a device (film badge) for measuring exposure of individuals to radiation. It is usually made of metal, plastic, or paper and loaded with one or more pieces of x-ray film.

The tear-forming and tear-conducting system which includes the lacrimal glands, eyelid margins, conjunctival sac, and the tear drainage system.
