Infrared Imaging of Meibomian Glands and Evaluation of the Lipid Layer in Sjogren's Syndrome Patients and Nondry Eye Controls
(Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology, 2015-05-02)
Purpose.: The purpose of this study was to evaluate meibomian gland dropout and lipid layer thickness (LLT) in patients with and without Sjögren's syndrome dry eye (SS). Methods.: We recruited 11 participants with SS ...
Self versus examiner administration of the Ocular Surface Disease Index©
Purpose: To compare the difference in Ocular Surface Disease Index© (OSDI) scores when participants were given the OSDI to complete on their own (self-guided, SG), versus under the guidance of the examiner (examiner-guided, ...
Atomic force microscopy and Langmuir–Blodgett monolayer technique to assess contact lens deposits and human meibum extracts
Purpose: The purpose of this exploratory study was to investigate the differences in meibomian gland secretions, contact lens (CL) lipid extracts, and CL surface topography between participants with and without meibomian ...
Historical overview of imaging the meibomian glands
Growing knowledge of the role of the meibomian glands in dry eye disease and contact lens discomfort has resulted in a surge of interest in visualizing these glands within the eyelids. This manuscript provides an overview ...
