Dry Eye

Dry eye can be a chronic condition for many individuals. It requires frequent use of eye lubricants to obtain symptomatic relief and preserve corneal health.

The recent development of anterior chamber optical coherence tomography has enabled novel ways to quantitatively assess the eye’s tear film in dry-eye conditions. It is hoped that this new instrumentation will lead to a better understanding of the spectrum of dry-eye conditions and will subsequently lead to improved treatments.
