  Purpose
The significance of our study is in the importance of understanding the quality and quantity of proteins in the human tear film from diseased and non-diseased patients. This pilot study will provide data to plan prospective research to better delineate the utility of tear proteins in diagnosing and following disease status in a non-invasive fashion.

Condition Intervention
Eye Disease Other: Eye Examination

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Analysis of Human Tear Proteins: A Pilot Study to Describe the Tear Film Proteome of Patients Undergoing Ophthalmic Examination.
