Keratometric Tear Breakup Time
These are the study participants whose tear break up times were measured with a keratometer.
Fluorescein Break Up Time
These are the study participants whose tear break up times were measured with with fluorescein dye.
- Difference Between Keratometric Tear Break Up Time (KTBUT) and Fluorescein Tear Break Up Time (FTBUT) [ Time Frame: 1 day ]This outcome measures the difference in tear break up time using a keratometer and fluorescein dye.
- Ocular Surface Disease Index (OSDI) Questionnaire [ Time Frame: 1 week ]The Ocular Surface Disease Index (OSDI) is a validated 12-item questionnaire used in dry eye studies. The OSDI Scale ranges from 0= Normal to 100= Severe. Subcategories include problems--all of the time, most of the time, half of the time,and none of the time.
