    Effects of Medium-Term Soft Contact Lens Fitting on Dry Eye: Analyses Using Ultra-High Resolution Optical Coherence Tomography and Digital Slit-Lamp Biomicroscopy

    Purpose. This study aimed to evaluate the medium-term fit of soft contact lenses (SCLs) and its effects on dry eye by using ultra-high-resolution optical coherence tomography (UHR-OCT) and digital slit-lamp biomicroscopy (DSLB) and identify factors indicating a better contact lens fit. Methods. A total of 14 participants (7 men, 7 women; mean age, 23.1 years) were recruited. Temporal lag and conjunctival coverage were imaged by UHR-OCT. DSLB was used to assess lens decentration and blink-induced movement. In addition, dry eye indices, including ocular surface disease index (OSDI), tear break-up time (TBUT), and Schirmer I test scores, were measured at ...
