    Imaging lid-parallel conjunctival folds with OCT and comparing its grading with the slit lamp classification in dry eye patients and normal subjects
    Purpose: to visualize and describe the morphological appearance of lid-parallel conjunctival folds (LIPCOF) using optical coherence tomography (OCT) and to relate it to dry eye signs and symptoms. Methods: LIPCOF grade, non-invasive tear film break-up time (NIBUT), lipid layer's interference pattern and dry eye symptoms were recorded in 17 normal and 33 dry eye cases. LIPCOF was evaluated with slit lamp and visualized with OCT. Three different algorithms for OCT was developed to grade LIPCOF using either tear meniscus height or the covering tear film on the folds evaluated by OCT. Results: The three OCT methods showed significant correlations ...
