    OCT Imaging of Lid-Parallel Conjunctival Folds in Soft Contact Lens Wearers
    Purpose. To visualize, using Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT), the alterations in lid-parallel conjunctival fold (LIPCOF) morphology in eyes with contact lenses and after their removal. Methods. One randomly selected eye of each of 24 volunteers with normal ocular surface status was examined using FD-OCT. The study group included 18 female and 6 male subjects, with a mean age of 28.9 years (range, 18–50 years). The presence, height, and number of conjunctival folds and the tear meniscus area were evaluated by FD-OCT, and the difference between “before and after lens removal” were analyzed by the Wilcoxon signed-rank test ...
