    Visualization of the Precorneal Tear Film Using Ultrahigh Resolution Optical Coherence Tomography in Dry Eye

    Purpose: To visualize the precorneal tear film (PCTF) in dry eye patients using ultrahigh resolution optical coherence tomography (UHR-OCT). Methods: A custom-built UHR-OCT with ultrahigh resolution (~3 [mu]m) was used to image the PCTF at the vertical meridian. Eighteen right eyes of 18 previously diagnosed dry eye patients (9 men and 9 women, age, 47.8+/-20.7 years) with aqueous tear deficiency were studied. Images were taken during normal and delayed blinking. The visualized PCTF was measured directly. An indirect calculation was used to obtain the thickness in cases where the PCTF could not be visualized. Results: During ...
