    Assessment of Tear Meniscus with Optical Coherence Tomography in Thyroid-Associated Ophtalmopathy

    Purpose : To evaluate the tear -film meniscus with optical coherence tomography (OCT) in patients with Graves’ disease (GD). Materials and methods : Patients with GD without clinical features of thyroid-associated ophthalmopathy (TAO) (Group 1, n  = 35), patients with signs of TAO (Group 2, n  = 31) and healthy participants (Group 3, n  = 31) were enrolled. Palpebral fissure width, Schirmer test, tear break-up time (TBUT) test and tear -film meniscus height and area obtained with Fourier-domain-OCT were analyzed. Results : TBUT test scores were 8 s (2–25) in Group 1, 8 s (2–15) in Group 2 ( p  = 0.380); and10 s (5 ...
