    Assessment of Tear Meniscus with Optical Coherence Tomography in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

    Objective: To analyze the tear- meniscus with Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Methods: Patients with type 2 diabetes without Diabetic Retinopathy (DMR) (n=56), with non-proliferative DMR (NPDR) (n=40), proliferative DMR (PDR) (n=30) and control (n=50) were enrolled in the study. HbA1c and Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study classification of DMR were evaluated. To analyze dry eye, Schirmer test, Tear Break-Up Time (TBUT) test and fluorescein corneal staining were done. Tear Meniscus Height (TMH), Depth (TMD) and Area (TMA) were obtained with Fourier domain-OCT (FD-OCT). Results: TMH, TMD and TMA were ...
