Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Many dry eye (DE) patients are sensitive to adverse environments where tear evaporation rate (TER) increases. Pilot study—A controlled environment chamber was used to determine the time of exposure required for TER to reach steady state equilibrium at 40% relative humidity (RH). Study 1—To assess the difference between normal and DE subjects in their tear physiology response. Study 2—To determine, under varying environmental conditions, the efficacy of an emulsion eye drop on tear physiology.
