What is Ocular Surface Disease?
Ocular surface includes cornea, conjunctiva, precorneal tearfilm, eyelids, lacrimal glands and meibomian glands. The cornea is the outer membrane, which exist in the anterior middle of the eye and play an important part in refraction and transmission of the light. The conjunctiva produce the mucous layer of the precorneal tear film and protect the eye from dust, debris and infection-causing microorganisms.
The precorneal tearfilm covers the cornea and conjunctiva and serves to provide necessary nutrients to the ocular surface and protect the ocular surface from desiccation and microorganisms. The lacrimal gland produces the aqueous part of the precorneal tearfilm whereas meibomian glands produces the lipid layer of the precorneal tearfilm.
Dry eye is not a simple disease caused by lack of tears but a complicated disease caused by dysfunction of integration of compositional and hydrodynamic factors of the ocular surface. Patients with ocular surface diseases suffer from loss of vision, discomfort, photophobia and lacrimation. In those cases comprehensive inspection of the ocular surface is necessary. We provide various medication and surgical options for maintain healthy ocular surface.
Comprehensive inspection of the ocular surface
We provide state of art comprehensive inspection of the ocular surface using the ICP PET which allows a full assessment of the ocular surface through a combination of tests for dry eye diagnosis, from tear break up time to Interferometry and Meibography.
