To conduct the Schirmer's Test, the clinician places a thin strip of filter paper against the inner surface of the lower eyelid, which then draws the liquid up like a wick.
At the end of study period (12 weeks), intergroup comparison between the study groups was done for the Schirmer's test values, TBUT test values, and OSDI score (Figure 1), which showed significant difference (p < 0.01).
Filter paper strips have already been validated to blot saliva secretions [17,19, 36-38] and the modified Schirmer's test has been used to measure resting whole saliva as also to distinguish subjects with and without xerostomia [19].
Table-II: Change in Tear film breakup time and Schirmer's Test with visits (N = 240)
An ocular distinctive manifestation with impaired Schirmer's test is sufficient for the diagnosis of the disease [6].
The Schirmer's test was conducted by measuring the amount of wetting of Whatman 41 filter paper, 5-mm wide and 35-mm long.
d) Rose bengal stain; Schirmer's test; lissamine green stain; questions about symptoms
The severity and frequency of DED symptoms including ocular discomfort, visual symptoms, conjunctival injection and staining, corneal staining, corneal/tear signs, lid/Meibomian glands, Schirmer's test, and TFBUT test were graded on a 4-point scale ranging from level 1 (mild and/or episodic) to level 4 (severe and/or disabling and constant).
* Schirmer's test, (Without anaesthesia) [less than or equal to] 5 mm/5 minutes.
We investigated the association between DED parameters (Schirmer's test I values, tear film break-up time (BUT) test values, ocular surface staining scores, and symptoms) and physical activity level as well as sedentary behavior.
The above diagnostic tests may help determine which group the patient falls into, eg a reduced Schirmer's test is indicative of ADDE, and reduced TBUT is indicative of EDE.
Discussion: Tear osmolarity was higher and BUT was lower in chronic blepharitis patients, while Schirmer's test was within normal limits.
The patients were analysed in accordance with demographic profile, predisposing factor, questionnaire, Tear Film Breakup Time (TFBUT), Schirmer's test, fluorescein staining, Rose Bengal staining after routine ophthalmological examination.
