Objective: To evaluate the correlation with Schirmer Test and Break up Time (BUT) of tear osmolarity measurement in dry eyes syndrome (DES) patients.
Material and Methods: New diagnosed 30 dry eye patients and 30 healthy voluntary persons of similar age and gender included prospectively in this study. In addition to the full ophthalmic examination, Schirmer Test and BUT test were performed to all participants. Tear osmolarity measurements have been done after pre-examination but in different day, with TearLab Osmolarity System (TearLab Corporation, San Diego, CA, USA). The results have been evaluated statistically.
Results: No statistically significant difference was found between mean age, gender of DES and control groups (p
