  • The tear film or the pre-corneal tear film is a very thin fluid layer over the corneal surface [1] which consists of the mixture of the substance secreted by the lacrimal gland, accessory lacrimal gland, meibomian glands and the Goblet cells [2].
  • Tears are the watery fluid which is secreted by the lacrimal gland and accessory lacrimal glands that moistens and lubricates the ocular surface. It gives a good vision and protects our eyes from irritants [4].
  • Dry eye occurs when the quantity and/or quality of tears fail to keep the surface of the eye adequately lubricated [6]. It results in several ocular symptoms leading to discomfort and visual impairment.
  • The measurement of tear secretion is used for the diagnosis of dry eye which is mainly done by Schirmer Test [7]. It was described in 1903 and it measures the quantity of tears produced by one’s eyes to keep the eyes moist and healthy [3,5,8-10].
