  Purpose

The significance of our study is in the importance of understanding the quality and quantity of proteins in the human tear film from diseased and non-diseased patients. This pilot study will provide data to plan prospective research to better delineate the utility of tear proteins in diagnosing and following disease status in a non-invasive fashion.
