Project 4: Evaluation of changes in tear film metrics and ocular signs induced by different types of refractive correction

Project Description

The aim of this project is to evaluate changes in tear film metrics and ocular signs induced by different types of refractive correction (corneal refractive surgery, intraocular lens implantation and contact lenses) focusing on the older population, since the prevalence of DED increases with age and due to presbyopia most people over 45 need refractive correction for distance, intermediate or near vision, or all three.
