Clinicians should consider evaluating patients with lid laxity for ocular surface disease, according to results of a study presented at the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology meeting that evaluated symptoms and other signs of dry eye in subjects with lax lids.
Researchers performed the lid snap test (LST) for lower eyelid/orbicularis oculi laxity and the medial canthal laxity test (MCT) on 66 subjects and the InflammaDry Test for MMP-9 on the right eye in all subjects, with 33 eyes in the same cohort.
