Abstract

The surface of the eye needs to be wet constantly to ensure its integrity in maintaining ocular comfort, clear vision, and ocular health. This article presents new findings in the tear dynamics of the human eye, with an emphasis on the tear meniscus and tear film through the day and in response to punctual occlusion and wearing of contact lenses. Recent advances in imaging technique are briefly discussed.
