There are many causes of distal RTA, which causes may be primary or (more commonly) secondary (due to paraproteinemia, medullary sponge kidney, nephrocalcinosis, obstructive uropathy, or autoimmune disease, etc.) (4) In our patient, the history of subjective xerophthalmia, subjective xerostomia, and positive anti-SS-A (Ro) and anti-SS-B(La) along with the results of the 5-minute Schirmer's test
together supported the clinical diagnosis of pSS (5).
There was negative correlation between duration (in years) and the Schirmer's test
(in mm) and this correlation was statistically significant (r =-0.785, p <0.001) (Figure 1).
results and tear film break-up time values were significantly lower in the PCOS group (p=0.001 and p=0.001 respectively).
The between-group and within-group before-and-after paired comparison results of Schirmer's test
, BUT test, and Corneal and Conjunctival staining were analysed and showed no significant changes in lacrimal gland function in either groups (p > 0.05) (Table 3).
Using Schirmer's test
and dry eye questionnaire, Skare and co-researchers assessed the prevalence of lacrimal dysfunction during pregnancy and compared it with non-pregnant women.
The 0.9% dose of Seciera also indicated superiority to placebo-vehicle in a responder analysis of tear production (>= 10 mm increase in Schirmer's test
) and in central and temporal corneal staining.
For this impressive study, 13 healthy volunteers with moderately dry eyes (according to Schirmer's test
) took either 30 or 60 mg of maqui extract daily and were evaluated at 30 and 60 days.

The parameters assessed in this study included Schirmer's test
, tear breakup time (TBUT) test, and Ocular Surface Disease Index (OSDI).
These explore key techniques such as fluorescein and drop installation, as well as the Schirmer's Test
. The videos will accelerate the development of these skills for any student.
is used routinely by ophthalmologists to measure tear film wetness as one of the objective ocular components of the American European classification criteria for identifying Sjogren Syndrome (SS) .
