Abstract
Dry-eye is a disease affecting the normal function of the tear film and has a prevalence of 15%. Nowadays there is not a gold standard technique for evaluating the tear film, despite the huge Interest of opticians, ophthalmologist and pharma lndustry. In this project, we propose the development of a new method for tear film evaluatlon by means of speckle lnterferometry, a simple technlque based on photonlcs. The project lncludes the development of the method, construction of a prototype and lts application In clinlcal practlce.
