Abstract
As a new proposal, natural tears collected from the Schirmer strips were studied using surface pressure-area, p-A, isotherms obtained with the Langmuir technique. Parameters such as limit surface pressure, plimit, elastic modulus at the maximum, CS-1max, and surface pressure at the maximum, pmax, were correlated with clinical tests, such as the Schirmer (SCH) and the tear film breakup-time (TFBUT) tests. The analysis from the chi-square test indicates dependence between the SCH test and the type...
