Prevalence of Dry Eye Disease Among Individuals Scheduled for Cataract Surgery in a Norwegian Cataract Clinic

Abstract: Purpose To determine the prevalence of dry eye disease (DED) in patients scheduled for cataract surgery in a Norwegian eye clinic. Patients and Methods 218 patients scheduled for cataract surgery were examined for DED in one randomly selected eye and questioned regarding symptoms and risk factors.

“…An Oculus Keratograph 5 M (Oculus Optikgeräte, Wetzlar, Germany) was used to perform meibography, measurement of tear meniscus height and non‐contact break‐up time (NBUT). Meibomian gland drop‐out (meiboscore) was assessed from infrared images of the upper and lower eyelids (Ocular Keratograph 5 M), and the images were graded as previously described (Graae Jensen et al., 2023). Grade 0 represented no loss of meibomian glands, grade 1; <1/3 of glands lost, grade 2; 1/3–2/3 glands lost and grade 3; >2/3 glands lost.…”

“…Grade 0 represented no loss of meibomian glands, grade 1; <1/3 of glands lost, grade 2; 1/3–2/3 glands lost and grade 3; >2/3 glands lost. NBUT was measured as previously described (Graae Jensen et al., 2023; Malmin et al., 2023). To assess NBUT, patients were instructed to blink twice and then refrain from blinking for as long as possible, but maximally for 24 s. After the second blink, the measurement started automatically and disruption of the tear film was detected automatically by the Oculus Keratography 5 M. NBUT was measured three times and the average value was used.…”
