Abstract Details


To analyze the correlation between Ocular Surface Disease Index (OSDI) questionnaire score and average bulbar redness (BR) measured by Keratograph 5M(K5M) in limbal stem cell deficiency (LSCD) patients.


We studied LSCD patients diagnosed according to Dua clinical criteria belonging to the Ocular Surface Unit of Virgen Macarena and Virgen del Rocio Hospitals (Seville, Spain).


38 patients (76 eyes) were analyzed with a mean age of 54.63 years. Each subject completed OSDI questionnaire and an ocular surface evaluation was performed by K5M. OSDI (0 to 100 points) is a questionnaire that measures ocular surface symptoms and its patient's daily life impact. The K5M detects and automatically classifies bulbar, limbal and average redness (from 0 to 4), with a high inter- and intra repeatability. OSDI score and average BR were analyzed using Pearson correlation coefficient to establish whether there was a relationship between them.


Means were 47.5 (25.8) for OSDI score and 1.72 (0.78) for average BR. Pearson correlation coefficient showed no linear relationship between both variables (r = 0.097; p = 0.453).


OSDI and average BR measured by K5M are not correlated in LSCD patients.
