Research Description

Meng Lin is the Director of UC Berkeley Clinical Research Center, Co-Chief of the Dry Eye Clinic, and Chief of the Ocular Surface Imaging Clinic.  Her research focus includes:  1) effect of contact lenses and lens care solutions on ocular surface integrity (e.g., rheology of tear film, corneal epithelial barrier function); (2) inherent differences in ocular surface integrity among different ethnic groups and how these differences contribute to success or failure in contact lens wear; (3) understanding genetic and environmental factors on non-contact-lens-induced dry eye and tear film stability; and (4) factors affecting post-lens aqueous tear mixing under soft contact lenses
