Abstract

Background Eyelid motion analysis can provide important veloped for monitoring and analyzing eyelid motion charac- information about ophthalmic, neurologic, and systemic dis- teristics, including the inter-blink interval, eye closing/ eases. Routine assessment of eyelid function is currently opening duration and entire blink duration. The device should based mainly on clinical examination estimating Levator allow early objective non- invasive diagnosis and follow-up of Function and static palpebral fissure measurements. Most disease progression. It could be of great potential value in clinical tools developed to date are cumbersome expensive many ophthalmic, neurologic, and systemic diseases. and difficult to operate.
