Résumé / Abstract

This study assessed intraobserver and interobserver variability in the fluorescein dye disappearance test (DDT) and compared the DDT with a modified Jones I test in a masked clinical trial in asymptomatic patients. Seventy-six patients at the Jerry L. Pettis Memorial Veterans Administration Hospital, (152 eyes) who were without epiphora, high tear lake, ectropion, or punctal stenosis in either eye underwent modified Jones testing and the DDT. The latter was photographed at 5 minutes, and the photos were assessed independently by three experts. Afterward, these experts assessed all the data as a group and made a final assessment regarding patency. The final assessment of the panel was that 142 systems were patent, two were equivocal, and eight were obstructed. The DDT interpretations of two physicians were in agreement with the final assessment in 95% to 98% of eyes. The third physician had a systematic error in his interpretation of the DDT, causing his results to be only 73% accurate. Interobserver variability in the DDT was significant at P <0.00005. The Jones test was in agreement with the final assessment in 144 of 150 eyes, or 96%. When performed properly, the DDT and the Jones I tests gave excellent results in normal patients.
