Objective: To determine the accuracy of the Ferning, Schimer I and TBUT test in
cataract patients after cataract surgery with the ECCE technique at the Eye
Polyclinic at Mohammad Hoesin Hospital Palembang and the Special Eye Hospital
Palembang Methods: Diagnostic test was undertaken at the Eye Polyclinic at
Mohammad Hoesin Hospital Palembang and the Special Eye Hospital Palembang
from May 2019 to January 2020. There were 42 postoperative cataract patients who
met the inclusion criteria. Ferning, Schimer I and TBUT tests were performed before
surgery and one month after surgery. Data analysis using SPSS version 22.0 (SPSS,
Inc Chicago, Illinois). Results: Fourty two samples of postoperative cataract surgery
with ECCE technique obtained by female sex (57,1%) with a mean age of cataract
patients of approximately 58.09 years. The accuracy of Schimer I and TBUT is 0.952
with 100% sensitivity, 50% specificity, 95% positive predictive value (PPV) and 100%
negative predictive value (NPV), the accuracy of TBUT and Ferning is 0.881 with
90.2% sensitivity, 0% specificity , positive predictive value (PPV) 97.4% and negative
predictive value (NPV) 0% while the accuracy of Ferning and Schimer I was 0.928
with a sensitivity of 97.5%, specificity of 0%, positive predictive value (PPV) of 95.1%
and negative predictive value (NPV) 0%. Conclusion: Schimer I test is more accurate
to use as a predictor of dry eye in postoperative cataract patients than Ferning and
TBUT
