DEWS II Expert Insights for Dry Eye Disease Course 1
The DEWS II report, published in 2017, is the most comprehensive report covering the definition, diagnosis and management of dry eye disease to date. The report and its executive summary contain useful advice for clinicians on identifying, classifying and treating patients suffering from dry eye disease. In November 2017, five leading optometrists and ophthalmologists from the UK and Ireland met in Dublin for a roundtable event, hosted by Scope, to discuss the DEWS II report; its implications for the future of dry eye disease diagnosis and treatment; and strategies for greater awareness among optometrists, ophthalmologists, GPs, pharmacists, and the general public.
In this first of a series of four courses we present a summary of the findings of the panel, including a video of the round table discussion summary session from November 2017.
We recommend you download the ‘Handout’ below which includes competencies, learning objectives, and multiple choice questions for this course.
