Dry Eye Diagnosis and Treatment
Dry eye disease (DED) affects hundreds of millions of people throughout the world and is one of the most frequent causes of patient visits to eye care practitioners. Exacerbated by modern lifestyles, symptoms of DED vary widely from mild dryness to severe pain and blurred vision. A better understanding of this multifactorial disease has led to new and better treatments, many of which are in the realm of optometric and contact lens practice.
