Current Updates on Management of Dry Eye Disease
01 Aug 2022
Dry eye disease (DED) is a multifactorial condition characterized by tear film instability, and results in ocular discomfort and visual disturbance, and may impact patient’s quality of life such as reading and driving at night. The outer most lipid layer of the tear film, formed by the meibum, helps to maintain tear film stability by reducing the rate of tear evaporation. Alteration in the tear lipid layer, because of impaired quality or quantity of the meibum, is one of the most common causes of evaporative DED.
