Dry Eye

Dry Eye Catalysts Found in All Walks of Life

A mammoth report from TFOS will document how patients’ ordinary daily activities manifest and perpetuate the disease, and how clinicians can guide them toward better choices.

Rheumatic Patients Suffer from Higher Rate of Ocular Surface Disorders

Study shows anxiety and depression, lower quality of life, poorer sleep quality and dry eye are more commonly associated with this patient cohort.

Early DED Treatment Recommended in OSA Patients

Sleep apnea increases risk for ocular surface inflammation and severe dry eye.

Low Humidity Contributes to DED

Researchers suggest greater diligence to optimizing the water content in indoor environments could be a complementary means of improving ocular surface comfort.

B+L, Novaliq Eye Drop Approved For Treatment of DED

Miebo, previously known as NOV03, aims to ease signs and symptoms in as few as 15 days by reducing tear evaporation, the company says.

Hydrating the whole body—not just the eyes—is key to improving the ocular surface.

Assessing Eyelid Health in Dry Eye Patients
