Due to the growing population of dry eye patients, there has been much study of dry eye disease. Following the 2007 and 2017 full reports of the international Dry Eye Workshop (DEWs I and II), as well as the recent Dry Eye Assessment and Management (DREAM) trial, there is a growing body of consensus and evidence-based literature on the treatment of dry eye. Dry Eye Disease: A Practical Guide synthesizes all these scientific sources into a comprehensive yet user-friendly clinical reference.

From epidemiology and pathogenesis, to disease subgroups, diagnostics, and management, Drs. Francis S. Mah and Michelle K. Rhee with their team of over 35 renowned contributors have distilled all the latest information on dry eye disease into an easily digestible guide.

Featuring diverse case scenarios pulled from clinical practice, Dry Eye Disease engages the reader and encourages critical thinking to apply current understanding of dry eye disease to the office and operating room. All aspects of this complex disease are discussed, including the relationship between dry eye and surgical outcomes and contact lens wear.

Some topics include:

  • The latest biomarker diagnostics
  • Meibomian gland dysfunction therapeutic technologies
  • The role of integrative medicine
  • Advances in therapeutic contact lenses

Ophthalmologists and optometrists of all specialties and skill levels will find Dry Eye Disease: A Practical Guide a comprehensive yet practical clinical guide for treating the growing population of dry eye patients.
