THE UPDATED DEFINITION1
“Dry eye is a multifactorial disease of the ocular surface characterized by a loss of homeostasis of the tear film, and accompanied by ocular symptoms, in which tear film instability and hyperosmolarity, ocular surface inflammation and damage, and neurosensory abnormalities play etiological roles.”
- The management of dry eye disease (DED) remains something of an art, not easily
lending itself to a rigid, evidence-based algorithm that accommodates all patients with
dry eye symptoms and signs.
- For patients who do not respond to a given level of management, or who exhibit more
severe DED, may need extra management and in some cases, the previous therapy
may be continued, in addition to any new therapies.
- The VISUfarma portfolio offers a variety of products to help manage different types of
symptoms caused by dry eye disease and their management.
