Ocular surface disease (OSD) is a group of disorders commonly seen in ophthalmic practice, but it is challenging to differentially diagnose and is frequently undertreated. Nearly 40% of patient visits to comprehensive ophthalmologists are due to OSD. Dry eye disease (DED) is a condition of the ocular surface in which multiple factors are responsible for the disturbance of the stability of tear film, leading to changes in vision and symptoms that significantly disrupt the quality of life of many individuals in the United States and elsewhere. The faculty of this expert panel, captured live at the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) Annual Meeting 2018, will review new research about methods and modalities that assist in making the differential diagnosis of OSD as well the management of patients with DED.
