Early identification and prompt management of patients with ocular surface disease (OSD) can lessen disease severity and help achieve earlier resolution. However, OSD continues to be challenging to differentially diagnose, and therefore, it is frequently undertreated. The continued assessment and refinement of diagnostic and management algorithms, along with advances in ocular imaging and therapeutic modalities, have the potential to enhance both visual acuity outcomes and quality of life in patients with OSD. Recent and emerging additions to the therapeutic armamentarium provide expanded treatment options for patients with dry eye, meibomian gland dysfunction, and other types of ocular surface disease. In this educational activity, expert clinicians review diagnostic modalities and therapeutic strategies for the management of OSD, offering practical guidance through the presentation of challenging clinical cases. Faculty will also differentiate current and emerging therapeutic strategies for their ability to optimize therapy, improve patient outcomes, and maintain a healthy ocular surface.
