  • Expressions on Evaporation: Clinical Perspectives on the Management of Dry Eye Disease

    Expressions on Evaporation: Clinical Perspectives on the Management of Dry Eye Disease

    Corneal nerves have an essential role in maintaining ocular surface health and homeostasis. Manifestations of neurosensory abnormalities affecting corneal innervation include dry eye disease, neurotrophic keratopathy, and neuropathic corneal pain. These conditions can exist as a standalone entity, but they can also be concurrent and have overlapping features, making diagnosis challenging. Early diagnosis of dry eye disease, neurotrophic keratopathy, and neuropathic corneal pain is important to allow intervention that can help to restore function and improve quality of life. This educational activity reviews common diagnostic modalities that can be used by clinicians to identify these conditions.
