Dry eye disease - causes and treatment

Published in Australian Doctor - Clinical Update: Therapy update 14 October 2019
Dry eye disease is common, with prevalence estimated between 4.6% and 46%

The condition, also known as keratoconjunctivitis sicca, is more common in women.

The surge in digital devices has resulted in increasing prevalence of this condition, including among younger populations.

Many patients are asymptomatic. Treatment may prove difficult in such patients as it can require significant effort and persistence on their part.
