The Pathophysiology of Dry Eye Disease: An Underappreciated Story

  Channels: General | Posted 1/31/2020

Dry eye is more than just low tear production and an itchy, burning, gritty sensation. The pathophysiology of this condition is critical, and in the first edition of On the Surface, Laura Periman, MD, sits down with Mark Milner, MD, to address the topic. Drs. Periman and Milner review the latest literature and discuss the tear film, inflammation, what's happening on an immunological level, and more.
