Emerging Trends and Management of Dry Eye

A Panel Discussion

This program considers the important causes of dry

eye and ocular surface disease, presents an overview

of local and systemic causes, discusses differential

diagnosis, and proposes an evidence based approach

to management and patient care. Emphasis is placed

on both the palliative and restorative approach to care.

Participants will receive updated information on
