Episode 37: Know the Root Cause of DED

by Dave Kading, OD, Mile Brujic, OD

Dry eye disease is a chronic, progressive condition, and patients experience a continuum of dryness. The ocular damage caused by DED can become irreversible, and we now know that we cannot trust objective signs to correlate with patients’ symptoms.
