TFOS releases Dry Eye Workshop report
Dry eye diseases are a global problem, afflicting over 30 million people in the U.S. alone. These diseases are one of the most frequent causes of patient visits to eye care practitioners.
As part of its work on dry eye, the Tear Film and Ocular Surface Society (TFOS) has released the TFOS Dry Eye Workshop II (TFOS DEWS II) Report. In this first re-examination of the topic since the initial report issued in 2007, TFOS DEWS II updates the definition, classification and diagnosis of dry eye; critically evaluates the epidemiology, pathophysiology, mechanism and impact of the disease; addresses its management and therapy; and develops recommendations for the design of clinical trials to assess pharmaceutical interventions.

TFOS DEWS II highlights were presented at a July 12 Congressional Briefing entitled Dry Eye: An Updated Definition, A Greater Impact on Vision Health — co-hosted by TFOS and the Alliance for Eye and Vision Research (AEVR).
