New Guidance on Dry Eye Disease Treatment

The Centre for Ocular Research and Education (CORE) has explored recent technological advances to combat dry eye disease (DED) with the publication of a series of clinically-relevant perspectives from four international experts.

The latest Contact Lens Update examines several in-office procedures, as well as a clinical case report that demonstrates their usefulness when treating contact lens discomfort caused by dry eye.

“With the ever-increasing burden of dry eye disease, eye care professionals must stay abreast of cutting-edge therapies available to their practices and patients,” said CORE Director Lyndon Jones.

Jennifer Craig, professor in Ophthalmology at the University of Auckland, provides a comprehensive, evidence-based overview of the various technologies and instruments that are available for DED treatment.

Leslie O’Dell, medical director for Optometry America, discusses the results of a comprehensive review paper examining eyelid warming devices. The article outlines the evidence for the efficacy of these devices and their place in therapy.

Karl G. Stonecipher, from the University of North Carolina and Tulane University, shares insights from his study on intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy. The study showed that the use of IPL or low-level light therapy was beneficial in patients with severe meibomian gland dysfunction who had failed treatment with topical and systemic medications.

Also included in the publication is a clinical insight by Selina McGee, from the Northeastern State University College of Optometry. This case report outlines the complete assessment and successful treatment of a patient experiencing contact lens discomfort due to DED.
