Course Topics

• The ocular surface and tear film,

• DED sub-typing and differential diagnosis,
• Epidemiology of dry eye disease risk factors, and more

This 30-hour course will be presented via Zoom over a block of four weeks from 7 August – 1 September 2023, enabling you to learn at your own pace.

The Dry Eye Disease: Diagnosis and Management short course has been supported by CSL Seqirus and Lumenis.
