Taking stock of dry eye disease: DEWS II

The newest report on dry eye (DEWS II) from the Tear Film & Ocular Surface Society is essential reading for eye care practitioners. If you haven’t found the time yet, we’ve got you covered. In this edition of Contact Lens Update, Jenny Craig (Vice Chair of the DEWS II steering committee) provides an overview of what you can expect from the report, our research team summarizes each of the topics covered in the report, and Ally Xue shares a poster comparing the results of current dry eye research with the self-reported clinical practices of optometrists and ophthalmologists in New Zealand.
