Dry Eye Syndrome – Ocular Surface Disease
In 2017, the Tear Film & Ocular Surface Society published their most recent TFOS DEWS II® Report updating their definition of Dry Eye as:
“Dry eye is a multifactorial disease of the ocular surface characterized by a loss of homeostasis of the tear film, and accompanied by ocular symptoms, in which tear film instability and hyperosmolarity, ocular surface inflammation and damage, and neurosensory abnormalities play etiological roles.”
Dr. Salinger and The Dry Eye Spa have been one of the leading dry eye centers of excellence. Dr. Salinger speaks on behalf of several companies and is regarded as a dry eye expert within the eye health industry. The term “multifactorial” is key in that there is no single root cause of ocular surface disease however, Dr. Salinger’s approach to dry eye yields results and his patients come first.
