“Beyond the ocular surface: Neuropathic pain as a new paradigm for dry eye”

Dry eye (DE) affects one-in-five individuals and substantially impacts quality of life. In common with other chronic pain syndromes, evidence suggests that some DE patients display corneal nerve damage and neuropathic pain. In this seminar, we will discuss how the term “dry eye” has evolved over the past 2 decades and introduce a novel paradigm of sub-classifying disease by descriptors of neuropathic pain and objective tests of somatosensory dysfunction. The implications of this new classification system on the diagnosis and management of DE will then be discussed.
Location: BPEI, Jose Berrocal Auditorium, 2nd floor
