Objectives: Dry eye is a multifactorial disease of the tears and ocular surface that results in symptoms of discomfort, visual disturbance, and tear film instability with potential damage to the ocular surface. It's accompanied by increased osmolarity of the tear film and inflammation of the ocular surface. Going through classifications of dry eye based on etiology that illustrates the multiple causes of dry eye, the mechanism of dry eye and shows how each cause can interact and exacerbate other forms of dry eye and, the severity of dry eye which may be mild with mild discomfort and unstable vision that could improve with just a blink to very sever that is associated with sever ocular surface damage and permanent visual loss. What really happens between blinks and how can we maintain good quality vision between blinks is illustrated in this lecture, how can we treat dry eyes based on understanding the different pathogenic mechanism is crucial in preventing sever ocular damage and permanent visual loss.
