OCULAR SURFACE DISEASE
OCULAR SURFACE DISEASE
Ocular Surface Disease (OSD), also known as Dry Eye Disease (DED) is a very complex condition that is chronic and progressive.
There are two primary types of dry eye disease: Evaporative and Aqueous deficient.
Evaporative DED is caused by Meibomian gland dysfunction and is present in over 80% of cases. Cases of purely aqueous deficient DED are fairly rare, occurring about 10% of the time.
Dry Eye Syndrome and Blepharitis are two components of Ocular Surface Disease (OSD). Dry Eye Syndrome refers to a group of disorders of the tear film that result from decreased tear production and/or increased tear evaporation. Blepharitis, or inflammation along the surface of the eyelid, also contributes to OSD by increasing tear evaporation.
