Ocular surface disease (OSD) and dry eye disease (DED) may be the most common complaint for an office visit; shouldn’t we be able to diagnose with ease and treat effectively? From quick office diagnosis to use of point of care products to understanding mechanisms that cause OSD the interest in this area is expanding rapidly. Understanding core mechanisms and developing objective minimally invasive metrics will be key to understanding new diagnostic devices and creating effective treatments. Randomized clinical trials (RCT), such as DREAM (DRy Eye Assessment and Management) based on bench research, will develop the backbone of evidence to guide best practices for patient care.
