Room: Crystal C
Please no cameras or recorders during the class presentation.
You will be asked to leave the room if request is not followed.
 Make sure to check in and out for each course – you
must do this even if you are staying in the same
room for multiple courses.
 Hand in your course ticket as you leave the class in
order to receive credit. The ticket is the ONLY way
to receive credit for this course.
 If you must leave the class for any amount of time
keep in mind if you are out of the room for more
than 10 minutes, you will not receive any CE credit.
 Please remember to complete the evaluation forms
that you were given when entering the room and
return them to the monitors as you leave.
 If you are an Option 1 or Option 3
participant, you have received Opto Buck$
to purchase products from participating
exhibitors in the Exhibit Hall. Look for the
sign in exhibitor booths and use your Buck$!

Quality of life
DED hampers lives and, in some cases, severely limit
activities such as reading, operating a computer,
working, driving, and watching television.3
Significantly higher prevalence of medical
comorbidities in patients with dry eye disease*:
 ischaemic heart disease, hyperlipidaemia, cardiac arrhythmias,
peripheral vascular disorder, stroke, migraines, myasthenia gravis,
RA, systemic lupus erythematosus, asthma, pulmonary circulation
disorders, diabetes with complications, hypothyroidism, liver
diseases, peptic ulcers, hepatitis B, deficiency anaemias, depression,
psychoses and solid tumors without metastasis.

Dry Eye Definition:
“A multifactorial disease of the
tears and ocular surface that
results in symptoms of discomfort,
visual disturbances, and tear film
instability with potential damage to
the ocular surface”
Accompanied by tear film
hyper-osmolarity and inflammation
of the ocular surface.
(Ocular Surface, 2007,5:75-92)
Dry eye disease is caused by
conditions that either increase
evaporation of the tear film or
decrease tear production.
The resulting increase in tear film
osmolarity (hyperosmolarity) leads to
ocular surface inflammation,
damage, and symptoms
Geerling G, Schaumberg DA, Optometry Times
March, 2009.
Ocular Surface Disease Update 2010, Lonsberry BB, CL Spectrum, July 2010
Various diseases that can
destabilize the tear film and result
in dryness of the ocular surface:
Aqueous deficient dry eye
 Evaporative dry eye
 Anterior blepharitis
 Meibomian gland dysfunction
(MGD/posterior blepharitis)
 Allergic conjunctivitis

Decrease in lipid secretions and LLT
Evaporation increases (4x to 16x)
Decrease in aqueous layer thickness
Unstable tear film
LLT indicates lipid layer thickness.
• MGD may be present without obvious signs
(non-obvious MGD [NOMGD])
• NOMGD may be a precursor to obvious MGD,
highly prevalent, and under diagnosed
Two possibilities with NOMGD: forceful expression
may or may not yield secretion
NOMGD with no overt inflammation or
pathology but neither oil nor any secretion
upon max force manual expression
NOMGD yielding white filamentary
secretions upon max force manual expression
1. Blackie CA, Korb DR. Prevalence of non-obvious meibomian gland dysfunction (NOMGD) in a dry eye study.
In press.
937 subjects (mean age (SD):
63.4 (14.5) years, range: 40–96).
Prevalence: asymptomatic MGD was 21.9%.
Prevalence increased with aging
Prevalence: symptomatic MGD was 8.6%.
Abnormal TBUT and NaFl staining were higher
among asymptomatic subjects (vs Nl)
Asymptomatic MGD was associated with
diabetes and cardiovascular disease
