Neurotrophic keratitis (NK) is characterized by disrupted tearing and progressive corneal damage that does not readily heal. Until very recently, a lack of effective treatment to reinnervate and heal eyes affected by NK served to further hamper efforts toward timely diagnosis. Now that an effective treatment is available, ophthalmologists and optometrists need to identify patients who might benefit from treatment before the disease progresses to the point of corneal perforation and subsequent loss of visual acuity. The desired results of this educational activity are for ophthalmologists and optometrists to have a better understanding of the pathophysiology of NK as well as current best practices for screening, diagnosis, and treatment.
