The number of people with dry eye disease (DED) is increasing, likely due to the influence of acts of modern living, such as use of digital screens and working in indoor office environments. The increase in DED prevalence is not age specific; both young and old patients are sitting in the chairs of eye care practitioners with signs and symptoms of DED. These patients are often first seen by optometrists, who are at the front line of eye health and work collaboratively with ophthalmologists on more severe cases of DED. This collaboration extends into the surgical room. A successful comanaging partnership between the optometrist and the ophthalmologist ensures that patients achieve and maintain a healthy ocular surface throughout the entire surgical process. The desired results of this activity are to update clinicians on diagnostic and treatment strategies for the management of DED as well as collaborative strategies that can better educate patients on their role in the successful management of their DED.
