World Clinics in Ophthalmology: Diagnosis and Management of Dry Eye
Dry eye syndrome, or dry eye disease, occurs when the eyes do not make enough tears, or the tears evaporate too quickly because the oil glands are blocked or abnormal. This leads to the eyes drying out and becoming inflamed and irritated (NHS Choices).
Part of the World Clinics in Ophthalmology series, this book is a concise guide to the diagnosis and management of dry eye. Beginning with the anatomy and functionality of the lacrimal system, the following chapters examine the classification of the condition, its diagnosis and management.
Edited by Juan Murube from Alcala University, Madrid and with contributions from experts in the USA, Canada, Australia and India, this useful reference includes more than 100 images and illustrations to enhance learning.
