Dry Eye, a multifactorial and chronic disease
Dry eye is a multifactorial and chronic disease caused by poor tear quality or tear deficiency. It also has a very varied symptomatology and can manifest itself in different ways depending on its severity: "All cases of dry eye present an inflammation on the ocular surface that produces morphological changes in the cells that compose it," explains Dr. Miriam Barbany, ophthalmologist in the Department of Cornea, Cataract and Refractive Surgery at IMO and one of the scientific coordinators of the Masterclass.
On the other hand, "it is characterized by a wide variety of symptoms: sensation of dry eyes, red eye, itching/itching, irritation or tearing. In addition, the most severe cases can even affect the patient's ability to open their eyes, significantly reducing their quality of life," continues Barbany.
