tfos dews II report

DEWS II
MISSION & OBJECTIVES

We anticipate that TFOS DEWS II will update the definition, classification and diagnosis of dry eye disease, critically assess the etiology, mechanism, distribution and global impact of this disorder, and address its management and therapy.

Potential Subcommittee topics include –

• Definition and classification
• Pathophysiology
• Sex differences
• Pain/sensation
• Iatrogenic dry eye (i.e. drug- and surgery-induced)
• Epidemiology
• Tear film
• Diagnosis
• Management & therapy
• Clinical trial design
• Consumer (i.e. communication of the conclusions and recommendations for the lay person)

This report will be published in a peer-reviewed journal and the TFOS DEWS II members will be authors. We anticipate that this evidence-based process may require more than 18 months to complete. The TFOS DEWS II will be, as with all TFOS Workshops, an international effort that will lead to a global consensus on dry eye disease. Preliminary Subcommittee summaries may be presented at the next TFOS Conference, which will occur from September 7 to 10, 2016, in Montpellier, France.
