Posted on

When it comes to dry eye, there is a substantial gap between research findings and outcomes patients consider important, according to a recent article. 

Researchers surveyed 420 dry eye patients on their priorities and compared them to outcomes measured in research projects. Patients rated less than one-fourth of 109 research outcomes as important.

The most important 3: Ocular burning or stinging, ocular discomfort, and ocular pain.
