Intrepid Webinar Series Presents a Very Special Lecture for Dry Eye Awareness Month: New Therapeutic Approaches and Challenges for the Treatment of Dry Eyes

Thursday, July 16, 2020
8:30 PM ET
Presented by David A. Sullivan, MS, PhD, FARVO
Schepens Eye Research Institute, Department of Ophthalmology, Harvard Medical School, Founder, Tear Film & Ocular Surface Society

Dry eye disease (DED) afflicts hundreds of millions of people throughout the world and is one of the most frequent causes of patient visits to eye care practitioners. DED is a symptomatic disease, characterized by a vicious cycle of hyperosmolarity and tear film instability, which leads to increased ocular surface inflammation, damage and neurosensory abnormalities. Moderate to severe DED is often associated with significant pain, limitations in performing daily activities, reduced vitality, poor general health, and depression.

There is no safe and effective global treatment for DED, and its therapy remains a profound unmet need. A virtual kaleidoscope of new therapeutic approaches has been proposed to treat aqueous- deficient and/or evaporative DED. My presentation will highlight these approaches, and also address the significant clinical endpoint challenges that serve as barriers to the successful development of potential treatments for DED.
