Eye casualty and clinic: learning to look beyond the obvious in dry eye disease

Dry eye disease remains one of the most common presentations to eye casualty. This webinar will highlight the importance of looking beyond the surface and taking an effective patient history when dealing with patients presenting to A&E to improve outcomes and reduce the strain on services. We will also look at the burden of dry eye disease for patients and the NHS, including why women may be more commonly affected than men, and how clinicians can use the full array of treatments available to provide sustainable solutions for patients.
CET and CPD points available for attendees.
