TREATMENT EFFECTS

In agreement with the recent guidelines given by the Tear Film and Ocular Surface Society (The International Dry Eye Workshop (2007), dry eye disease should be treated based on level of disease severity with 4 levels of disease severity. Dry eye severity level (DESL) is based on symptoms and signs (e.g. conjunctival injection, ocular surface staining, meibomian gland dysfunction, Tear Film Break-Up Time (TFBUT), and Schirmer score). A prospective uncontrolled study of the first 360 patients treated at The Norwegian Dry Eye Clinic with 6-month follow-up demonstrated significant reduction in DESL after 1 month. Furthermore, significant reduction in vital staining of the ocular surface and significant increase in TFBUT was found after 1 month and 6 months, respectively. Collectively, our data indicate that the treatment strategy at the The Norwegian Dry Eye Clinic is effective in improving dry eye. Meet some of our patients and read their stories.
