Dry eye disease (DED) is a condition of the ocular surface in which multiple factors are responsible for the instability of the tear film, leading to symptoms that can significantly impact the quality of life of many individuals across Europe and worldwide. DED is both underdiagnosed and undertreated. Current clinical practice in terms of understanding, diagnosing and managing dry eye may be suboptimal, representing a gap in patient care.
