Dry eye (DE) is a common, multifactorial condition that imparts significant morbidity to patients. The term DE is an umbrella term that incorporates many different disease sub-types including immune related (Sjögrens and Graft versus Host disease), in the setting of skin conditions (rosacea), and due to aging changes of the lacrimal and meibomian glands. Each DE sub-type has its own clinical manifestations, pathophysiology, and treatment algorithms. Overall, DE manifests with a combination of symptoms and/or signs. Symptoms include ocular discomfort and pain, characterized as spontaneous and evoked “dryness”, “burning”, “aching”, to name a few descriptors, and visual complaints, such as poor and fluctuating vision. Signs of DE are diverse and include tear and ocular surface abnormalities. This special issue "Dry Eye Syndrome: New Insights on Epidemiology and Management” will highlight new insights on the various DE sub-types, with a focus on epidemiology, pathophysiology, and new treatment approaches.
