My Dry Eye Handbook The Ultimate Dry Eye Treatment Review

I usually find books written on this category hard to understand and full of jargon. But the writer was capable of presenting advanced techniques in an extremely easy to understand language.

Overall my first impression of this ebook is good. I think it was sincerely written and looks to be very helpful.

Keratoconjunctivitis Sicca

Keratoconjunctivitis sicca is a dry eye syndrome commonly associated with an underlying systemic autoimmune disorder such as Sjogren's syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, or HIV infection. However, it must be included in the differential of ocular allergy, especially in perimenopausal and postmenopausal women. Tear production decreases with age 60 fewer than at the age of 18. The eye produces approx 400 drops of tears per day. It is characterized by an insidious and progressive lymphocytic infiltration into the main and accessory lacrimal glands. Patients initially complain of a mildly injected eye with excessive mucus production. Symptoms include a gritty, sandy feeling in the eyes compared to the itching and burning feeling many patients complain of with histamine release into the eye. As the cornea becomes involved, a more scratchy and painful sensation as well as photophobia may appear. The corneal epithelial injury can be detected with punctuate staining with fluorescein. The...

Blepharoconjunctivitis

Blepharitis is inflammation of the eyelid margins that is most often misdiagnosed as an ocular allergy because it commonly causes conjunctivitis as well. Infection or seborrhea are common causes. As in patients with atopic dermatitis, the most important organism isolated from the lid margin is Staphylococcus aureus. Antigenic products and not the colonization itself are thought to play the primary role in the induction of chronic eczema of the eyelid margins. The symptoms include persistent burning, itching, tearing, and a feeling of dryness. Patients commonly complain of more symptoms in the morning than in the evening. This is in contradistinction to patients with dry eye syndromes, who complain of more symptoms in the evening than in the morning because of drying out of the tear film during the day. The crusted exudate that develops in these patients may cause the eye to be glued shut when the patient awakens in the morning. The signs of staphylococcal blepharitis include dilated...

Ophthalmic Procedures And Testing

The Schirmer's tear test is the most commonly used and easily performed test for the evaluation of dry eye. Tear production is assessed by the amount of wetting seen on a folded strip of sterile filter paper after it is placed into the conjunctival sac. The patient is seated with the room lights dimmed and is then asked to look up as the lower eyelid is gently pulled downward. Excess moisture and tears are dried along the eyelid margin and conjunctiva with a sterile cotton-tipped applicator. The rounded end of the test strip is bent at the notch approx 90-120 degrees and is hooked into the conjunctival sac at the junction of the middle and lateral one-third of the lower eyelid margin. The patient's eyes remain closed throughout the examination. The test strips are removed after 5 min. The length of the moistened area from the notch to the flat end of the sterile strip is measured using a millimeter ruler or the scale imprinted on the test-strip package. Some of the test strips have a...

Disorders

Future developments in the treatment of ocular allergy include research into the use of immunophilins such as cyclosporine. Cyclosporin A is a fungal antimetabolite that can be used as an anti-inflammatory agent. Topical cyclosporine has been approved for topical treatment of patients with dry eye syndromes (tear film dysfunction), but its potential may also be in the treatment of ocular allergy as well. Cyclosporine has been shown to inhibit mast cell mediators such as histamine and mast cell-leukocyte cytokine-induced cascades. It reduced the number of neutrophils, eosinophils, and lymphocytes infiltrating the conjunctiva 24 h after challenge with compound 48 80, a well-known mast cell-degranulating agent. In addition, FK-506, a hydrophobic macrolide lactone, is of special interest in ophthalmology because it may be effective in the treatment of a variety of immune-mediated diseases such as corneal graft rejection, keratitis, scleritis, and ocular pemphigoid (Table 4).
