Ocular surface disease and dry eye are common, yet complex and multifactorial clinical diseases. Although meibomian gland disease surely is one of the most commonly encountered causes of OSD, there are numerous things to consider when evaluating your patients. We will review a systematic and organized system for OSD and dry eye diagnosis and treatment. We will examine these clinical entities from a number of perspectives including lid and gland status, tear film composition and its dynamics, ocular surface anomalies such as conjunctival chalasis, as well as anatomical considerations. Therapeutic approaches based upon the outcomes of comprehensive diagnostics will logically fall into place. Perhaps most importantly, we will discuss how to apply this approach into primary eye care since OSD and dry eye impact so many of our patients on a daily basis.
