Why is it important?

Knowing which factors affect the ocular surface in dry eye disease is important for developing more efficacious treatment strategies for this common disease.


Performing this kind of research where many colleagues ophthalmologists from all over the country participated in the study with El GRECO (GRoup of Evaluation of Conservants in Ophthalmology) is very exciting and promising because it represents​ a powerful tool for future epidemiologic studies on many fields in ophthalmology.
