EyeWorld recently gath- ered ocular surface disease (OSD) experts to discuss clinical rec- ommendations for acute exacerbations of dry eye disease. Participants discussed evolving thera- peutic solutions to im- prove understanding of the signs and symptoms associated with episodic flares of OSD, making therapeutic decisions for patients through variable stages of OSD, unmet needs, and the relevance and mechanism of action (MOA) of mucus-penetrat- ing nanoparticles (MPP). Eric Donnenfeld, MD, moderated the panel, which included Edward Holland, MD, Richard Lindstrom, MD, Elizabeth Yeu, MD, Preeya Gupta, MD, and Terry Kim, MD.
