We met up with Editorial Board member Bennie Jeng, who updated us on the exciting recent developments in dry eye disease and several new therapies are in development in the US. Dr Jeng talked about his experience with scleral contact lenses, which have proved particularly useful for very severe dry eye patients with GVHD and Stevens-Johnson disease in his clinic. There is still unmet need for patients with chronic severe dry eye disease patients, including access to scleral contact lenses and also recognising and understanding neuropathic pain. A better understanding of the mechanisms behind dry eye disease will help to develop new treatments. Questions: 1. What have been the most significant recent developments in the area of dry eye disease? (0:29) 2. Discuss the current unmet needs and/or the challenges you face when treating patients with dry eye disease. (1:53) 3. What developments are you most excited about in the area of dry eye disease over the next few years? (3:10) 4. Which presentations/data have interested you the most at this year’s WOC? (3:58)
We caught up with Dr Emilio de Almeida Torres Netto, of the University of Zurich, Switzerland, at the WOC annual meeting 2018. Dr de Almeida Torres Netto was recently awarded the ICO-Allergan Advanced Research Fellowship Award for his work in corneal biomechanics, keratoconus, and cross-linking, which he discusses in this video. Questions: 1. You were recently granted the ICO-Allergan Advanced Research Fellowship Award, could you tell us a bit about your research for this award?
