Yes, it’s finally coming. . . an update to the TFOS DEWS Report! 10 years after launching the original Dry Eye WorkShop (DEWS), TFOS is planning the sequel: DEWS II. DEWS II will update the definition, classification and diagnosis of dry eye disease, critically assess the etiology, mechanism, distribution and global impact of this disorder, and address its management and therapy.
During the next few months TFOS will seek to raise funds to support this initiative and will appoint a Steering Committee. This Committee will finalize the DEWS II mission, select additional Workshop participants (~ 70 experts from around the world), establish detailed objectives and decide upon a timeline.
If you would like to recommend participant(s) in DEWS II, please send your recommendation(s) to Dr. David Sullivan and explain the rationale for each individual. We hope to launch DEWS II this Fall. Thanks for your consideration. For more information about Sponsorship opportunities, please contact Amy Gallant Sullivan .
