The Music City Dry Eye Symposium (MCDES) will focus on one largely overlooked aspect of eye care: the role of the biofilm in dry eye disease (DED). The symposium will include didactic presentations with panel discussion and a half day interactive wet lab session.
The meeting will bring together subject matter experts among ophthalmologists and optometrists to share with fellow eye doctors about the recently discovered cause of dry eye. The symposium will discuss how elimination of biofilm can profoundly impact the severity and chronicity of blepharitis and subsequent dry eye.
Ophthalmologists and optometrists, fellows, student, office staff and healthcare professionals interested in the role of the biofilm in DED.
