Abstract

Sjogren's syndrome (SS) is an autoimmune disease affecting the lacrimal glands resulting in dry eye disease (DED). Ophthalmologists may be the first line of detection of Sjogren's syndrome given the frequency of DED in SS and that dry eye is often the presenting symptom. Numerous symptom questionnaires and tests have been developed to help diagnose DED, but as of yet, there is no “gold standard.” Minimally invasive objective metrics are needed for a reliable diagnosis of DED. Currently there is no single test to diagnose SS-associated DED. Although there are several approaches to treatment, none are specific for DED in SS, and, generally, several methods need to be tried to find what works best for a specific patient. Treatment for DED continues to be an unmet medical need, especially given that DED in SS is typically on the severe end of the spectrum.
