Dry eye is a chronic disease that may begin in childhood

Dry eye is a chronic disease that may begin in childhood
Primary Care Optometry News, May 2017

Blepharitis is one of the few diseases that lasts a lifetime, James M. Rynerson, MD, told Primary Care Optometry News. “We wouldn’t possibly think that for an 80-year-old with dry eye disease, the problem started when they were a baby.”

Rynerson believes the process of blepharitis and, hence, dry eye, begins in infancy, when a biofilm forms on the lids in the first few months to years of life.
