DRy Eye Outcome and Prescription Study


Brief description of study

The DRy eye Outcome and Prescription Study (DROPS) is a large observational multicentre study exploring the 'real world' effectiveness of artificial tears in dry eye disease and determinants of efficacy. The aim is to include at least 635 symptomatic dry eye patients who are prescribed artificial tears. All trainees and fellows in London are invited to become collaborators: collaborators are asked to consent patients, assess signs at baseline, and give patients questionnaires at baseline and 4 weeks (for home completion). In tandem, we are conducting a qualitative review of ophthalmologists' prescribing behaviours for dry eye disease.
