Abstract• Background: The purpose of the investigation was to ascertain the prevalence of dry eye in new outpatients. • Methods: A total of 2127 consecutive new outpatients seen in eight Japanese centers from April 1992 to January 1993 underwent comprehensive examinations, including double vital staining and measurement of tear film break-up time, basal tear secretion, and tear clearance. Dry eye was diagnosed if patients had abnormalities of both the tear film and the ocular surface. • Results…

TLDR
Qualitative and quantitative disorders of the tear film were far more common than recognized in this population of elderly subjects, meibomian gland dysfunction and conjunctivochalasis were found as frequent factors in relation to dry eye disease with meIBomian grand dropout showing positive correlation with tear instability.
Estimating the prevalence of dry eye among Indian patients attending a tertiary ophthalmology clinic
TLDR
McMonnies' indices (MMI), OSDI and the values recorded in Schirmer's tests were all significantly and positively correlated with the probability of a clinical diagnosis of dry eye (P<0.001 for each).
Prevalence of dry eye in University Malaya Medical Centre.
TLDR
Two hundred outpatients attending the University Malaya Medical Center (UMMC) eye clinic, aged 20 years and above and without any ocular surface disorder were recruited for this study, and presence of dry eye as detected by clinical testing is higher in the Chinese race.
Prevalence of dry eye among adult Chinese in the Beijing Eye Study
TLDR
The dry eye symptoms as evaluated subjectively in a questionnaire occurred in about 21% of the adult population in China, with associations to age, female gender, urban region, and undercorrection of a refractive error.
A study of assess the prevalence of dry eye and its associated risk factors in a tertiary care hospital
TLDR
Proper counseling of the patients regarding the chronic nature disease with long term treatment and preventive measures are necessary to relieve ocular discomfort and ensure patient satisfaction with a better quality of life.

TLDR
Most of the patients have mild to severe dry eye, and VDG (TV and laptop) contact time of more than 2 hours were associated with increased odds of developing DED.
Current Trends in the Recognition and Treatment of Dry Eye: A Survey of Ophthalmologists
TLDR
There are positive attitudes toward accepting that persistent dry eye is an inflammatory disease; therefore, there are increases in use of an anti-inflammatory agent for treatment.

TLDR
In 52 patients with KCS symptoms, either with or without tear volume reduction as measured by Schirmer's basic secretion test, a statistically significant increase in water evaporation rate from the tear film when compared with normal subjects is found.
