Some people may not bring up their dry eye symptoms, or how these symptoms affect their daily activities, because they did not think these are signs of a disease. But because Chronic Dry Eye (CDE) is a disease, any possible symptoms or signs should be discussed with your doctor.
Many doctors will say that the doctor-patient relationship is a dialogue. They don't want to do all the talking—they need to hear from you. Taking the Ocular Surface Disease Index (OSDI©) Questionnaire before your visit and bringing the results with you will make it a lot easier to have a dialogue with your eye doctor about Chronic Dry Eye.
Show your results to your eye doctor.
