Abstract

Asia Dry Eye Society (ADES) is the leading dry eye academic organization in Asia.Based on Dry Eye Work Shop (DEWS)Ⅰin 2007 and DEWSⅡin 2017 released by Tear Film and Ocular Surface Association (TFOS), ADES developed a systematic study on the definition, diagnosis, classification and managing strategy of dry eye in Asia during past seven years.A new classification consensus report of Asia dry eye was finally proposed in 2020, which is helpful for ophthalmologists and patients to understand the pathogenesis of dry eye and make the identification and precision therapy of dry eye clearer and more feasible.New Perspectives on Dry Eye Definition and Diagnosis: A Consensus Report by the Asia Dry Eye Society on The Ocular Surface in 2017, and A New Perspective on Dry Eye Classification: Proposal by the Asia Dry Eye Society on Eye and Contact Lens in 2020 are guidelines for dry eye management in Asia.These two consensuses were interpreted in this paper, including new concepts and methods of the definition, diagnosis, classification and treatment of dry eye.
