Abstract

With the popularity of cataract and refractive surgery, especially the increasing implantation of advanced technology lens implants, dry eye significantly affects image quality.In 2017, the Asia-Pacific Association of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons (APACRS) produced the new Principles of Preferred Practice for the Management of the Ocular Surface in Cataract and Refractive surgery (hereafter referred to as the PPP). This document provides detailed evidence-based discussions on the incidence rate, pathogenesis, diagnosis, evaluation, clinical symptoms, and treatment of dry eyes during perioperative period of refractive surgery and cataract surgery.The article which interpreted the PPP is aimed to remind general ophthalmologists to pay more attention to the dry eye in cataract and refractive surgery, and make the management of the ocular surface more standardized.
