With nearly 300 million dry eye sufferers worldwide, dry eye represents one of the largest ophthalmic indications. It is also known as keratoconjunctivitis sicca. To date, there is no cure for dry eye syndrome, but there are treatments to control its symptoms. The prevalence of dry eye syndrome primarily increases with age, and has an estimated incidence of 15% in persons over the age of 65 years. A greater risk of acquiring dry eye is also experienced by females, with postmenopausal women being particularly at risk.
In the US alone, the economic burden of dry eye totals USD 3.84 billion in direct annual health care costs. After including the indirect costs of lost productivity, the societal burden of dry eye rises to USD 55.4 billion annually in the US. For patients, the average annual direct cost ranges from USD 678 for patients with mild dry eye to USD 1,267 for severe cases. If pharmaceuticals and punctual plugs are included, the cost for these patients rises to USD 2,959 annually. Furthermore, dry eye increases lost productivity through both absenteeism and decreased presenteeism, with the former ranging from 8.4 to 14.2 days per year depending on severity and the latter ranging from 91 to 128.2 days per year depending on severity.
