Which conditions actually make up Dry Eye Disease?
Yes Dry Eye Disease is multifactorial - we know the definition from Tear Film and Ocular Surface Society DEWS II.

Many conditions have the same symptoms as Dry Eye Disease and they also disrupt the homeostasis of the tearfilm but not ALL should be considered to be Dry Eye Disease.
