A masterwork of Chinese ophthalmologist Ju Sha Chengta: "interpretation of clinical guidelines for Ophthalmology - dry eye"


Ocular surface diseases generally refer to a series of diseases that damage the normal structure and function of keratoconjunctiva. Dry eye is one of the important diseases, which has gradually attracted the attention of clinical ophthalmologists in recent years. With the changes of people's living environment, lifestyle, work intensity and the popularization of electronic equipment, the incidence rate of dry eye in China has reached 21% ~ 30%, and the demand for treatment of dry eye has also increased year by year. The interpretation of clinical guidelines for Ophthalmology - dry eye, edited by Professor Liang Qingfeng of Beijing Institute of Ophthalmology, jointly formulated by a number of doctors with rich clinical experience in China and published by the people's Health Publishing House, makes an in-depth interpretation of PPP (preferred practice patterns) of the second edition of the American Academy of ophthalmology in combination with the actual situation in China.


Nowadays, the medical industry is booming, and many research results not only deepen people's understanding of diseases, but also provide great help to clinical work. Dry eye has become one of the research hotspots at home and abroad because of its high incidence rate, unclear pathogenesis, long treatment cycle and difficult to cure. However, how to draw from the vast amount of basic research, clinical experience and academic exchanges at home and abroad, the clinical diagnosis and treatment norms of dry eye suitable for China's national conditions, provide unified and authoritative normative guidelines for medical places with different conditions, and improve the curative effect and quality of life of patients with dry eye is the joint goal of ophthalmologists, experts and scholars in China.

In view of this, Professor Liang and experts jointly completed the interpretation of clinical guidelines for Ophthalmology - dry eye. The book strives to be in line with international standards in the preparation process, which reflects the high level and development direction of dry eye diagnosis and treatment in the world. At the same time, in order to help Chinese doctors fully, efficiently and accurately understand the key points, deepen their understanding of dry eye, systematically master the standardized diagnosis and treatment process, and make the guide more Chinese characteristics, the guide was jointly formulated by many doctors with rich clinical experience in China, which is in line with the actual situation of our country and plays an important guiding role in the clinical practice of doctors at all levels in our country, So as to provide more high-quality and standard medical services for the majority of patients.

The completion of "interpretation of clinical guidelines for Ophthalmology - dry eye" is the crystallization of collective wisdom. In the process of compiling, all experts expressed their opinions and repeatedly revised them for unified opinions. In addition to the busy clinical and scientific research work, they completed the compilation of this book with a highly serious and responsible attitude. At the same time, I would like to thank Zhang Zijun for his outstanding contribution in the chart making of this book. In addition, the smooth publication of the book is also inseparable from the support and contributions made by the editors and all staff of the people's Health Publishing House!

The contents of the book try to meet and solve the needs of most dry eye patients in China. However, due to China's vast territory, various etiologies and complex pathogenesis of dry eye, the guide does not represent the best answer to the clinical problems of all dry eye patients. In order to further improve the level of diagnosis and treatment in the field of dry eye in China, as well as the revision and supplement during the reprint of the book, please put forward your valuable opinions from readers and experts.
