About the Japan Dry Eye Society

The Japan Dry Eye Society was established in 1990 to support research into, and clinical treatment of, dry eye—a condition increasingly observed in clinical settings. In 1995, the Society issued its first “Definition and Diagnostic Criteria of Dry Eye Disease (DED),” later releasing two revisions before the current 2016 version. The organization regularly hosts academic conferences and workshops, and published its “Dry Eye Diagnostic Guidelines” in the Japanese Journal of Ophthalmological Society in 2019 (Volume 123, No. 5). Members also continue to collaborate with global dry eye specialists during international conferences to hammer out an international definition of DED conforming to clinical standards.

The Japan Dry Eye Society will continue to deepen research into DED while providing society with accurate information on this disease.
