Diagnosing KCS

Keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS) is a scientific term for “dry eye”. Tears are vitally important in helping to keep the cornea, the clear outer covering of the eye that lets in light, healthy.

KCS occurs when tears cease to be produced in sufficient amounts or the quality of the tear film diminishes due to evaporation. This results in the loss of the function of tears. With KCS, the cornea is deprived of oxygen & nutrients and becomes irritated. Infection can then set in, which can lead to corneal damage and possibly blindness.

Many cases of keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS) continue to go undiagnosed or untreated. Proper diagnosis and management can only be provided by specialized professionals, with the assistance of effective diagnostic tools and reliable treatment options.
