The cosmetics 'crysis'
Considering the increasing prevalence of dry eye and a greater number of eye care practitioners enhancing their diagnosis and management of dry eye patients, it is interesting to note that many have almost certainly not given much thought to the cosmetics their patients use. They are also unlikely to be routinely asking questions about patients' current periocular cosmetic habits and advising on such. This lecture will review the products that are frequently used around the eye and its adnexa, focussing on the ingredients that can be found lurking within them. It will also discuss what practitioners should be advising patients in this regard.
