Abstract

Purpose:The present study aimed to compare the prevalence of dry eye disease (DED) among visual display terminal users using the revised and previous DED criteria.Methods:This cross-sectional study included 561 participants (187 women).Results:The distribution of diagnostic status according to the previous DED criteria was as follows: definite DED (n = 65, 11.6%), probable DED (n = 303, 54.0%), and non-DED (n = 193, 34.4%). According to the revised criteria, 329 participants (58.6%) were classified as DED and 232 participants (41.4%) were classified as non-DED.Conclusions:The prevalence of DED among visual display terminal users has increased to 58.6% from 11.6%, according to the revised DED diagnostic criteria of the Asia Dry Eye Society.
