- Dry Eye SRs
- Although a number of systematic reviews on dry eye have been published, the quality of these reviews remains unclear. We will characterize and appraise the methodological quality of systematic reviews on interventions for dry eye. The purpose of our study is to evaluate the current available evidence on interventions for dry eye, state the strengths and limitations and formulate recommendations for improving future review conduct.
