Dear past COSD-workshop attendees,


Hello everyone,
I'm very happy to announce that the 10th Comparative Ocular Surface Diseases workshop (COSD-workshop) will be held from Feb 27th to Mar 1st,2019, at Niseko northan resort Annupuri in Hokkaido JAPAN. The guest speaker is Dr.David Maggs from UC Davis !! He is one of the greatest researchers and clinicians on ocular surface diseases in the world, willing to share the knowledge with us. He has been helping us with this workshop since we launched it.

What is the ComparativeOcular Surface Disease Workshop (COSDW)?


The ocular surface system is a new concept that views the corneal and conjunctival epithelia and the tear film as a functionally continuous unit. Through the blinking of eyelids, tear moisture, nutrients, mucins, and lipids form a thin film over the conjunctival and corneal epithelia. The ocular surface system is essential for ocular surface homeostasis. Although differences in tear components among dogs, cats and humans are not largely understood,

MAIN THEME

Better Defining DRY EYE of dogs and cats
