Dry eye disease is a complex and multifactorial disease of the ocular surface. The diagnosis and management options are being increasingly studied. The aim of this paper is to document an evolving orthoptic-led service delivery model that was implemented in an ophthalmic clinic to improve patient pathways for individuals with dry eye. The service delivery model is supplemented with a case vignette which further explores diagnosis, imaging and outcomes for a patient with dry eye.
