Contenido del Webinar:

Maria Simó talked us through the basics of Keratoconjunctivitis Seca, from diagnostic methods to the most effective treatment options, exploring in detail how to approach this disease in a comprehensive way.

One of the main conclusions of the webinar was the importance of not relying solely on the Schirmer test to diagnose KCS. María Simó emphasised the need for a complete and detailed assessment, as well as the use of additional diagnostic tools for a correct diagnosis, as without all the information, ineffective treatments may be prescribed. She also talked about the importance of referring cases that do not resolve correctly in order to fully evaluate them.


We thank all participants for their support.

The webinar on Keratoconjunctivitis Seca with Maria Simó was a great success, and we would like to thank everyone who joined us for this educational event. We hope that this resource will be a valuable source of information for all veterinarians interested in veterinary ophthalmology. Feel free to check out the full video and share it with your colleagues.

The event, brought together leading professionals in the field and members interested in exploring this very relevant topic.

During the webinar, Dr. Teresa Peña, a renowned expert in veterinary ophthalmology and associate professor at the Autonomous University of Barcelona, gave a keynote lecture on the most commonly used ingredients in veterinary ophthalmology and their role in the treatment of various eye diseases in animals. Dr. Peña delved into the scientific evidence supporting the use of these nutraceuticals, as well as the recommended protocols for their application in daily practice. His vast experience and expertise in the field provided attendees with a clear and detailed view of how these products can benefit the ocular health of our veterinary patients.
