We selected the name Ocular Surface Disease Index (OSDI) to reflect the growing body of evidence that both Sjögren and non-Sjögren dry eye is characterized by a significant inflammatory reaction affecting the entire ocular surface.1 Although this questionnaire was originally developed and validated for the evaluation of dry eye, we believe that it may be used, as it now exists or with modification, for other ocular surface diseases including allergy. Therefore, we feel that the name is appropriate.
