Description: This presentation is the Dr. Donald R. Korb Award lecture to the Contact Lens and Cornea Section of the AOA. I have chosen to focus upon the topic “initiating innovation,” because Donald Korb, OD, has an extraordinary record of initiating innovation. From pioneering the modern soft contact lens, to describing giant papillary conjunctivitis, lid wiper epitheliopathy and meibomian gland dysfunction (i.e. the major cause of dry eye disease in the world), to discovering diagnostic devices and treatment approaches for eyelid and tear film disorders, and to teaching the world the importance of blinking, there have been very few people who can even begin to match Dr. Korb’s innovative accomplishments. He is truly an amazing clinician scientist and an outstanding role model. It is a very special honor for me to present this AOA Award lecture on the development of novel treatments for dry eye disease (DED)
