Several etiologies can contribute to ocular surface pain including nociceptive, peripheral neuropathic, and central neuropathic mechanisms. Clinical clues can help identify contributors to ocular surface pain in a patient. In individuals whose pain persists despite targeting nociceptive contributors, neuropathic mechanisms should be considered and addressed using oral, topical, and/or adjuvant agents.
