In 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Dry Eye Boot Camp is going virtual and will be combining programs with the Twin Cities Ocular Surface Disease Symposium led by Ahmad Fahmy, OD.  While there is nothing that can truly capture everything that a live, inperson event offers, there is still a tremendous need for dry eye disease education during the pandemic. A virtual platform will allow a much larger audience to access practical education and implementation strategies. Visit the Everything Dry Eye Virtual Symposium.

About Dry Eye Boot Camp



Dry eye disease has become increasingly important to almost every aspect of eye care. Chronic and progressive, dry eye impacts visual performance, contact lens success, surgical outcomes, and patient quality of life. Standard CE courses, while important and necessary, rarely provide a call to action for doctors sitting on the sidelines, or for those that need just a little more confidence before embracing dry eye in their practices. Dry Eye Boot Camp was created to fill this void. Over 700 eye care providers have attended Dry Eye Boot Camp!
