About the Course

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!
