Elevate Your Approach to

Dry Eye Management

Why Attend Dry Eye University?

Approximately 16 million people suffer from Dry Eye Disease nationwide.

Treating the symptoms of DED wasn’t good enough. We wanted to understand the root cause then address the treatment based upon science, education and practical application. Our research brought us insight into the multitude of companies who today have diagnostic and treatment based solutions for this patient segment, and through trial and error we were able to integrate disease state management effectively into our patient flow.

At Dry Eye University industry experts provide updates on the latest clinical trials, real life experience and tangible takeaways that can be implemented in your practice!

What works in a successful dry eye

We have had the honor of hosting a multitude of practice teams and sharing our system approach to this ever-expanding disease segment.

Dry Eye University is an excellent program for anyone thinking of starting a new Dry Eye program or looking at ways to expand or improve their existing program. Dr. Bowden and his staff do a great job of providing advice from both a clinical standpoint as well as the practical integration into the practice.

As clinicians it can sometimes be a chore to procure nuggets of information from evidence based medicine. At Dry Eye University they did a wonderful job at distilling the information of starting and running a dry eye clinic and recommending protocols for front and back office use. We are eager to institute these principles into our own practice!

Where else can you go to learn how to expand your dry eye offering? This one of a kind program has been so desperately needed by the industry. It was a day well spent learning how to identify, test and treat dry eye patients that are already sitting in your waiting room. It is a MUST to treat these patients that will go elsewhere if their needs are not addressed. The Bowden Eye team shared everything they could with passion and conviction. All in all a fantastic program that I will recommend to my customers!

Attending Dry Eye University was one of the best choices that I could have made! Dr. Bowden and his team gave great scientific insight on how to effectively treat a very common issue, while Patti and her team taught us how to build a profitable niche treating dry eye. The vendors were great resources as well; they presented mini hands-on workshops on how to use their equipment/tools on patients. Overall, I would highly recommend this meeting to anyone interested in effectively treating dry eye!

It was a pleasure meeting Patti, Dr. Bowden and the entire staff at Dry Eye University. I couldn’t speak more highly of Dry Eye University!!! I’ve been telling all my colleagues about it. Between the lecturers and the vendors, you gave us a lot of information to work with and I sincerely appreciate it! I’ve shared your FB page with many of my colleagues.

To be honest and unbiased Dry University was simply eye opening! No pun intended. The amount of knowledge gained was a game changer in the way I practice and the way I think. It's time to bring Dry Eye out of the closet of obscurity and let the nation know that patients suffer needlessly each and everyday. We are letting our patients down by ignoring this chronic billable problem. I recommend Dry Eye University to every doctor-- ophthalmologist or optometrist that desire to move into the reality of today.

Attending Dry Eye University [twice] changed how we approached dry eye. As a result we doubled the number of dry eye patients and treatments, have happier patients, happier doctors, and increased our revenues as a result. We are doing a better job of treating dry eye thanks to what we learned at Dry Eye University.

I feel like I have more of an understanding after the DEU, I can inform our patients about the products and the reason behind all of this in a more confident and understanding way!

Dry Eye treatment is a big part of the future in Ophthalmology and the Dry Eye University showed us all of the options available to our patients…with all of the vendors on site! Presented in an exciting environment, Patti, Dr. Bowden and their staff far exceeded our expectations and did an excellent job of sharing their experiences to date!
