Rosenberg, TX (April 22, 2016) – OCuSOFT Inc., a privately-held eye and skin care company with an established reputation for innovation in eyelid hygiene and ocular health was pleased to launch a new speakers series program at International Vision Expo East in New York, NY focusing on building a Dry Eye practice featuring guest speaker Doug Devries, O.D.

The new educational series showcasing a variety of outstanding professional speakers including Doug Devries, O.D., Al Kabat, O.D. and Paul Karpecki, O.D. will be hosted in numerous locations across the United States. “How to Build a Dry Eye Practice: Incorporating Eyelid Hygiene” focuses on increasing practice revenue, patient compliance and overall patient health.  This is accomplished through the incorporation of specialty products into the optometric practice.  Also included would be in-office procedures and take-home maintenance routines for patients.  A focal point of the discussion was new OCuSOFT® Lid Scrub® PLUS Platinum with PSG-2™ and OCuSOFT® HypoChlor™ Hypochlorous acid while respectively both ridding the eyelids of bacteria and conditioning delicate periocular tissues.   The dinner event at 100 Alfredo was completely full and highlighted the experiences of Dr. Devries while developing and growing his Dry Eye practice and how encompassing new practices and new products into his existing routine positively impacted not only his practice revenue, but also the long term benefit to his patients. 

“Each Speaker Series event provides opportunities for members of the optometric community to share outlooks and views with outstanding communicators,” said Troy Smith, Vice President Professional and Technical Relations at OCuSOFT®. “We look forward to continuing our goal of improving each patient's health by bringing together professionals to discuss the most recent developments in Dry Eye care and practice building and by always providing the highest quality products for not only eye care, but also skin care”.
