Rosenberg, TX (June 26, 2023) – OCuSOFT Inc., a privately-held eye and skincare company with an established reputation for innovation in eyelid hygiene is pleased to announce the continued partnership with Prevent Blindness in support of July as Dry Eye Awareness Month to raise awareness and provide free educational resources on dry eye risk factors, symptoms, treatment options, and more.
In an effort to educate the public on Dry Eye, Prevent Blindness, the nation’s leading nonprofit eye health organization, has declared July as “Dry Eye Awareness Month.” Information is available on Dry Eye risk factors, symptoms, and treatment options through a variety of resources, including fact sheets and shareable social media graphics, available in English and Spanish, and a dedicated web page: https://preventblindness.org/understanding-dry-eye.
This year, Prevent Blindness is offering a new episode of the Focus on Eye Health Expert Series, “Dry Eye and Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD),” featuring April Jasper, OD, FAAO, Advanced Eyecare Specialists. Dr. Jasper shares her unique experience as a Dry Eye patient as well as an eye care provider. MGD is a condition when the eyelid glands do not produce enough oil, or it is of poor quality.
“Dry eye is a serious condition that may have long-term effects on eye health, if left untreated,” said Jeff Todd, President and CEO of Prevent Blindness. “We encourage patients to talk with their eye doctors about their dry eye symptoms, and work together to form an effective treatment plan to keep eyes healthy for years to come.”
