Rosenberg, TX (June 29, 2022) – 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.
Dry eye disease (DED) is a condition that occurs when tears do not provide adequate lubrication for the eyes. The discomfort that results from dry eyes may affect vision. And, according to the National Eye Institute (NEI), if severe dry eye goes untreated, it can sometimes damage the cornea, the clear outer layer at the front of the eye. Prevent Blindness, the nation’s leading non-profit eye health organization, has joined with OCuSOFT® to declare July as “Dry Eye Awareness Month” to provide free resources to providers and the public on dry eye, including fact sheets and shareable social media graphics available in English and Spanish, and a dedicated web page.
“Dry eye can have lasting, damaging effects if left untreated,” said Jeff Todd, President, and CEO of Prevent Blindness. “An exam by an eye care professional can equip patients with a treatment plan that protects vision and improves mental health.”
