The Outstanding Dry Eye Practice Award from Eye Eco

At Eye Eco we want to highlight some of the doctors who are as committed as we are to helping dry eye patients find relief. That is why we started a new campaign to acknowledge doctors by presenting them with Eye Eco’s Outstanding Dry Eye Practice Award.

Dry eyes affect more than 40 million Americans, but less than 5% of people have been properly diagnosed with Dry Eye Disease. Dry Eye Disease can cause many health issues including obscured vision, dry skin, and even blindness. It can be caused by many things – including time looking at screens. For most of us that activity isn’t going away anytime soon.

Eye Eco is dedicated to finding natural solutions that provide relief from dry eyes. We use the latest studies and findings to develop our products and then test them. All our products are proven effective. Dry eye can have several causes, figuring out the cause is an important step in finding the best treatment option to relieve dry eyes. That is why regular visits to an eye care professional are so important.

Optometrists and Ophthalmologists do incredible work to make sure we can clearly and comfortably see everything in our lives. Some of them go above and beyond when it comes to treating dry eyes.

The Eye Eco Outstanding Dry Eye Practice Award is presented to eye care practices that are dedicated to treating dry eye and helping patients find relief. Each recipient of the award receives a stunning hand blown glass sculpture in the shape of a tear.

We asked the doctors what they thought about winning the award and treating dry eye and here are some things they shared.

“We​ ​were​ ​really​ ​excited​ ​to​ ​get​ ​the​ ​award.​ ​We​ ​devote​ ​a​ ​good​ ​deal​ ​of​ ​our​ ​resources​ ​into​ ​treating dry​ ​eye.​”
Dr. Larry Golson of Envision Eyecare

“​We​ ​just​ ​started​ ​back​ ​in​ ​February​ ​getting​ ​really​ ​on​ ​board and​ ​aggressive​ ​with​ ​dry​ ​eye​ ​and​ ​it​ ​has​ ​just​ ​taken​ ​off!​ ​Patients​ ​are​ ​so​ ​thankful​ ​that​ ​we​ ​don’t​ ​just glass​ ​over​ ​their​ ​problem​ ​and​ ​we​ ​actually​ ​do​ ​something​ ​about​ ​it.”
Dr. Tania Sobchuk of Lake Havasu Family Eyecare

“I have a patient that has been struggling with dry eye for years and couldn’t find relief. She heard about our dry eye practice through a friend and finally scheduled an appointment with me. After a few visits she was not only more comfortable but seeing better than she had in years. She said she kept putting off coming to see us because she didn’t think she would ever find relief. Now she says she tells everyone that there really is relief for dry eyes!”
Dr. Sasha Narayan of Northern Minnesota Eye Care

“It’s​​ ​​an​​ ​​honor.​​​​​ We​​ ​​never​​ ​​get​​ ​​recognized​​ ​​for​​ ​​treating​​ ​​our​​ ​​patients.”
Barbara Dieterichs from Total Eye Care New Mexico

“Good​ ​dry​ ​eye​ ​care starts​ ​with​ ​asking​ ​enough​ ​questions​ ​and​ ​asking​ ​the​ ​right​ ​questions​.​ ​Then​ ​really​ ​take​ ​time​ ​to develop​ ​a​ ​customized​ ​plan​ ​for​ ​the​ ​individual.​”
Dr. Larry Golson of Envision Eyecare

“Ensure​ ​that​ ​your​ ​eyelids​ ​are​ ​healthy​ ​first​ ​of​ ​all,​ ​then​ ​together​ ​we​ ​can work​ ​on​ ​producing​ ​healthy​ ​tears.”
Barbara Dieterichs from Total Eye Care New Mexico

“Take​ ​the​ ​time​ ​to​ ​educate​ ​patients​ ​about​ ​the​ ​disease,​ ​share​ ​that​ ​artificial​ ​tears won’t​ ​help,​ ​that​ ​they​ ​need​ ​to​ ​go​ ​to​ ​the​ ​cause​ ​(which​ ​is​ ​almost​ ​always​ ​MGD)​ ​and​ ​they​ ​need​ ​to​ ​be consistent​ ​and​ ​aggressive​ ​with​ ​treatment.”
Dr. Tania Sobchuk of Lake Havasu Family Eyecare

“At one point, [a patient] actually texted me personally and said, ‘This is the best my eyes have felt, ever!’”
Dr. Larry Golson of Envision Eyecare
