OC Dry Eye Support Group

The Southern California/Orange County Dry Eye Support Group provides helpful information for people who suffer from dry eyes. Our group began in 2006 as a continuation of the UC Irvine Dry Eye Support Group. There is help and hope for those who live with this frustrating and painful condition and each speaker at our meetings provides new and different ideas on how to treat dry eyes.  New studies are being conducted to better understand the reason for dry eyes.  Our meetings are an excellent way to stay informed about current information that could be beneficial.   We encourage dry eye sufferers to attend our meetings and discover practical ways to make a positive impact on their lives.
