The Shift to Dry Eye
As a board-certified ophthalmologist with a special interest in ocular surface disease, Dr. Zimski spent many years in private practice where she saw an increasing number of patients struggling with eye discomfort, redness and fluctuating vision. Finding that common recommendations such as artificial tears were rarely effective, Dr. Zimski decided to seek out better solutions through research studies, conferences, and engaging thought leaders in the ocular surface disease space. With various treatment options available in the market, she wanted to bring the best new technology into her practice and to integrate it in a stepwise approach to achieve the best results for her patients.
