Dry Eye Resources & Support Groups


California Dry Eye Support Groups:

The Sjögren's Syndrome Foundation

https://www.sjogrens.org/

Founded in 1983 the SSF provides patients with practical information and coping strategies that minimize the effects of Sjögren's. In addition, the Foundation is the clearinghouse for medical information and is the recognized national advocate for Sjögren's.

 

Not A Dry Eye Foundation

https://www.notadryeye.org/

The Not A Dry Eye Foundation is proud to be the only, patient-driven, non-profit foundation focused on raising awareness of Dry Eye Syndrome. Our mission is simple, to raise awareness of the disease and to give people hope. We know how devastating it can be to lose hope and how crucial it is to find help. And because we experienced the debilitating symptoms of Dry Eye alone, we know how important it is to connect with others like ourselves.

 

The OC Dry Eye Support Group

https://ocdryeyesupportgroup.org/

The Southern California/Orange County Dry Eye Support Group provides helpful information for people who suffer from dry eyes. The 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. The meetings are an excellent way to stay informed about current information that could be beneficial.
