Through a strategic partnership with Dry Eye University, PECAA has developed an all-encompassing, comprehensive learning experience that walks Members through the process of building a dry eye profit center in a matter of months.
Participating Member practices will learn, through a combination of live events, online module courses (powered by Dry Eye Access) and coaching consultations, how to build a thriving dry eye service, elevate their standard of care, and generate profitable change within the practice.
Participating practices can expect to discover:
- Clinical Education for Doctors
- Interactive Staff Training Opportunities (billing, scripting, role playing, and more.)
- Equipment Selections
- Facility Layout Consultation
- Vendor Selection Overviews
- Marketing Implementation & Referral Outreach Application
PECAA’s Dry Eye Program was designed to allow practices to capitalize on their existing opportunities.
The PECAA Member exclusive-cost to participate is $799. This includes a one-year subscription to PECAA Vendor Partner Dry Eye Access for your entire office, regularly scheduled training and educational calls, ongoing support and will cover one individuals registration fee and all meals at our Dry Eye University live event.
Each additional attendee you’d like to participate in the Dry Eye University live event will be charged $299.

Why Build a Dry Eye Profit Center?
One in every eight adults, or 33 million Americans, have some form of Dry Eye Disease. The average yearly spend on DED is over $2 billion, yet this complex, multifactorial, progressive, and chronic disease has historically gone underdiagnosed—or undiagnosed.
Practices are leaving potential revenue on the table and not delivering the quality of care these patients deserve. 90 Days to Dry Eye helps practices understand how to properly identify, diagnose, and treat patients with Dry Eye Disease.
WHAT TO EXPECT
DRY EYE UNIVERSITY LIVE EVENT
During the two-day live education experience, delivered through Dry Eye University, attendees are able to expand on what they’ve already learned in the Dry Eye Program at their own pace, in their own way, in their own time. Developed by experts in Dry Eye Disease from Bowden Eye, each module is thoroughly researched and validated through years of in-the-trenches clinical practice.
