At work

talk with your employer

  • Ask your doctor to write a note for your employer regarding your eye condition and then talk with your employer about work options that might help make your day more comfortable. (e.g. a text to voice reading program to allow you not to have to read with your eyes at all time, a standing desk, a different computer monitor or position, vents to be redirected, a humidifier).

conversations with coworkers

  • Talk about your moisture retention eyewear. You probably already have talked with them before!

  • Talk about the difference between mild dry eye symptoms and dry eye disease. It’s about more than just drops!
