Chronic Dry Eye In America: What Is That?

Thank you for your interest. The 2022 Chronic Dry Eye In America survey is now closed.

Are you one of the millions of people dealing with chronic dry eye? Whether you are just starting treatment or have been undergoing treatment for years, we want to hear from you.

A chronic dry eye diagnosis can be challenging. To learn more about the challenges of this condition, we are conducting our annual survey. By taking our survey, you can bring awareness to the realities of life with chronic dry eye.

What is the survey about?

The survey covers basics like diagnosis and treatment experiences but also dives into the nitty-gritty, like the emotional impact and the day-to-day challenges of managing chronic dry eye. We hope to learn more about all things chronic dry eye, including quality of life, costs, and complementary and alternative treatments you may have tried.

Why should I take the survey?

Each person who takes the survey contributes to a better understanding of chronic dry eye awareness and knowledge, and can help others who are dealing with chronic dry eye to feel less alone. Sharing your experiences through the survey can reveal the similarities and differences between each person’s journey with chronic dry eye and can bring greater awareness to this condition that affects millions of Americans.

What will the survey ask me?

The survey will ask about things like:

  • Diagnosis
  • Symptoms
  • Symptom management
  • Quality of life and relationships
  • Healthcare professional engagement
  • Treatment awareness and experience

We do not require your name, address, or other personal information.

Please note that you do not have to take the survey all at once. Feel free to bookmark the survey in your internet browser and return when you are able. You will resume where you left off.

How do we use the In America survey data?

Survey responses help us and our partners better understand the chronic dry eye community. All survey responses are kept confidential, reported only in total (your specific responses will not be reported individually), and will become property of Health Union, LLC.

What happens after I take the survey?

After the survey closes each year, the Editorial Team at takes your responses and creates an infographic to share the community's experiences and highlight important findings from the survey.

But that is not all – throughout the year, we publish articles and videos based on learnings from the survey. We hope this survey-driven content contributes to the information available to those affected by chronic dry eye,and helps them connect with those who have walked the same path.

One voice may seem like it will not make a difference, but each voice can change how others perceive chronic dry eye and bring comfort to someone coping with a diagnosis.
