Hi! My name is Rebecca Petris and I would like to personally welcome you to The Dry Eye Zone. I started The Dry Eye Company and this website in 2005 as a dry eye information portal and community center for my fellow dry eye patients. Since then, it's grown and expanded in various ways, all focused on improving quality of life for people with dry eye. It's been a challenging, humbling and fulfilling process and I am extremely grateful to all the people who have helped and encouraged me along the way!
