áDry Eye University, the leader in educating practices about the ever-expanding disease management of ocular surface disease, today announced that FocalPoint Holdings, a privately-held investment and management firm specializing in healthcare and technology companies, has been selected as the preferred partner. FocalPoint Holdings and its subsidiaries will now offer Dry Eye University's network of practices its specialized consulting,management, and technology services to complement each practice's unique workflow while successfully implementing an ocular surface disease program.
Ophthalmology and optometry clinics understand the need to address this growing patient segment but do not have the time or internal resources to properly strategize and manage a prosperous Dry Eye clinic. Dry Eye University attendees will now be able to use FocalPoint Holdings team of highly-qualified consultants to efficiently launch their Dry Eye clinic by educating/training the staff, analyzing unique practice data to formulate optimal workflows, and continuously monitoring the clinic's progress for sustained growth.
"Practices want to provide their patients with the latest in innovative treatments and technology, but do not have the time or resources to put together the proper plan to make implementing a new workflow and testing protocols effective." said Dr. Anish Kapur
, President of FocalPoint Holdings. "Our team of consultants, which consists of former practice administrators, operations managers, technicians and deployment specialists, will develop a customized program for your practice and provide the necessary boots on the ground to ensure a smooth transition for your staff."
"Over the years, it has been our pleasure to host practices and share our custom approach to the management of this expanding disease segment. " said Patti Barkey
, Founder and Director of Dry Eye University.

About Dry Eye University- Dry Eye University was founded on the idea that there was a missing link in the care for the millions of dry eye patients around the world. Dry eye disease (also known as ocular surface disease) is multifactorial in nature and this adds to some chaos when it comes to practice education and implementation. Dry Eye University provides education to industry partners, providers both in the ophthalmic and optometric space as well as the staff within those offices. Dry Eye University has had the pleasure of educating individuals across the world at the programs held each year. These practices have advanced the care needed to properly manage only a portion of the millions of patients seeking assistance. DEU recognizes the job is big and there is still a lot of work to do!
