Dry Eye Center of the Central Coast
Dry eyes can be irritating, frustrating, and most importantly, can negatively affect your vision. Research shows dry eye sufferers read more slowly and react more slowly when driving compared to normals. Dry eye disease is an extremely prevalent and increasingly common disorder of the eye that affects a wide patient population, including kids! Dr. Schachter is an expert in the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of this disease. His passion for dry eye management is evident in his continued research into the topic and his status as a consultant and Key Opinion Leader for many companies across the nation. He is one of only eight US-based global ambassadors for the Tear Film Ocular Surface Society (TFOS), and his expertise is sought after nationwide.
