Dry Eye in the US and Around the World
My dad sent me (the one with the severe eye problems!) this interview, and it is pretty interesting, though I wonder what our friends here in the Pacific NW would say about the claim that that area is not a "dry-eye hot spot."
"According to National Woman’s Health Resource Center, the number dry eye hot spot was Vegas and five of the top ten dry eye hot spot cities were in Texas. Also high as dry eye hot spots were major metropolitan areas such as Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Miami, Pittsburgh and Phoenix. In California, Bakersfield, Fresno and Sacramento were ahead of Los Angeles and San Francisco. The Pacific Northwest was mostly absent from the hot spot list, as were states with low populations such as Wyoming and Maine."
