This summer, Southern College of Optometry (SCO) launched its new TearWell: Advanced Dry Eye Treatment Center. The standalone clinic is dedicated solely to dry eye treatment and is the first clinical facility in the area to offer the LipiFlow thermal pulsation treatment. Drs. Whitney Hauser and Alan Kabat, both known for their research and work with dry eye disorders, are the clinic’s optometric physicians. News of the clinic’s opening generated several stories in local and regional media outlets.
Also: The Eye Center at SCO was recently voted the top eyecare facility by readers of the Commercial Appeal newspaper in Memphis, Tenn. The Eye Center will be receiving the newspaper’s “Memphis Most” award in recognition of receiving the most readership votes.
