The Dry Eye Clinic at Valley EyeCare Center


The Dry Eye Clinic at Valley EyeCare Center is committed to the specialized diagnosis and treatment of dry eyes and ocular surface disorders. Dry eye is one of the most under-diagnosed eye conditions and if left untreated can lead to vision loss. Dry eye affects approximately 20 million Americans and occurs twice as often in women. It alone accounts for nearly 25% of all visits to an ophthalmologist. There is no cure for the condition but there are several effective treatment options available at the Dry Eye Clinic that can provide relief and improve quality of life.

Dr. Michael Gagnon is an Eye Physician and Surgeon who has devoted a significant portion of his practice to the treatment of dry eyes. He is the founder and the director of the Dry Eye Clinic. In his private office at the Valley EyeCare Center in Pleasanton and Livermore, Dr. Gagnon specializes in treating patients with dry eyes and corneal disease.
