Reputation: the opinion that people have about a person or organization because of what has happened in the past

Hear what people are saying…

Dr. Brimer’s Dry Eye Institute is the best run, most comprehensive, detailed, and organized dry eye meeting out there. The best part is she relates it to real world practice scenarios so you can immediately incorporate it into your own practice.

Dr. Kevin Rogers, LA



I had not heard of DEI until my boss mentioned he wanted to send me out to North Carolina for it. I was expecting the usual lecture, and maybe picking up a few new tips for my treatment and management protocols. What Dr Brimer is doing, however, is an incredibly thorough and well organized look at treatment as well as how to build your practice around dry eye care and management. Seeing her evaluation process and interactions with patients has made me want to reevaluate and revamp my whole clinical setup. It was awesome from start to finish!

 Dr. Chris Snow



I just finished Dr. Crystal Brimer’s “Dry Eye Institute” conference in North Carolina. I have been to many medical conferences over the years and this was truly a unique experience. Not only did we get to know Dr. Brimer, but she got to know us and made sure that our personal goals (which she collected prior to the meeting) were fulfilled. Dr. Brimer is a tremendous resource of knowledge and advice and has a limitless passion for sharing it. You can’t go wrong attending the DEI!

 John Redmond, M.D., CT


This was probably the most informative seminar I have been to. Definitely worth the price. So much knowledge from Dr. Brimer and all her experience that is 100% useful and easy to implement into any office. Thank you for an amazing learning experience.

Dr. Joanna Chartrand, Canada


I learned so much from Dr Brimer and the Dry Eye Institute. I had read and heard about new treatments in OSD but Dr. Brimer helped me sort through it all to apply that knowledge practically in my clinic. The binder we received is full of great time saving documents, billing info, ABNs etc and will make it much easier to implement procedures in our office. I highly recommend attending if you are thinking about making dry eye a focus of your practice. It will save you a lot of time and money.

Dr. Dimple Sawhney, TX


WELL worth the time and money! Dr. Brimer lays everything out and not only tells you what you need but how to successfully implement it into your practice. You will leave empowered and inspired to treat all your dry eye patients (and everyone else’s!).

Dr. Krista Bruni, Canada


DEI is the education and hands on experience to start your own dry eye specialty in your practice. After one day with Dr Brimer, you will feel confident that you can succeed.

Dr. Michele Schraeder, PA 



We had a very good experience at DEI. Dr Brimer’s passion is very motivating and we learned a lot. I would recommend this course for anyone wanting or thinking about starting a dry eye clinic. It was very informative and makes you feel much more prepared to start the process at your own practice.

Jodi D., PA


Loved it! From the moment I arrived until I left, I got that this was actually something that I’m going to take back and implement, compared to past meetings. I have all the tools I need to succeed. Dr. Brimer provides you with the Who, Why, and How to treat dry eye. Very worthwhile, would not hesitate to recommend without reservation!

Dr. Carrie Lee, CA


My knowledge and understanding of dry eye diagnoses and treatment was tremendously improved after the Dry Eye Institute. And even better I am now confident in my ability to build a dry eye practice that provides great care to patients.


This will change your practice and your patients life forever. If you want to change the future of Dry Eye go to this Dry Eye Institute.

Tesa  Sivernall,  TX


I feel encouraged and ready to help my patients. Thanks, Crystal!

Dr. Kandi Moller, OR


As a technician at my office, I see myself as an extension of the doctor, the first and last point of contact when a patient needs help. I wanted patients to trust me with the management of their dry eye symptoms just as much as they trusted the doctor. What I lacked was confidence. After a day at the Dry Eye Institute with Dr. Crystal Brimer, I found exactly what I was looking for. Dr. Brimer did an excellent job encouraging my participation and making me feel like my presence there was just as essential as our doctors. I will now feel comfortable and informed when I work with our Dry Eye patients and help them navigate through their treatment options and their symptoms. Getting to see firsthand how Dr. Brimer herself used the equipment and instrumentation has given me a better understanding of how to use it and incorporate it into our daily pre-testing routine. Where before I simply would note the complaint of the patient for the doctor, now I feel like I can engage in a conversation with them. I know the right things to ask in order to take a complete history. I can anticipate ahead of time what type of treatment will be needed for their symptoms. The Dry Eye Institute has not only made me more valuable to the clinic and the doctors, but has given our patients another reason to know they can trust their eyes with us!

Lindsay Reyes, Ophthalmic Technician, IA


Dr. Crystal is an amazing wealth of knowledge. She cares for her patients deeply and it shows! This experience was great!

Dr. Shannon Davidson, OH


DEI provided a huge step forward toward establishing a dry eye specialty within my practice. The resources will be invaluable. And we had a good time!

Dr. Natalie Noble, PA


The most organized, useful, fun, and information filled day anyone could ask for on dry eye diagnosis and treatment. GO!

Dr. Greg Abel,  CO


If you are struggling with treating dry eye in your practice, this is an event where you can get practical diagnosis and treatment plans that are proven to work- and watch this unfold with actual patients.

Dr. Ben Mize, WV


DEI is a fantastic program that gives you all the products, verbiage, and marketing you need to really do dry eye well. It is customized to your practice and you are sent home with a plethora of printed material, samples, as well as a custom plan of what to implement next in your practice. You see everything put together in real patient exams. I highly recommend!

Dr. Melissa Barnhart, WA


Fantastic Program! The experience was exceptional! –the attention to detail and intimacy of the group, seeing everything in person and how a full dry eye eval looks and sounds. I appreciate all the resources (literature and thumb drive) and doctors’ experience. I would highly recommend.

Dr. Angela Berghoff, IN


The Notebook! It’s a great resource. This is the most comprehensive presentation on Dry Eye that I have ever seen. Very thorough on all things Dry Eye.

Dr. Kathy, Shamblin, TN

Educational and well thought out weekend. Not only does the DEI makes you think about dry eye in a different perspective, it also challenges you to think of other areas where your entire practice could grow!

Dr. Brittany Flaherty, NC


Amazing experience, learning in clinic on site with live patient examples is one of a kind!

Dr. Edward Laulainen, WA

DEI was very helpful to improve and fine tune diagnostic skills and determine the most effective treatment options.

Dr. Gene Calkins, CA


I just had one of the most incredible experiences in my optometric life. That’s saying something, after having been an OD for over 30 years. Dr. Brimer is a pro in every way and the worth of the program was much higher than the dollar amount of the training. All of us came away genuinely inspired and eager to do this.

Dr. Brimer has an over the top passion about dry eye. She wants everyone to incorporate this into their practice and be successful at it. Everything was well thought out and planned exquisitely, but a “real” experience, with no hand-picked patients. The book contained resources and information to implement best practices, and a bag with thousands in revenue product. If you want to get serious about dry eye in your practice, do this training! It will be good for you, good for your patients, and good for the profession.

Dr. Mark Maybury, CO


The most helpful dry eye continuing education I have ever been to! The hands on training was very beneficial. The entire experience was excellent! I enjoyed it very much and am looking forward to digging into my book and getting my equipment.

Dr. Robert Friese, MN

An amazing day of learning real life applications! It was a great day with an enormous amount of information given to you on how to implement dry eye care into your practice. Very well organized, very well done, and very pertinent information.

Dr. Terri Anderson, TN

Dr. Brimer personalized things to me and my practice. This experience was perfect! The entire program was excellent and would be helpful to all eye care doctors, even if they are not even wanting to concentrate on dry eyes.

Dr. Dale Burroughs, AR


Awesome, thorough, and complete program! A must for anyone wanting to up their dry eye game.

Dr. George Hertneky, CO

I so enjoyed the opportunity to spend time at the Dry Eye Institute… You are a master clinician and your approach to treating the dry eye patient population combined with your natural ability to communicate and teach creates the richest environment for doctors to learn and grow.  Thank you, again, for sharing your craft.


You truly are an incredible provider! I am so grateful for my time with you and really look forward to keeping in touch as I navigate my next step.

Dr. Rachael Garrett, OR


For anyone interested in going deeper with Dry Eye, I just spent an amazing weekend with Dr. Crystal Brimer at The Dry Eye Institute. I cannot say enough wonderful things about my experience. It was such a customized, hands on, personalized program. I would highly recommend attending!

After attending the dry eye Institute I feel confident that I have the knowledge, the skills, and the confidence to really implement a Dry Eye protocol to best take care of patients.
                                                                                      Dr. Betsy Fraser, SC


DEI was very organized. They provided a true turnkey approach to take home and begin seeing patients immediately. Take away information and products are amazing! Personalized attention to every individual! Dr. Crystal Brimer is amazing.

We stayed at Wrightsville Beach for a few days. Fun town and great experience. Dry Eye Institute is perfect for all levels of dry eye implementation. She customizes to you and your needs. Loved our weekend there. I would recommend going!

Dr. Jennifer Poole Wilcox, GA


Such a great experience!!  You can tell she meticulously planned to the very last detail!

Dr. Jennifer Lesslie, SC


What an amazing day!  The level and quality of Dr. Brimer’s Dry Eye Equation workshop was absolutely outstanding and it offered tremendous educational and clinical value in a world of standard seminars and lectures.  Nearly every minute was packed with practical and smart hands-on training and one-on-one advice.  I returned from this experience with a wealth of applicable knowledge and samples of nearly every component of the Dry Eye Equation.  The wealth of information that was provided is alone worth far more than the registration fee, but the added benefit of numerous billable items that are turn-key, ready to use in the office is far beyond any expectations!  This has to be, by far, the most meaningful and financially worthwhile workshop that I have ever attended.

Dr. Erika Brown, NC


I have to tell you what a wonderful time that I had and how every dry eye already looks “different” than prior to the seminar.  That was the best educational experience I have ever had!  (Not to mention the most enjoyable.)

You have not heard from me because I have been busy attempting to implement new things (though I have no idea how you could make it any easier).
Dr. Sarah Knapp, MI


Thank you again for being so generous with your time and knowledge. Your hospitality and generosity were such treasures. I haven’t stopped talking to my patients about the experience and what I will be able to do for their dry eyes.
Dr. Brimer shows it all! Even if you think you are providing dry eye care to your patients, the training obtained at the Dry Eye Institute will only improve your care. A clear, logical, step-by-step approach to what you need and what you need to know to start or improve your dry eye care is what you will get at this workshop.
I have come away with a deeper appreciation for providing patients with this life-changing service!
 Dr. Tina Reeves, NY



What a great experience at the Dry Eye Institute! I’ve been working on my diagnosis protocol since returning to Oregon and am very pleased. I’ve also been testing some of the language that Crystal uses. –Solid gold!!

Dr. Jim Hale, OR


By far the best course/workshop to shed light on the complexity of dry eye and how to delivery dry eye as a “main course” and not a “side item!”

Dr. Kiarash Bassiri, NC


Crystal provided an organized turnkey approach to diagnosing, treating, and managing dry eye patients–and their expectations!

Dr. Valerie Ricciardi, MA 

One thought on “Reputation: the opinion that people have about a person or organization because of what has happened in the past

  1. I had the pleasure of being part of Dr. Brimer’s inaugural DEI. The information that we got during that weekend in February has been golden and I do mean golden. For the first time in my practice career, I can identify exactly what is going on with my patients from a Dry Eye perspective. Additionally, the patient buy in has been phenomenal. Dr. Brimer did a masterful job of making a very complex subject both patient and doctor friendly. The materials that you leave with will leave you speechless. First class, well done and great weekend. Thank you Dr. Brimer! It was money well spent and the return has been amazing!
