In 2005, the Sjögren’s Foundation, along with coalition partners, asked Congress to officially declare July “Dry Eye Awareness Month” to help increase awareness of dry eye, while also educate the public about symptoms and treatment options for dry eye. Chronic dry eye affects millions of Americans and 95% of Sjögren’s patients identify with having dry eyes (2021 Harris Survey). The declaration of July as Dry Eye Awareness Month helps ensure that a primary symptom of Sjögren’s gets widespread recognition. 

Every July, the Foundation works to help educate the public about dry eye symptoms and the possible cause being Sjögren’s.
