Dr. Brimer is a graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill and Southern College of Optometry, a Fellow of the AAO, and a primary clinical investigator. She owns a specialty dry eye clinic in Wilmington, NC, dedicated to treating dry eye differently. Dr. Brimer is devoted to the development of equipment and protocols that help doctors differentiate the underlying causes of ocular surface disease and create successful outcomes. She was the co-creator of the Vision Source Dry Eye Protocol and integral in designing the Oculus 5M software platform and Crystal Tear Report. After seeing the day-to-day struggles offices experienced with the implementation of dry eye, she went on to create the Dry Eye Institute. Here, she hosts doctors from across the country for a small, hands-on, interactive OSD retreat to establish a firm foundation and deliver ongoing resources for successful implementation and outcomes. Dr. Brimer enjoys publishing articles and traveling, both nationally and internationally, to lecture and consult within the field. In her downtime, she enjoys time on the water with her dog and being a member of the US Coast Guard Auxiliary.
