Dry Eye Sufferers Petition for Research

Dry eye sufferers are petitioning Federal Minister for Health the Hon Sussan Ley MP for urgent research and funding for severe dry eye disease and corneal neuralgia.

A petition online at change.org details the impact of severe dry eye and corneal neuralgia and states that “patients are in desperate need of better treatment, accurate testing, better clinical studies and more comprehensive protocols than what is currently being offered”.
