Why is it important?

With the COVID-19 Pandemic, it is difficult to manage in person consultations for the bulk of dry eye patients. Up to a third of adult people in the population suffers from dry eye. However, specialised eye care can only look after a small percentage of these people.


Healthcare services are stretched during the pandemic. Telecare services can help to provide care for the bulk of dry eye patients who are stable.
