We are actively monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak. Although the University of Notre Dame has delayed classes for students, our event will be held on campus as scheduled, and we look forward to seeing you there!
We have taken extra precautions to ensure the safety of all who attend, and have made arrangements for seating of attendees to be at 6-feet intervals within the event space.
In our practice, roughly 12% of our patients are diagnosed with ocular surface disease, but many more experience dry eye symptoms that go un-diagnosed. Could your patients be missing out on treatment options to address their O.S.D. symptoms?
