Patients: This website was originally intended to be based on clinical data on eye drops alone for Eye Care and Health Care Professionals, however from its launch in March 2015 it has quickly grown to include other types of eye care products and services that Eye Care/Health Care Professionals would want to know about. This Patient section you are now in was added in May 2016 as an extra resource for patients, the main focus of the website will remain primarily on Eye Care/Health Care Professionals, however this Patient section will surely grow and help patients in certain areas of eye care.
As the name of the website is Eye Drops Database, I thought it helpful to have a page dedicated to the what Dry Eye drops can and can't do, and what you should do and what you shouldn't do with them! See the page; Dry Eye Drops - What Can They Do and How Do I Use Them? Take time to read The Joy of Contact Lenses which opens the door on the wonderful expanding world of contact lenses, interesting for past, present and future contact lens wearers.
A recently added page relate's to Clinical Trials - Can You Help?, which you may be interested in being part of, these trial are important in furthering our knowledge of how to help people benefit from our increasing expertise and technical developments and you may benefit directly. As of April 2016 current clinical trials include multi-focal Contact Lenses and how to improve the comfort of Contact Lenses, this page will change as some trials finish and new ones start.
Guest Articles were added in June 2016, the first by Ross Ferguson, Pharmacy Consultant for Eye Drops Database, entitled The Pharmacist Can See You Now, more will follow written for you as a patient, by knowledgeable authorities in their field. A number of patients expressed a interest in having easier access to specialist Eye Care Professionals and suggested the 'Referral Directories' previously primarily intended for use between Eye Care & Health Care Professionals should be made more readily available to patients, therefore In March 2018 the 'Referral Directories' were also placed in the Patient Section.
Before exploring further pages it cannot be stressed too highly that any intended user of this section of the site should read the Patient Section's Disclaimer found on this site.
The development and compilation of this website is a continuing labour of love, we hope you find it useful and interesting.
