Scientists study dry eye disease in women

The U.S. National Institutes of Health has given an Ohio State University optometrist nearly $1.7 million to study dry eye disease in postmenopausal women.

Kelly Nichols, the grant's lead investigator and an associate professor of optometry, said her team will study 500 women, age 50 or older, during the next five years in one of the largest studies focusing on the causes of dry eye disease, which affects nearly 12 million U.S. citizens.

Yesssss. I have little doubt that the increase in publicity for dry eye over the last year or so has played a role in this. More, more, more please!!!!!!!
