Suffering over 15 years with Dry Eye, and almost losing hope, Susie visited multiple ophthalmologists trying to find relief. Eventually even her primary ophthalmologist, unable to help, told her not to return.
Susie’s Dry Eye journey finally began to improve after finding a specialist in Tampa, FL via an internet search. At that point, her eyes felt as if they had crushed glass in them. She was completely blind outdoors, very light sensitive indoors, and in constant pain.
