Terms of Use (eyecare professionals)

IMPORTANT: These are the terms of use specifically directed at eyecare professionals. All other users should refer to the general terms of use.

Dear eyecare professionals visiting The Dry Eye Zone:

We think most people are pretty reasonable - they have reasonable expectations from websites and they post reasonable things on bulletin boards. But there’s always a few outliers, for whom Terms of Use pages inevitably have to be written. And the really hard part is, we don’t know whether or not you personally are an outlier, so for your own good (not to mention ours!) we have to try really really hard to persuade you to read the Terms of Use, no matter who you are.

So listen up:

Read and answer all the following questions. Hint: Your answers to each question should be YES, YES, YES.

DO YOU UNDERSTAND that this website is run by patients, not doctors or healthcare professionals of any kind?

DO YOU UNDERSTAND that this website contains only what lawyers call “information”, and not one spec of what lawyers call “medical advice”?

DO YOU AGREE not to ever attempt to "practice medicine" via Dry Eye TALK or through any other Dry Eye Zone sponsored medium?

DO YOU AGREE that you will read the general terms of use and if you come into contact with patients electronically through the medium of this website (e.g. on Dry Eye TALK or in private email) you will uphold the principles outlined in those terms of use, emphasizing to any patients with whom you communicate in such media the critical importance of proper supervision by an eyecare professional?

DO YOU AGREE that if you come into contact with a patient through the medium of this website (e.g. on Dry Eye TALK or in private email) you bear the sole responsibility for your words and actions in relation to that patient?

DO YOU AGREE that if you participate on Dry Eye TALK, you will first read the user guidelines posted in the Welcome! forum, and you’ll comply with those guidelines, and do you understand that if you don’t comply with those guidelines, you may become subject to the wrath of the moderators, which may involve any manner of horrific punishments, including (but not limited to) behaviour modification suggestions and time outs?

DO YOU AGREE that if you participate on Dry Eye TALK, you do so entirely at your own risk and that your participation does not imply any endorsement or approval by The Dry Eye Zone of you or your treatment(s) or product(s)?

If you find yourself answering any of these questions NO or MAYBE or I’M NOT SURE or anything else that falls lamentably short of YES, YES YES, you need to go away, not read this site, and altogether blot it from your mind.

See? Painless.
