Dear eyecare professionals visiting The Dry Eye Zone:
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 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.
