Your photo representing the itching, burning and discomfort of dry eye — literal or abstract — can win you a $200 travel grant to Optometry’s Meeting.  Allergan is offering 97 of the travel grants to Washington, DC,  this summer, along with three larger grants to the top three photos.  Photos will be judged by the AOSA’s Social Media Committee and winners will be notified May 15.  Winners will receive their grants at the meeting.

A desiccated cornea is represented by the desert wasteland devoid of moisture. Wind and dust exacerbate symptoms of burning and irritation in dry eye patients.
