The National Eye Institute's Office of Science Communications, Public Liaison and Education can help answer questions, whether you are a patient, family member or friend, health care professional, researcher, or student. We provide evidence-based information to help you better understand the diseases and conditions you or your loved ones may face. However, our service is not a substitute for seeking the advice of a health care professional.

We cannot provide personalized medical advice to individuals about their condition or treatment.
