Product: Downloadable mask-associated dry eye MADE infographic
Top Line: Efforts by the Centre for Ocular Research & Education (CORE) to educate eyecare professionals and the general public about mask-associated dry eye (MADE) have attracted widespread attention during the past several weeks. In a nod to requests from around the world for more information, CORE has now released its downloadable MADE infographic in 22 languages at COVIDEyeFacts.org. Alcon Europe provided translation services.
Close Up: CORE’s strong affirmation that responsible mask wear remains critical to public health has been central to its work. Since late August, CORE’s MADE insights have been published or broadcast in more than 20 countries on six continents, with a potential audience approaching 1 billion people. In addition to being embraced by the optometry and ophthalmology communities, MADE has also been the subject of feature stories in The Washington Post, The Mirror, CTV, Health.com, The National Post, Sina.com, Lifehacker Japan, and nearly 200 other media outlets.
“In less than a month from when we first described MADE in The Conversation, interest has skyrocketed. I think this outreach shows the essential role that ocular science and optometry can play in shaping larger healthcare discussions, including the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Dr. Lyndon Jones, director of CORE. “We thank Alcon for helping us spread the word even farther.”
Vital Stats: The MADE infographic is available in the following languages: Bosnian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hungarian, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Serbian, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish, and Ukrainian.
