Government subsidy for Restasis eye treatments

This petition had 45 supporters

With increased use of technology dry eye is a growing problem. Currently Australian patients using Restasis eye drops and ointment don't receive a subsidy of any kind. Restasis is not covered by private health insurance either. Restasis is the second best seller for Allergan, the company that makes it in the USA, following their best seller Botox. Clearly the demand is huge. Dry eye sufferers like myself cannot function fully without suitable treatment. It is time to make Restasis freely available to Australian consumer and have it subsidised.
