    Well, duhhhhhh, Steve!...

    ...I saw an old article on Medscape about gOMER's presentation at the 2011 annual meeting of the
    American Academy of Ophthalmology 2011 Annual and it quoted gOMER's "Vice President, Clinical Development and Chief Medical Officer": :

    "Cataract surgery is performed through the pupil, which is why it is so important to keep the pupil dilated," Steven Whitaker, MD, from Omeros Corporation, Seattle, Washington, explained to Medscape Medical News.

    "It's a lot harder for eye surgeons to operate through a small pupil than a large pupil. And, because the ketorolac is an anti-inflammatory, it can decrease the postoperative pain on the day of surgery," he said."

    ...well, gosh, Steve, I kinda suspect most people already understand that operating on a small pupil would be harder than on a large one...in fact, that's probably the reason pharmas have developed all these different EYEDROPS for pre- and post-operative use -- nearly all of which, I suspect, are cheaper than gOMER juice...now would you care to explain WHY the health care system should inflict even higher costs on the consumer by using gOMER juice?...

    ...indeed, has Steve EVER ever explained ANYWHERE why ANYONE should chose gOMER juice over the conventional eyedrops that have been used successfully the past 60-70 years?
