4 Steps to Beat Eczema Most eczema sufferers believe that there is no cure for their eczema. If you define “cure” as a magic pill that you take one time and you will never have any symptoms ever again, then you’re right, there is no cure.

3. “Many of you seem to think you can go on with life as normal immediately after I dilate your eyes, but it’ll be two or three hours before you can do anything that requires concentrated visual attention.

If you wear contacts, ask for UV coating.” — Stephen Cohen, OD, past president of the Arizona Optometric Association
