Throughout the month of Ramadan, Muslims fast during daylight hours, abstaining from food or drink. There is some concern among Muslims that using eye drops breaks the fast, so some stop taking their eye drops. The IGA runs an annual campaign advising Muslims to continue using their eye drops during the month. This survey aims to identify the level of confidence or awareness among eye care professionals about this topic. Thank you so much for taking the time to complete the survey.
