eople's quality of life. This is what Jeff would want us to do and there's no better tribute to him than to continue his work."

Neil Donnenfeld adds: "Jeff was blessed with extraordinary intellect and dedication. He combined the two and made a significant difference in the world. He had no greater satisfaction than to hear that one of AVR's products helped a dry-eye sufferer - and he heard that frequently. His legacy will live on through the relief that dry-eye sufferers receive when they use one of his products. We have lost a giant of a man."

In the summer of 1976, as a medical student, Dr. Gilbard met his first patient with dry-eye and decided something had to be done. What began as a summer research project turned into one of the most productive dry eye research programs in the world. In 1978 he received project grant funding from the National Eye Institute, and to this day he remains the youngest scientist in history to have received such funding. His research program had one goal - to develop an eye drop for dry eyes that really worked.

"Jeff Gilbard was an innovative, gifted ophthalmologist and researcher, who made several important contributions to our profession," said Dr. Edward Holland, director of Cornea Service at the Cincinnati Eye Institute. "He was the first person to understand the importance of tear film osmolarity and his development of hypotonic artificial tears containing bicarbonate and potassium is a landmark event in the treatment of dry eye disease. Dr. Gilbard was on the forefront of the treatment of ocular disease and nutritional supplements. Dr. Gilbard's legacy will be the scientific papers he authored, the revolutionary products he developed to help patients with ocular surface and retinal disease and most notably the people whose lives he'll continue to improve."

Born on February 19, 1954 and raised in Roslyn, New York he was the son of a self-educated New York
