    I'd never heard of this. Thanks for sharing. This treatment appears to be fairly experimental (the article is 10 years old), to my knowledge this is not offered anywhere. The surgery also looks very invasive, I'm sure there are many risks. However certainly the idea of bodily implants of various kinds has been considered by researchers, such as one study in which electrodes were surgically placed on the lacrimal glands (of rabbits) to stimulate the efferent nerves to secrete tears (via remote)

    Have you tried the True Tear device? That seems like the closest thing to this surgery and a lot less invasive.
