Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Patients with dry eye
No treatment is prescribed for the study. Patient dry eye progression will be followed for up to 60 months. Patients may use artificial tears to treat their dry eye symptoms.
Other: Artificial Tears
Artificial tears (any brand) may be used to treat dry eye symptoms.
Patients with no history of dry eye
No treatment is prescribed for this control group. Patients will be followed for up to 60 months. If needed, patients may use artificial tears.
Other: Artificial Tears
Artificial tears (any brand) may be used to treat dry eye symptoms.

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   40 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes
Sampling Method:   Probability Sample
Study Population

At least 200 dry eye patients (with at least 40% of patients with elevated biomarkers for ocular surface inflammation) will be enrolled at approximately 15-20 sites. Approximately 40-50 patients will be enrolled in the control group.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Males at least 55 years old or females, at least 40 years old with perimenopausal symptoms
  • Baseline OSDI score of ≥ 13
  • Patients with mild to moderate dry eye (dry eye disease patients only; not applicable for control group)

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Use of any topical cyclosporine ophthalmic emulsion within 3 months of baseline
  • History of herpes keratitis or varicella zoster keratitis
  • Any history of allergic conjunctivitis
  • Temporary or permanent occlusion or cauterization of the lacrimal puncta for either eye
  • Any anterior segment surgery involving a limbal or corneal incision (cataract surgery), keratorefractive procedure (LASIK, LASEK, PRK) within 12 months of baseline, or expectation of such surgery within 2 years
  • Patients with known systemic disease
  • Any history of corneal transplant
