Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in Global Ocular Staining Score at Day 35 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Day 35 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change from baseline in global ocular staining score (range from 0-15) at Day 35. The global ocular staining score is the sum of three different staining severities, each with a score of 0-5 on a 6-point scale, where 0 is no staining (best) and 5 is diffuse staining (worst).


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in Ocular Surface Disease Index (OSDI) Questionnaire Score at Day 35 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Day 35 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change from baseline in Ocular Surface Disease Index (OSDI) questionnaire score at Day 35. The OSDI questionnaire consists of 12 questions measuring the presence of ocular symptoms. Each of the 12 questions is assessed using a 5-point scale (where 0=none of the time and 4=all of the time). The score is converted to a 0-100 point score where 0 is no symptoms and 100 is most symptoms.
