Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Itching [ Time Frame: 10 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Ocular itching, as assessed by the subject, was graded on a 6-point scale: 0=did not occur; 1=once; 2=at least once on two days; 3=at least once every day; 4=two or more time every day; 5=virtually all the time over the past three days.

  • Hyperemia [ Time Frame: 10 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Ocular hyperemia (redness) was assessed by the investigator for the palpebral conjunctiva and the bulbar conjunctiva. Hyperemia was assessed using a 6-point pictorial scale ranging from 0 (representing no hyperemia) to 5. The palpebral and bulbar conjunctival scores were summed together for a total hyperemia score.
