- Is using any systemic or topical medications that will affect ocular health except for artificial tears;
- Has an active ocular disease other than DES, or Sjögren's syndrome
- Has any clinically significant lid or conjunctival abnormalities, neovascularization, corneal scars or corneal opacities;
- Has limbal or bulbar injection or corneal staining that was clinically significant, which are not due to DES;
