Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Patients With Complete Clearing of Corneal Staining at Month 12 [ Time Frame: Month 12 ]
    Percentage of patients with complete clearing of corneal staining at month 12. Corneal staining is evaluated following administration of fluorescein dye into the eye. Complete clearing is defined as the absence of corneal staining.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Schirmer's Test at Month 12 [ Time Frame: Month 12 ]
    Schirmer's test at month 12. The Schirmer's tear test is performed on the eye with or without anesthesia (numbing eye drop). The amount of tears produced by the eye in 5 minutes is measured in millimeters by means of a graduated paper scale. Data not reported due to limited number of patients with Schirmer's test data recorded.
