Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in the Keratoconjunctival Staining Score From Baseline [ Time Frame: Basekine, 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Keratoconjunctival staining indicates the damage to the corneal and conjunctival epithelium. The cornea and conjunctiva were divided into 3 and 2 fractions, respectively, each of which was given a staining score from 0 to 3, and the total score was calculated (0-15). 0 is better.

    The change from baseline at the end of instillation (LOCF) in the keratoconjunctival staining score were compared between the 2% rebamipide group and the 0.1% sodium hyaluronate group using a t-test.
