Further study details as provided by Makoto Inoue, Kyorin University:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Grading scale of superficial punctate keratopathy [ Time Frame: one year ]
    The degree of superficial punctate keratopathy was assessed by the area and density classification which was scored with the area of superficial punctate keratopathy graded from A0 through A3, and the density graded from D0 through D3.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Score of wearing glasses [ Time Frame: one ear ]
    The score of wearing glasses was graded 2; all day, 1; more than half day, 0; none of the day.

Enrollment: 24
