Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Mean Change From Baseline in Tear Break-up Time (TBUT) at 60 Minutes [ Time Frame: Baseline, 60 minutes ]
    Fluorescein dye was instilled in the eye to assess tear break-up time. After instillation of the fluorescein, the subject was instructed to blink 3 times, then stare and not blink. The investigator measured the time from the last blink until the first black (dry) spot appeared in the precorneal tear film. Tear break-up time was assessed prior to test article instillation (baseline) and at 60 minutes. Three consecutive measurements were taken per eye at each time point, with the average of the 3 scores being the value analyzed. An increase in total score equates to improvement. One eye was chosen as the study eye and only data for the study eye were used.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Area Under Curve (AUC) of TBUT From 0 to 60 Minutes [ Time Frame: 0 to 60 minutes ]
    Fluorescein dye was instilled in the eye to assess tear break-up time. After instillation of the fluorescein, the subject was instructed to blink 3 times, then stare and not blink. The investigator measured the time from the last blink until the first black (dry) spot appeared in the precorneal tear film. Tear break-up time was assessed prior to test article instillation (baseline) and at 5, 15, 30, and 60 minutes. Three consecutive measurements were taken per eye at each time point, with the average of the 3 scores being the value analyzed. An increase in total score equates to improvement. One eye was chosen as the study eye and only data for the study eye were used.
