Brief Summary:
This is a randomized, double-masked, vehicle-controlled study of the safety and efficacy of OTX-101 (0.09% cyclosporine nanomicellar solution) in the treatment of keratoconjunctivitis sicca to be conducted at approximately 50 sites.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Tear Production [ Time Frame: Baseline and 12 weeks ]
    Percentage of Eyes with Increase from Baseline of ≥ 10 mm in Schirmer's Test Score

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Conjunctival Staining [ Time Frame: Baseline and 12 weeks ]

    change from baseline in total conjunctival staining score (lissamine green, modified National Eye Institute scale) at 12 weeks.

    Conjunctival Lissamine Green Staining Grades ranged from 0 (No punctate stain in zone) to 3 (Densely concentrated micropunctate stain spots)

  2. Central Corneal Staining [ Time Frame: Baseline and 12 weeks ]

    change from baseline in central corneal staining score (fluorescein, modified NEI/FDA scale) at 12 weeks.

    The Expanded National Eye Institute (NEI)/Industry Workshop Scale for Corneal Staining Score was used to grade each of the 5 areas of the cornea on a 0 (No punctate stain in area) to 4 (Severe diffuse (coalescent) macropunctate stain of the area) scale.

  3. Symptom Score [ Time Frame: Baseline and 12 weeks ]

    change from baseline in modified Symptom Assessment in Dry Eye (SANDE) score at 12 weeks.

    A modified SANDE instrument was used to evaluate dry eye symptoms at each visit.

    Subjects were asked to indicate:

    1. frequency of dry and irritated eyes on a scale of 0 (rarely) to 100 (all the time); and
    2. severity of dry eyes on a scale of 0 (very mild) to 100 (severe) The global symptom score is the square root of the frequency score times the severity score and will be completed at each visit. (range 0 to 100)

    Negative change from baseline indicates improvement.
