This is a single center, randomized, controlled clinical trial to evaluate the tolerability, efficacy, and safety of eyelash prostheses over a 3-week period versus Xiidra BID over a 5 week period in subjects with self-reported DED. 40 subjects will be randomized to either eyelash prostheses or Xiidra, in a 1:1 ratio.
At Visit 1 (screening), informed consent will be obtained from subjects and eligibility will then be determined. All pre-treatment assessments will be done at this visit. Randomization will occur. If randomized to receive Xiidra eye drops, a prescription will be written and the treatment will be started right away. If randomized to eyelash prostheses, then a second study visit will be made approximately 2 weeks later.
Visit 2 (Eyelash Prostheses application) Subjects randomized to receive eyelash prostheses will have them applied approximately 2 weeks after the screening and randomization visit.
Visit 3 (Final visit) will be 3 weeks post eyelash prosthesis placement and 5 weeks post Xiidra eye drop initiation. This was done to compare the maximal treatment effect between the two groups. All subjects will undergo post-treatment assessments.
At each visit, patients will be asked to report any adverse events.

Eyelash prostheses are essentially specialized eyelash extensions
Active Comparator: 5.0% Lifitegrast Ophthalmic Solution
Each subject in this arm will receive 5.0% Lifitegrast eye drops BID
Device: 5.0% Lifitegrast Ophthalmic Solution
5.0% Lifitegrast Ophthalmic Solution
- Non-inferior change from baseline in tear break up time as measured by the Oculus Keratograph in the interventional subjects compared to the active control subjects [ Time Frame: The primary endpoint will be assessed 3 weeks after eyelash prosthesis placement in the interventional arm and 5 weeks after initiation of eye drops in the active comparator arm ]A non-inferiority endpoint in tear break up time
- Non-inferior change in tear meniscus height as measured by the Oculus Keratograph in the treatment subjects compared to control subjects [ Time Frame: The secondary endpoint will be assessed 3 weeks after eyelash prosthesis placement in the interventional arm and the interventional arm and 5 weeks after initiation of eye drops in the active comparator arm ]Non-inferiority endpoint in tear meniscus height
- Non-inferior change from baseline in SPEED II questionnaire in the treatment subjects compared to the control subjects [ Time Frame: The secondary endpoint will be assessed 3 weeks after eyelash prosthesis placement in the interventional arm and the interventional arm and 5 weeks after initiation of eye drops in the active comparator arm ]Non-inferiority endpoint in the SPEED II questionnaire
