Quick Summary

In this randomized controlled trial, eye drops containing hydrocortisone reduced symptom severity without adverse effects among participants with moderate dry eye disease.

What was studied?

The safety and efficacy of eye drops containing either low-dose hydrocortisone or trehalose for the treatment of moderate dry eye disease.

In addition to measurements of intraocular pressure (IOP), the function of meibomian (oil-producing) glands was assessed, and the corneal fluorescein staining score (CFS) was used to evaluate the condition of the cornea.

The volume and efficacy of tear production was assessed using noninvasive break-up time (NIBUT), tear meniscus height (TMH) , lipid layer thickness (LLT), and tear break-up time (TBUT).

The Ocular Surface Disease Index (OSDI) and Symptom Assessment in Dry Eye (SANDE) questionnaires were used to assess perceived symptom severity among participants.
