New Study Shows Unique Dietary Supplement With Omega Fatty Acids Holds Promise For 30 Million Americans Who Suffer From Dry Eye
Date:7/25/2013

phen C. Pflugfelder, M.D., professor of ophthalmology, James and Margaret Elkins chair, director of The Ocular Surface Center, Baylor College of Medicine-Cullen Eye Institute and co-principal investigator of the trial. "HydroEye clearly had a positive impact on these patients with moderate to severe dry eye."

"Achieving statistical significance in a dry eye study is a remarkable accomplishment, especially given the extreme difficulty that many highly regarded pharmaceutical companies have had in bringing a prescription dry eye product to market," said John D. Sheppard, M.D., M.M.Sc., president, Virginia Eye Consultants, professor of ophthalmology, clinical director of the Lee Laboratory for Ocular Pharmacology at Eastern Virginia Medical School, and co-principal investigator who initiated this research project. "This was a prospective, randomized, multicenter, placebo-controlled trial as would be any U.S. Food & Drug Administration registration clinical study."

Dry eye is estimated to affect 30 million Americans, but the actual number of dry eye sufferers is thought to be much higher because cases of dry eye tend to be dramatically underreported. In the U.S. alone, the economic burden of dry eye totals $3.84 billion in direct annual health care costs. When including the indirect costs of lost productivity, the societal burden of dry eye rises to $55.4 billion annually in the U.S.

Moderate to severe dry eye can significantly deteriorate the quality of life for those who suffer from the condition. In fact, prior research concluded that the impact of dry eye on quality of life was rated as the equivalent to unstable angina (chest pain related to heart disease). Dry eye is associated with a number of risk factors including age, gender, computer use, smoking, exposure to dry environments, LASIK, contact lens wear, air pollution, many common medications, and diabetes mellitus.
