  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Fifty-five eyes with dry eye syndrome were treat-ed by diathermic coagulation of the lacrimal duct. Sustained improvements in subjective and objective signs resulted in 46 eyes (83%). This procedure appeared to be indicated for cases with positive Rose Bengal test showing deep staining of the bulbar conjunctiva and the cornea and for those with decreased lacrimal secretion showing less than 5mm staining by Schirmer's test.

Another group of 35 eyes with dry eye syndrome were treated by topical instillation of human lyso-zyme solution (0.5 mg/ml) refined from human placenta.
