Enhance the Induction of Keratoconjunctivitis Sicca in Mice, Rabbits, and DogsThis poster was presented at ARVO 2016 by Absorption Systems.

Purpose

Dry eye syndrome, or keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS), affects millions of people worldwide. The dry eye condition causes ocular irritation, blurred vision, ocular surface diseases, and the risk of corneal ulcerations. Complementary animal models of KCS including rodents, rabbits, and dogs were developed to evaluate new therapies. The utilization of environmental parameters was assessed for its impact in helping accelerate the KCS condition.
