Product Name: SVS20
Product Code: SVS20

Primary Outcome(s)
Main Objective: The primary objective will be to confirm that, as shown in the previous studies SVS20-99-04 and SVS20-HUN-05-01, the frequency of moderate dry eye symptoms will be significantly improved (greater decrease in the change from baseline values) in the SVS20 group compared to the saline group and equivalent to or greater than the carbomer group.
Primary end point(s): The primary efficacy endpoint will be the difference between groups for the change from baseline at D28 in symptom frequency (summed scores for soreness + scratchiness + dryness + grittiness + burning each rated on a 0–3 scale; maximum total score 15).
Secondary Objective: Secondary objectives will be to assess whether SVS20:
· Is superior to saline and equivalent to or greater than the carbomer for the efficacy parameters: symptom intensity, impact of symptoms on daily life activities, BUT, corneal staining with fluorescein, staining with lissamine green, Schirmer test, average number of daily instillations and global evaluation of efficacy,
· Is equivalent to or greater than saline and carbomer for the safety parameters: BCVA, comfort of the eye drops (presence and duration of blurred vision upon instillation), examination of ocular adnexa and adverse events reporting.
