Details and patient eligibility

About

The study aims to test the safety of Repetitive Magnetic Stimulation (RMS) treatment for dry eye disease. Patients are asked to undergo a one-time treatment with Epitech Ocular Magnetic Stimulation Device on one eye in the first stage and both eyes sequentially in the second stage of the study. Changes are monitored for over a study period of 3 months.
