Dry eye is a multifactorial disease of the tears and ocular surface that can result in symptoms of discomfort, visual disturbance, and tear film instability with the potential to damage the ocular surface.

Myopia (nearsightedness) is rapidly growing in prevalence and carries with it significant socioeconomic burden and potentially blinding complications, including retinal detachment, choroidal neovascularization, and glaucoma. Eye growth and myopia are regulated by a complex interaction between genetic, environmental, and behavioral factors. However, the etiology of myopia is poorly understood.
