    We evaluated the effect of 0.1% sodium hyaluronate (unpreserved) in 10 patients with dry eyes. The precorneal tear film break-up time was assessed by the non-invasive technique, and the severity of symptoms was recorded before and after treatment on a 0 to +3 scale. It was found that the tear film stability was significantly increased (p less than 0.05) in eyes treated with sodium hyaluronate. The symptoms of grittiness and burning were also significantly alleviated in the treated eyes.
