Invention Title: Improvements in Tear Film Stability. The statin based therapeutic safely and successfully treats both the causes and symptoms of blepharitis and associated dry eye. In many patients, blepharitis co-exists with dry eye and exacerbates patient suffering. Statins have well known cholesterol-lowering and immunomodulatory properties, however the use of statins as a topical ocular therapy for dry eye and blepharitis is novel. The method provides extended break up time to the tear film thus increasing its stability. Multi-billion dollar market.
