In addition, the patient must meet certain criteria. These criteria include blurred vision, itchy burning eyes, painful and dryness of the eye. Additionally they will experience the sensation of foreign particles in the eye, redness, and the feeling of tearing.

An individual will be excluded from this therapy under certain condition. A person can be excluded if he or she has an eyelash or eyelid defect, an eyelid or eye infection, wears contact lenses, is pregnant, or has a vitamin A deficiency. Additionally, people who have undergone surgery on the eye within the past 3 months are excluded.
