Delphinidin 3,5-O-diglucoside, a constituent of the maqui berry (Aristotelia chilensis) anthocyanin, restores tear secretion
in a rat dry eye model.
Dry eye syndrome also worsens with age because tear secretion
naturally decreases as people get older.
Table 1 An overview of the impact of omega-3 supplementation on dry eye Study details Outcome Relationship between Results suggest that a higher dietary intake dietary omega-3 and of omega-3 is associated with a decreased omega-6 fatty acids and incidence of dry eye syndrome in women clinically diagnosed dry eye syndrome in women (11) Short-term consumption Study demonstrated that oral consumption of of oral omega-3 and dry omega-3 fatty acids is associated with a eye syndrome (12) decrease in the rate of tear evaporation, an improvement in dry eye symptoms, and an increase in tear secretion
Omega-3 essential fatty Omega-3 fatty acid was associated with acids therapy for dry better TBUT and Schirmer test results.

The influence of omega-3 fatty acids appears to work especially by decreasing inflammation and stimulating tear secretion
According to our studies published since 2002, Ap4A is released from the corneal epithelium, stimulating tear production and is a physiological modulator of tear secretion
Placement of phenol thread and Schirmer strips in the lower conjunctival fornix is more commonly used to evaluate tear production in animals, and here we also suggest using the lower conjunctival fornix technique to evaluate tear secretion
in the common mynah bird.
This test measures the amount of reflex tearing and basal tear secretion
He said this causes severe pain, discomfort and inflammation of the conjunctiva and cornea of the eye, due to inadequate tear secretion
6,7) In this study, we have evaluated the basal tear secretion
by performing Schirmer3s test (with topical anesthesia).
This regulation through parasympathetic innervation results in increased tear secretion
Inflammation causes decreased ocular surface sensation, resulting in further decreased tear secretion
