Conjunctival epithelium improvement after systemic pilocarpine in patients with Sjogren's syndrome -- Aragona et al. 90 (2): 166 -- British Journal of OphthalmologyThis study concludes:
"Oral pilocarpine induced an increase in goblet cells number and an amelioration of conjunctival epithelium not dependent on tear secretion."
Yea, but how 'bout those side effects! I can't imagine using oral pilocarpine in anyone but the more desperate dry eye patients.
