TFOS DEWS II pain and sensation report.
Ocular pathogen or commensal: a PCR-based study of surface bacterial flora in normal and dry eyes.
TLDR
Atypical ocular surface bacteria including Rhodococcus erythropolis, Klebsiella oxytoca, and Erwinia sp.
Signal transduction and control of lacrimal gland protein secretion: a review.

TLDR
Cholinergic agonists and VIP also stimulate lacrimal gland fluid secretion, and the same signal transduction pathways utilized by these agonists to stimulate protein secretion are most likely used for electrolyte and water secretion.

Dry eye after refractive surgery
TLDR
Dry eye may result infrequently in impaired wound healing and decreased optical quality of the cornea, but it is transient, lasting from a few weeks up to 1 year.
Ca2+-dependent inhibition of NHE3 requires PKC alpha which binds to E3KARP to decrease surface NHE3 containing plasma membrane complexes.
TLDR
The results suggest that PKCalpha is not necessary for the Ca2+-dependent formation of the NHE3 plasma membrane complex, although it is necessary for decreasing the membrane amounts of N HE3, probably by stimulating NHE2 endocytosis.
Regulation of tear secretion.

TLDR
It is hypothesized that secretion of all layers of the tear film and all orbital glands and ocular epithelia that secrete tears is regulated and that the cAMP-dependent signal transduction pathway plays a pivotal role in this regulation and, except in the main lacrimal gland, Ca2+ plays a secondary role.
Stimulation of goblet cell mucous secretion by activation of nerves in rat conjunctiva.
TLDR
It is concluded that conjunctival goblet cell mucous secretion can be neurally mediated and could serve as an immediate response to protect the ocular surface.
