  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Persistent corneal epithelial defects are often found in patients with bacterial corneal ulcer treat-ed with antibiotics. We treated two cases of serious corneal problems following bacterial infection; one was persistent epithelial defect and the other was perforation after stromal melting. Successful corneal resurfacing and termination of the stromal melting were achieved by collagen shields contain-ing antibiotics. Use of collagen shields containing antibiotics is one of the methods of choice for the treatment of serious corneal disorders due to bacte-rial infection.
