  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We treated 42 eyes with corneal epithelial dis-orders by sustained wear of collagen shield with additional instilltion of physiologic saline of aque-ous antibiotics solution. The series included diffuse superficial keratitis 4 eyes, corneal erosion 26 eyes, persistent corneal epithelial defect 7 eyes, bullouskeratopathy 2 eyes and other 3 eyes. The treatment induced improvement in the clinical findings within 2 weeks in 31 eyes (74%). Bullous keratopathy, or subepithelial edema, failed to respond. The obser-ved beneficial responses to collagen shield seemed to be due to bandage and lubrication effects to the corneal surface.
