A guinea-pig model of corneal jellyfish envenomations.

Corneal jellyfish stings are painful, self-limited injuries which usually produce conjunctival hyperemia and chemosis, corneal edema, and mild iridocyclitis with resolution in 48 hr. We have developed a guinea-pig model of corneal jellyfish stings in order to study pathogenesis of human injury. Guinea-pig eyes were exposed to sea nettle (Chrysaora… (More)
