  • Purpose: Previously, we reported carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) binding to human corneal epithelial cells and promoting corneal epithelial wound closure in vitro. Using an animal model, the efficacy of CMC in promoting corneal wound healing was examined. Materials and Methods: Following corneal epithelial wounding of NZ white rabbits, CMC (0.2% or 1.0%) or control vehicle (PBS) was administered topically (4 times daily for 3 days) to wounded and unwounded eyes with or without contact lens wear… CONTINUE READING
