Comparative toxicity of preservatives on immortalized corneal and conjunctival epithelial cells.

Abstract

PURPOSE Nearly all eye drops contain preservatives to decrease contamination. Nonpreservatives such as disodium-ethylene diamine tetra-acetate (EDTA) and phosphate-buffered saline are also regularly added as buffering agents. These components can add to the toxicity of eye drops and cause ocular surface disease. To evaluate the potential toxicity of these… (More)
