PURPOSE To investigate the penetration of topically applied levofloxacin 0.5% and ofloxacin 0.3% eyedrops into the aqueous humor of patients having cataract surgery. SETTING Hochkreuzklinik Eye Hospital, Bonn, Germany. METHODS In this randomized, investigator-masked study, 69 patients received 4 drops of either levofloxacin 0.5% or ofloxacin 0.3% eyedrops within 1 hour (60 min, 45 min, 30 min, and 15 min) of elective cataract surgery. Aqueous humor samples of at least 50 muL were drawn from… CONTINUE READING
