PURPOSE To evaluate the influence of fortified antibiotic eyedrops on corneal epithelial wound healing. METHODS We developed an in vitro epithelial wound-healing model to evaluate the toxicity of antibiotics. An excimer laser was used to create an epithelial defect 1.5 mm in diameter, 70 microm in depth on the central area of porcine cornea. The intact animal globes were maintained in the incubator by a perfusion system. Fortified antibiotics: 10% piperacillin, 5% cefazolin, 0.5… CONTINUE READING
