PURPOSE This study sought to evaluate the efficacy of bevacizumab (Avastin), an anti-VEGF agent, in the reduction of corneal neovascularization in a rodent model, and compare between the effect of intraocular and subconjunctival injection. METHODS Corneal neovascularization was induced by application of a mixture of 75% silver nitrate and 25% potassium nitrate to the corneal center of the right eye of 125 mice. Immediately thereafter, 75 eyes were treated with subconjunctival, anterior… CONTINUE READING
