Abstract Purpose: To evaluate the inhibitory effects of propranolol, a nonselective and lipophilic β-adrenergic receptor blocker, on alkali-induced corneal neovascularization (NV). Methods: Corneal NV was induced in 24 eyes of 24 Wistar rats using NaOH. Following alkali burn, animals were randomized into 4 groups according to topical treatment. Group I received 0.9% NaCl, Group II received preservative-free dexamethasone sodium phosphate 1 mg/mL, Group III received propranolol hydrochloride 1… CONTINUE READING
