Abstract

Bandage lenses, a complete tarsorrhaphy, chloramphenicol 0.5%, and sodium chloride 2% were tested for their effect on corneal epithelial wound healing in rabbits. The healing rate was decreased with bandage lenses and increased by tarsorrhaphy. There was no significant effect on healing rate with either chloramphenicol or hypertonic saline.
