CONCLUSION: It seems that for HF injury 1% CG did not have any significant advantage over saline irrigation and topical treatment only. It might have some initial and temporary effect on healing process especially that involving erosion. Given subconjunctivally, 1% CG may be toxic and worsens clinical outcome.
I started my career in emergency nursing nearly 20 years ago. That's when I was introduced to the Morgan Lens and began using them when I needed to irrigate the patient's eyes. In my current role as an ED Director,
I orient our new staff. Occasionally one of the new nurses is unfamiliar with Morgan Lenses. I'm always excited to tell them about the Morgan Lens and how they greatly simplify eye irrigation. It's efficient for the nurse and effective and comfortable for the patient. That's an unbeatable combination.ED Educator (Florida)
The Morgan Lens is used in 90% of hospital emergency departments in the USA and can be inserted in less than 20 seconds. There simply is no other "hands-free" method of eye irrigation. Nothing else frees medical personnel to treat other injuries or to transport the patient while irrigation is underway. Nothing is more effective at treating ocular chemical, thermal, and actinic burns or removing non-embedded foreign bodies, even when the patient's eyes are closed tightly. Its design makes it simple and straightforward to use so minimal training is required.
