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 just wanted to tell you that your device you gave me in San Francisco has already gone into action with great success. A heavily infected, perforated eye, 24 hours old, with starting panophthalmitis (trauma with a wooden chip from a pork stable!) arrived yesterday. After surgical repair I fitted your Morgan Lens and started with Chloramphenicol, Decadron in lactated Ringer's solution. To my great astonishment, the eye today had quieted down, the patient was without any pain, and the panophthalmitis seems to have disappeared to a large extent. I wished I could donate you an automated perimeter in return!Physician-Ophthalmologist (Switzerland)
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.
