The Morgan Lens has been used on children as young as six months of age. Pediatricians have often reported that the child often will fall asleep once irrigation is started and the irrigating solution begins to soothe the injured eye. Even adults find it difficult to fight the body’s natural reflex action and they try to squeeze the injured eye shut.

Our purpose was to determine whether chelation of Ca2+ and Mg2+ is the mechanism by which sodium citrate inhibits corneal ulceration in the alkali-injured rabbit eye.
Chemical burns are associated with significant morbidity, especially anhydrous ammonia burns. Anhydrous ammonia is a colorless, pungent gas that is stored and transported under pressure in liquid form.
300 rabbit corneas were burned for – 1 minute by applying a filter paper of 10mm diameter soaked in different concentrations of NaOH. The aqueous humor pH was then measured at certain time intervals and after different treatment methods until the physiologic pH of 7.6 was reached.
Chemical burns of the eye are one of the most common eye injuries. The extent of the ocular surface damage is influenced by the type, temperature, volume, and pH of the corrosive substance and duration of exposure.
Chemical Eye Injuries in the Workplace. Prevention and Management
Chemical injuries of the eye may produce extensive damage to the ocular surface epithelium, cornea, and anterior segment, resulting in permanent unilateral or bilateral visual impairment.
The first step in treatment of chemical injuries to the eyes is immediate, thorough, and if necessary, prolonged irrigation. Ophthalmologic consultation should be obtained early in the course of treatment, and in severe injuries an anterior chamber tap (paracentesis) may be of benefit.
This study tested the hypothesis that four ocular irrigating solutions were equally irritating during copious irrigation. We conducted a prospective, double-blind study of patients with chemical exposure to the eye.
The Morgan Lens was investigated as a continuous corneal perfusion system in New Zealand white rabbits. Gentamicin concentration in the cornea and aqueous humor delivered by the Morgan Lens was compared to gentamicin drops (13.6 mg/ml) administered every 15 or 30 minutes.
We have previously shown the pharmacokinetic value of delivering gentamicin to the rabbit anterior segment using the Morgan Therapeutic Lens. The present study utilized an intrastromal injection model of Pseudomonas keratitis to test the therapeutic efficacy of continuous flow delivery of gentamicin with the Morgan Lens.
Proparacine (P), 0.5%, is often applied topically to the eye to diminish the pain of injection of anesthetic for eye surgery; however, application of 0.5% P itself can cause some degree of discomfort. This study evaluated the use of balanced salt solution to dilute P before instillation in the eye to prevent discomfort.
Chemical and thermal eye burns account for a small but significant fraction of ocular trauma. The speed at which initial irrigation of the eye begins, has the greatest influence on the prognosis and outcome of eye burns. Water is commonly recommended as an irrigation fluid.
This article presents the use of the Morgan Lens using text and photographs, as well as providing general information on chemical eye burns.
A case of hydrofluoric acid (HF) burns of the eye is reported and a review is presented of our investigation into the mechanism of HF toxicity in ocular tissues.
Evaluation of the patient with an acute eye problem begins with documentation of the level of vision in each eye, except in the case of a splash injury. In such cases, immediate copious irrigation is of critical importance.
Hydrofluoric acid burns are usually due to accidental exposure. Deep tissue injury may result, damaging nerves, blood vessels. tendons, and bone.
A Morgan Lens, which is traditionally used for short, 1-to-2-day treatment of corneal alkali burns, can be used for longer periods of up to 15 days, according to physicians here.
A series of ocular HF burns were produced in rabbits in order to clarify the nature of the injury and to provide a description of the animal model. Burned eyes were evaluated clinically and allowed to progress for up to 65 days before histologic examination.
Minimizing pain and discomfort in an important consideration in pediatric ocular decontamination. The pH of an irrigant solution plays a significant role in its tolerability, because a solution with a pH that is too low or too high may cause edema and discomfort to the conjunctiva.
Acids and alkalis were instilled into the eyes of 2 groups of rabbits; the eyes of one group were washed with tap water 30 s after exposure. Damage seen in washed and unwashed eyes was not always related to pH.
Most personal defense sprays contain o-chlorobenzylidene malononitrile (CS), w-chloroacetophenone (CN), oleresin capsicum (OC), or a combination of these ingredients as the active agent.
Ocular trauma is not uncommon. Because the tissues associated with visual function are delicate and remarkably specialized, care of ocular injuries is best left to well-trained specialists.
Chemical burns to the eye are among the most urgent of ocular emergencies. The clinical outcome of the injury is directly related to the expediency with which treatment is begun.
The toxicity of D-lactate has been recognized for almost 30 years. This compound is found in the racemic mixture of lactated Ringer’s solutions routinely used for peritoneal dialysis and the resuscitation of trauma victims.
Two cases of chronic Stevens-Johnson’s disease are presented: one treated by the older method of blepharoplasty, the other treated by rehydration of the cornea with the Morgan ® Therapeutic [medi-FLOW®] Lens and a vinyl headband.
The Morgan Lens* was designed as a sterile disposable scleral contact lens which provides ocular lavage and medication to the conjunctiva and cornea.
The Efficacy of Calcium Gluconate in Ocular Hydrofluoric Acid Burns
To evaluate two solutions, lactated Ringer’s (LR) and a balanced salt solution (BSS Plus, Alcon Laboratories, Ft. Worth, TX), compared with normal saline solution (NSS), for ocular irrigation in healthy adult volunteers with and without the Morgan Lens.
To test the hypothesis that ocular irrigation with warm saline solution is more comfortable than irrigation with room temperature saline solution in normal volunteers.
Chemische und thermische Augenverletzungen sind für einen kleinen aber wichtigen Teil der Okular Traumata verantwortlich. Die Schnelligkeit, mit der die Augenspülung beginnt, hat großen Einfluss auf die Prognose und Ergebnis der Augenverätzung. Normalerweise wird Wasser zur Augenspülung empfohlen.
Despite following standard treatment, Pseudomonas keratitis can continue to progress and result in loss of vision or eye. Therefore, rapid containment of aggressive and refractory infection is imperative. Our cases demonstrate that Morgan Lens can be an effective topical antibiotic delivery vehicle in cases of advanced keratitis.
Although most offices have the supplies and equipment necessary to treat an ocular chemical burn, they may not be easy to find in the event of an emergency. As such events are fairly rare, protocols are often lacking and office staff may not be prepared. This article provides concrete information on how to develop a systematic approach for treating a chemically-burned patient.
Where does he start? Where does he end? Loran B. Morgan, M.D., doesn’t think about those points, only about what he can do in between.
Dr. Loran B. Morgan, Torrington’s ophthalmologist, has produced a plastic lens that helps to end pain in injured eyes and promotes healing, according to the November issue of the Journal of American Medical Association.
HOLLYWOOD, FL- Loran B. Morgan, M.D., a specialist in ophthalmology, was officially welcomed as a Fellow of the International College of Surgeon (I.C.S.) at the Nov. 17 convocation ceremony at the Diplomat Hotel.
Last spring when 11-year-old Shirley Canfield was brought to the building at 110 W. 22nd Ave., just off Main Street in downtown Torrington, Wyo., she had spent four years sitting in darkness.
Honors and acclaim have come to Torrington’s Dr. Loran B. Morgan, ophthalmologist, but Brian’s letter represents the ultimate in personal satisfaction. Fan mail is a daily occurrence in the office of Torrington’s “medicine man” since his invention of a relatively simple device which aids in the healing of an injured or diseased eye.
An ambulance was dispatched to a local industry for a worker who had been sprayed in both eyes with brake fluid under pressure. On scene, our paramedic inserted bilateral Morgan Lenses. He proceeded to flush both eyes simultaneously with approximately 1500 cc N.S.S. on the way to the hospital. The patient tolerated the entire procedure very well, felt much better, and an examination of the patient's eyes, after the Morgan Lens removal, showed no tissue damage. The patient had a full recovery with no complications, thanks to the availability and efficiency of the Morgan Lens system.Registered Nurse (New Hampshire)
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.
