    Cornea/External Disease

    In this presentation from Cornea Subspecialty Day, Dr. James Reidy takes a sweeping look at all available medical and surgical treatments for recurrent corneal erosion, ranging from lubricants and therapeutic contact lenses to excimer laser phototherapeutic keratectomy (PTK). Depending on whether the erosion is micro- or macroform, Dr. Reidy's treatment algorithm considers all possible modalities and offers staged recommendations from the first episode to recurrent, intractable erosions.
