Predictors of Response to Treatment in Fungal Keratitis
Corneal opacities, which are commonly caused by infectious keratitis, are the 4th leading cause of blindness worldwide. Outcomes of fungal keratitis are generally poor and the best treatment is not known. This study seeks to determine whether fungal organism and in vitro antifungal activity predict in vivo efficacy in the treatment of funga corneal ulcers. I will also investigate the efficacy of collagen cross-linking in the treatment of infectious keratitis.
