  • Cross-linking for Corneal Ulcers Treatment Trial

    Sorry, not recruiting here

    The primary purpose of this study is to determine if patients randomized to corneal collagen cross-linking plus medical therapy will have a lower prevalence of positive bacterial or fungal cultures immediately after the procedure than patients who received medical therapy alone. The secondary purpose of this study is to determine if patients randomized to corneal collagen cross-linking will have a better visual acuity at 3 and 12 months than patients who receive medical therapy alone.

  • Mycotic Antimicrobial Localized Injection for Treatment of Corneal Ulcers

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    Mycotic Antimicrobial Localized Injection (MALIN) is a randomized, masked, two-arm clinical trial investigating intrastromal voriconazole in the treatment of fungal corneal ulcers. There is currently little evidence to guide the treatment of fungal keratitis beyond topical anti-fungal drops, though intrastromal voriconazole and oral antifungal treatments are used as well. This study will provide evidence to guide the treatment of fungal keratitis in the future. The purpose of this study is to determine differences in microbiological cure for 3-day repeat cultures between different antifungal treatments. For this study, there will be 1:1 randomization to one of these two treatment groups: 1) topical natamycin plus intrastromal voriconazole injection or 2) topical natamycin alone.
