TITLE Assessment and Management of Bacterial Keratitis in Contact Lens Wearers
ABSTRACT: Bacterial keratitis is an ocular emergency that requires immediate and appropriate treatment to limit corneal morbidity and vision loss.1 It is the most prevalent type of serious ocular infection, but infections can also be caused by fungi, parasites and viruses. The challenge for eye care providers is to distinguish bacterial keratitis from other infectious and non-infectious inflammatory conditions by assessing risk factors and evaluating clinical presentations. Then the most appropriate management plan, often including therapeutics and laboratory testing, can be initiated.  Author(s): Joseph P. Shovlin, OD, FAAO; Jared W. Schneider, BS; Helen J.
