Approach to problematic corneal ulcers
To the practitioner there are two types of corneal ulcer - the uncomplicated and the complicated. Recognising negative healing factors and developing a logical approach to managing corneal ulcers will accelerate healing times, reduce visual impairment and increase client satisfaction. The aim of this talk is to simplify how we view corneal ulcers and to develop patient specific 'road maps' to ensure that we achieve the best clinical outcomes possible.
