Light tolerance in infectious keratitis

The authors presented the findings of a study that aimed to identify the maximum irradiance (power received by a surface per unit area) that can be tolerated by photophobic patients with infectious keratitis (IK). They recruited 30 patients (14 women...

Review of pathogenesis of Acanthamoeba keratitis
