Recurrent corneal erosion: characteristics and management options

, : Recurrent corneal erosion: characteristics and management options. Insight 32(4): 14-7; Quiz 18-9

Recurrent corneal erosion is a relatively common condition characterized by one or more episodes of spontaneous breakdown of the corneal epithelium. It classically occurs at the time of awakening and individual episodes may vary in severity and duration of symptoms. Classification as either primary or secondary depends on whether the defect in the epithelial basement membrane is intrinsic or acquired. The characteristics of this condition will be discussed and various medical and surgical management strategies will be reviewed. This will provide greater understanding in the care of patients with this condition as ophthalmic nurses and technicians.
