Three methods, such as eyedropping, suboculoconjunctival injection and subblepharoconjuntival injection, were tested comparatively as the therapies for pinkeye infectious keratoconjunctivitis.
The method of eyedropping needed maximum 20 days treatment and 3 therapeutic drugs. The suboculoconjunctival and subblepharoconjunctival injections healed the pinkeye with only one shot in the mild and medium cases.
Severe cases of pinkeye associated with purulent keratitis, keratic ulcer and blepharoconjunctival ulcer were healed with 3 injections on alternating days.
From these results, subblepharoconjunctival or oculoconjunctival injections were proven to be the most suitable therapy for pinkeye.
