O’Brien, MD, told colleagues at the International Conference on Ocular Infections held jointly with the European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons meeting. “Although there have been advances in laboratory models of ocular infection, we have not applied what we have learned in those models to new treatments that can help save the eye.”
