Abstract

Current and proposed methods of management of ocular herpetic epithelial disease are reviewed with particular attention to the methods, efficacy and side effects of mechanical debridement, chemotherapy, cryotherapy, and photoinactivation. Special types of herpetic ulceration, including steroid-induced, resistant, indolent, and recurrent ulcers are discussed.
