A simple ocular irrigation system for alkaline burns of the eye

A simple ocular irrigation system for alkaline burns of the eye

Ophthalmic Surgery and Lasers 28(3): 255-257

An alkaline burn of the eye constitutes an ocular emergency. Emergency treatment consisting of copious irrigation begins at the site of the accident and alters the outcome of the injury. The authors describe a low-cost, simple, and effective system for continuous irrigation of the ocular surface after a severe alkaline burn of the eye. This system also can be applied by inexperienced personnel during the transport of a patient to an ophthalmologic center.
