  1. Transmission of bacterial agents by corneal contact instrumentation : Clinical study.

    Article - En anglais

    The authors studied bacterial agent transmission in 76 eyes of 76 patients through use of the Goldmann tonometer and the Goldmann 3-mirror lens.

    Bacterial growth was observed in 47 (61.8%) cultures from conjunctival swabs and in 32 (42.1%) cultures from corneal contact instruments.

    The data demonstrate that a careful disinfection of these instruments is indispensable in preventing bacterial agent transmission.
