Abstract

ADENOVIRUSES IN OPHTHALMOLOGY REVIEW

Taha Ayyildiz*

ABSTRACT

Adenoviral conjunctivitis is a self-limited disease that usually heals itself spontaneously within 1-3 weeks. Treatment management has focused on cold application, lubrication and topical nonsteroidal antiinflammatory treatment, as effective antiviral therapy against human adenoviruses is not yet available. Topical steroid treatment is indicated for visually threatening complications. Late scarring can be treated with phototherapeutic keratectomy. Preventive approaches are also needed to control the spread of the disease. Regular hospital infection control practices have an important place in controlling adenovirus infection, with general measures such as hand washing and instrument sterilization. Advances in pathogen early recognition, tight commitment to hygiene rules and adenovirus control programs will significantly reduce community outbreaks.
