The aim of this study was to report 3 cases of persistent epithelial defects (PEDs) successfully treated with the combined topical application of a regenerative agent (RGTA; Cacicol20, OTR3, Paris, France) with a bandage contact lens (BCL).
This is a case series.
Three patients suffering from a PED for 4–8 weeks and unresponsive to conventional therapy were treated with the combined application of an RGTA (Cacicol20) and a silicone hydrogel BCL. The PED healed in all patients after 4–21 days, and no side effects were noted.
The combination of an RGTA (Cacicol20) with a BCL seems to be an effective treatment for PED.
