Overnight Orthokeratology and Corneal Infection Risk in Children

Arch Ophthalmol. 2007;125(5):688-689. doi:10.1001/archopht.125.5.688

In this issue of the ARCHIVES, Hsiao and colleagues1 report on the clinical and microbiological characteristics of infectious corneal ulcers occurring in children seen at a major tertiary medical center in Taiwan. While numerous earlier reports in the English-language literature have described the features of pediatric infectious keratitis in the United States24 and in India,57 recent comprehensive reports from other important geographic areas are sparse. Given the influence of local conditions on risk factors, microbiological spectrum, and antimicrobial resistance patterns, this report is a welcome addition to the literature.
