A polarographic technique for quantifying topographically the activity within and adjacent to an epithelial lesion is described. Control values for oxygen flux across the normal tear-epithelial interface, flux values across a standard wound interface, and the longitudinal healing course for such a wound, quantified polarographically, are given.
