Can Mucinex Treat Filamentary Keratitis?

August 11, 2016

Filamentary keratitis is a complication associated with various eye conditions in which strands (“filaments”) composed of degenerated epithelial cells and mucus develop on and adhere to the corneal surface causing pain and foreign body sensation.

The Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary is launching a pilot study to determine if oral Mucinex® is effective in reducing the amount of corneal filaments and improving symptoms in patients suffering from filamentary keratitis.
