    We have previously shown that antibiotic therapy of experimental Pseudomonas keratitis was more effective in early moderate infections than in late severe infections. The purpose of this study was to determine the relative efficacies of various drugs, routes, and vehicles in the treatment of moderately severe infection. As in the late severe infections, the most consistently effective regimen was an aminoglycoside applied topically in solution. No synergistic or additive effect was observed with a combination of aminoglycoside given topically and a penicillin given intramuscularly. Topical therapy with antibiotic in ointment was less effective than topical therapy with antibiotic in solution.
