Answer

Patients are seen based on progress. If little improvement has been made after 1-2 months of treatment, intervention should be stepped up by prescribing antibiotic-corticosteroid ointments or oral antibiotics or by treating tear film dysfunction with such measures as punctal closure or thermal pulsation. Fluorescein staining of the cornea is recommended on each examination.
