Thank you for the question.
Corneal neovascularization can be treated with topical steroid eye drops such as loteprednisolone eye drops, 1 drop 4-6 times a day along with oral Doxycycline, 100 mg, 1 tablet twice a day for 2 weeks. Lubricating eye drops such as Refresh tears eye drops, 1 drop 4 times a day can be used to soothe the eye. If the above treatment regime does not help then topical Avastin or sub-conjunctival Avastin injection( into the white part of the eye) can be tried ( however this is still experimental and is not covered under insurance and requires special consent). Lasers can be used to close the new vessels but need to be used very carefully as complications can occur. I guess topical steroid remains a better option with Doxycycline tablets.
