I was happy to see Dr. Holly's FreshKote, which is available only by prescription in the U.S. and is the same formula as Dwelle but with a lipid added, mentioned in this 4 October 2010 article "Here's a High Percentage Treatment for Recalcitrant RCE" in Review of Ophthamology 1:23:
Here is the recommended two-month treatment cocktail for recalcitrant RCE:
* Muro 128 ointment (sodium chloride hypertonicity ophthalmic solution 5.0%, Bausch + Lomb) h.s.
* FreshKote t.i.d.
* Loteprednol 0.5% q.i.d. for two weeks, then bi.d. for six weeks. (Check the patient's IOP around week three or four.)
* Doxycycline 20mg b.i.d.
