Abstract: Azasite vs. Erythromycin ointment

Sounds nice (if uninformative). I don't really know what to make of Azasite for bleph at this point. I've heard all kinds of views from reputable doctors, ranging from considering it a wonderdrug to reserving judgment to dismissing it as pure marketing ploy.

Use of azithromycin ophthalmic solution in the treatment of chronic mixed anterior blepharitis

We tested the efficacy of azithromycin ophthalmic solution for the treatment of chronic mixed anterior blepharitis. The findings suggest that patients with chronic mixed anterior blepharitis can be more effectively treated with azithromycin ophthalmic solution than erythromycin ophthalmic ointment. Patients treated with azithromycin ophthalmic solution show an extraordinary clinical response with shorter treatment duration.
